Renegades of Crafts
Saturday, June 14th, Samantha,(my wife) and I checked out the Renegade Craft Fair at the McCarren park pool in the "human dogrun" park of North Willy B.
This former Robert Mosses created public pool has been the home to a series of concerts and movie screenings for the past couple of summers, reviving a long time abandoned piece of public space. Saturday it was turned into a massive sea of pop-up tents with artists and crafts makers.
There was really great stuff here and lots of amazing gifts.
Just wanted to give a shout out to a few vendors who I thought were cool.
It was really nice to see lifelong biker and artist Taliah Lempert of Bicycle Painting.
Taliah creates amazing paintings of bicycles, makes prints and coloring books for kids.
Also there was Vaya messenger bags.
Ah, free advertising.
I was a big fan of Mr. Poncho. Making awesome ipod covers which have a special way of keeping your earbud headphones from getting all tangled.
I bought a Bob Marley one. Nice!
We also got this cute onezee from Clever Violet with a print of a bicycle.
