Two weekends ago, the Summer Renegade Craft Festival made it's way to Los Angeles. This year it was held at Grand Park in DTLA. It was a great location except for the weather. It was probably one of the hottest days we had in LA, regardless of the weather, I am so glad I was able to stop by. It is always inspiring to be surrounded by so many up and coming artists, makers, and designers. Here is a round up of some of my favorite companies and links to their sites.
I absolutely loved the Close To The Cosmos booth (photo above). They make the most beautiful dreamcatchers I've ever seen. Check out their website here.
Can't go wrong with colorful wooden bangles from Voz Collective. This company is owned by two lovely sisters Lauren and Jackie. I admire their simple approach to design and color. Their accessories are very well executed and they are the type that you can wear all year long. Make sure to check out their Etsy shop, their bangles make a great gifts.
For the inner flower child in you. Gardenhead hand makes these whimsical head bands with synthetic flowers. So perfect for this weather, or if you are a Los Angeles native you can wear these all year long. They are light and stylish. My favorite one was the Arizona style.
Another great jewelry line was Maru. Colorful stones bonded or wrapped with brass and gold metal. Her collection is very abstract and yet elegant, like something you could buy at a museum.
I fell in love with these planters from Concrete Geometric. They were stylish, simple and small. I really like having succulents around at home because they bring life to any corner of the house and they are easy to take care of.
Here is a full list of all of the vendors who participated.
