Okay, I'm just going to come out and say it: Renegade Craft Fair has too many vendors. Yesterday I spent the better part of the day looking at all 300+ booths and while I'm exhausted, I did see a ton of amazing handmade clothing, housewares, jewelry. There's definitely something for everyone, so I've narrowed down the long list to some of my favorites — find out who stood out, after the jump. TOP ROW:1UrbanPosture: Tons of super cute hand printed wood-themed home goods such as clocks, binders and folders, t-shirts, tea towels, cards and pillows.
