Just wanted to share a few photos from recent holiday shows. I’ll be selling my work at Renegade Craft Fair’s Holiday Market in San Francisco this weekend, and I hope you’ll all come out and get a first hand experience of what these holiday markets are like (so much fun.)
Have you been to Renegade Craft Fair before? It happens in lots of different cities (Chicago, Brooklyn, even London!) This weekend, Renegade Craft Fair is hosting a holiday sale in Los Angeles State Historic Park, and I’ll be selling lots of Cotton & Flax goodies all weekend long. When I get a free moment, though, I’ll be doing my own holiday shopping, and I wanted to share a few of the booths I’ll be visiting.
The illustration above is from Small Adventure, who I share a booth with at Renegade LA. I love her illustrations, and she’s always coming up with wonderful new cards and prints. The postcards are from Paper Pastries, another LA favorite of mine. Paper Pastries is a must shop for anyone who loves snail mail and stationery. The print is from Margins Imprint, and is a hand pulled silkscreen lunar calendar for 2013. I gave these as gifts last year, and they were a huge hit.
I’ll be visiting the SQIRL Jams booth as well, to pick up a few gifts for me, myself, and I. Their strawberry rose jam is out of this world.

Today I am happy to announce that Cotton & Flax will be participating in the 3rd Annual Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market in Los Angeles on December 8 + 9, from 10am-5pm each day at the Los Angeles State Historic Park. I’m so excited to be selling my new line of home goods in person, I love having opportunities to meet my customers and talk shop with other vendors.
If you live in LA, you should definitely stop by! I love doing my holiday shopping at Renegade, there are always lots of talented artists selling their wares. I’ve been participating in Renegade LA since it’s beginnings, and I think it’s just getting better each year. As of right now, the weather looks like it’s going to be great (70’s and sunny!), so you could even take the Metro (the fair is right near the Chinatown stop), and stroll around the park all afternoon.
I’m excited to be participating in Unique LA’s holiday gift show here in Los Angeles this weekend! The holiday market runs Dec. 1 + 2, from 10am to 6pm each day. There will be hundreds of vendors selling their wares, all of which are made in America. There’s a $10 cover, but lots of free snacks and drinks, and fun free activities, including a photobooth!
I’ll be there selling all my handmade home goods, as well as a couple new items which will be sold exclusively at Unique LA! I’d be so delighted to meet any of my blog readers, so if you live in LA, please stop by and say hello!
Visited the Unique LA spring show this weekend, and I’d love to share a couple of my new favorite shops that I found there. For those who’ve never been, Unique LA is a thrice yearly independent design show, which features a great assortment of local California makers, as well as some excellent designers and artists from around the US. Here are a couple new-to-me companies, I snapped a few photos of their booth with my phone (forgot my real camera, whoops!)
On the left we have The Academy, with some great menswear that they carry in the shop in Long Beach. On the right, the neon hued jewelry of KYYOTE, which is handmade in LA (these porcupine quill earrings were hand dyed to get that vibrant hue!)
There were so many other great vendors at Unique LA, I wish I could have documented more of the fair. I’ll have to visit again for the summer or holiday fairs!
