A few weeks ago, I went to the 2015 Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco! There are multiple craft fairs around this time of year, where you can peruse and purchase handmade goods from local artisans (as well as artists and crafters from around the country)
The fair was held in the Festival Pavilion of the Fort Mason Center. This huge space was barely large enough to hold all the vendors and their various wares!
Being the stationery lover that I am, I specifically had my eye out for pretty paper goods. Here are some photos from the event!
Real vintage stamps!
If I had the budget, I would have bought it– owl touch lamp from Luke Hobbs!
Delightfully punny nature cards and prints by Frida Clements
I bought the baby owl card in the upper right corner from Ilee Papergoods!
Absolutely gorgeous watercolor illustrations by Cactus Club
Illustrated calendars and posters by The Little Canoe
Not entirely stationery-related, but there was a corner of the fair that was entirely dedicated to succulents and other potted greenery from Succulent Gardens
In addition to cacti, they also had some cards, stamps, and posters
I got to meet the lovely duo behind the Lettermate, a tool that is often reviewed in the calligraphy and stationery community!
Hilariously proper animal portraits by Berkley Illustration. I had to get an owl print!
Clap Clap had some pretty floral cards and nature-themed notebooks
Norcal pride cards and other region-based goodies by Paper Parasol Press
Beautiful collection at Fermé a Papier — especially loved her gold foil cards
September Ink had set up a mini letterpress printing station for making a DIY gift tag!
A collection of pretty business cards I picked up from vendors I liked.
The whole vendor lineup of the 2015 fair was wonderful, and I highly encourage you to check out these lovely artisans!
