Renegade Craft Fair, BrooklynHaving survived the humidity of Philadelphia, I’m enjoying the cool rain in the Catskill Mountains. We don’t have lightening bugs in Vancouver (the horror!), so being surrounded by them out here is a real treat. Watching them from a hot tub with deer grazing nearby ain’t terribly painful, either.

Michelle mentioned to me a while back that during my whirlwind family visit in New York City this coming weekend, I’ll have to get to the Renegade Craft Fair. It’s pretty much all day Saturday and Sunday, so whatever my plans end up being, visiting cousins and aunts and uncles here and there and everywhere, I should be able to make it there for an hour or two.

Suffice it to say, I’m really excited to get to one of the best known craft fairs in all the land, especially after having checked out the Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philly last weekend (from where, excepting a card for our friends’ wedding, I left empty handed. Which isn’t to indicate that the fair was anything less than awesome—it was awesome).

I get really overwhelmed at big craft fairs, though. The abundant choices are paralyzing. How do you navigate big fairs? How do you decide what to bring home with you, especially if you’re traveling and have limited luggage space? I need advice!

And I hope to bump into you, whenever we make it over there. I’ll be the exhausted-looking one, with eyes bugged out and glazed over, not knowing where to go next.
