Renegade Round-Up

Last weekend my husband, one-year-old daughter, and I headed to the Renegade Craft Fair to get some shopping done. We don't shop often, but when we do we try to buy handmade. Renegade was the perfect place to see our favorite {NewNew} artists, and we came home with some great stuff.

First off, check out my daughter sporting this adorable tee from Charlie and Sarah. She loves it!

Next, I picked up this great purple shirt from KimmChi. I've been wanting it for a while, and I was thrilled to see that it fit perfectly and is super soft and comfortable.

My husband wasn't around for the photo shoot to model his Ikyoto Evaporation t-shirt, so my daughter graciously stepped in. Actually, in the 6 years that I've known my husband, I have never seen him wear a printed shirt, so I was thrilled to see him wear it on Sunday. He looks great in it if I do say so myself.

In the kitchen I now have a super sweet dish towel from Cakehouse. Her new dachshund design is awesome. We also got a set of the greatest magnets from WaiSze Designs: they are small, pretty, and strong. I need to throw away all my cheap pizza advertising magnets and replace them with more WaiSze magnets.

I love handmade soaps, so I was thrilled to see DirtyLovesClean at Renegade. We picked up a set of three soaps from her, and our bathroom now smells terrific.

I wanted some small cards to include with my online Etsy orders, and PrismPop's mini Merci cards with envelopes fit the bill perfectly. I also picked up these great printed vintage typewriter cards from BlueStitchBooks for when I need to write notes to the special people in my life.

You can't go wrong when you buy from the {NewNew}. I am incredibly impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of all the products we purchased. It was a pleasure to support their thriving businesses.
