London Renegade Craft Fair 2011

I managed to visit the London Renegade Craft Fair over the past weekend. Nearly half the tube network was not running (very typical London) so it was quite a trek to get to Shoreditch. However, I wasn't disappointed when I arrived. 

The event was held at the Old Truman Brewery so the space was very open with wonderful natural light. It had a very relaxed feel and felt like something I would have found in my old East Village neighborhood back at home (live DJ included).

People were very friendly and I managed to chat with several of the vendors. I was surprised to find that many vendors made the trip over from the US to attend and even met one who grew up near my home town in New York (small world!).

I generally gravitate towards children's clothing and gifts at craft fairs, particularly hand made dolls and softies. But this time I was drawn to several t-shirt artists, picking up a few unique gifts for little miss and family.
