How Crafty Are You?

I have a weakness for flea markets and craft fairs anyway, but now that I have a wedding to plan for, it's twice as much fun to go.  The Renegade Craft Fair is being held this weekend in Brooklyn, NY (if you're in the neighborhood on Sunday, June 15, it's at the McCarren Park Pool) and it was so much fun to see the cool stuff that people had made.  I am more a craft appreciator than a craftswoman myself, but I love supporting local artisans.  How much cooler is it to have someone who lives down the street from you make your invitations as opposed to having them made in some nameless factory somewhere?

I was so excited to see the booth of one of my favorite Etsy sellers, Pistachio Press.  Rachael Hetzel does beautiful letterpress invitations.  I love the red and white cards here.

I thought these cards from Bow and Arrow were lovely.  I love how Julie's going against the minimalist trend in a really stylish way.  And she does custom printing.  More letterpress to drool over!

I'll have more of my adventures at the craft fair coming in Part II!
