As seen with this weekend's stacked itinerary of holiday bazaars, it's no wonder that LA is the home base for crafty awards ceremonies. If this week's many markets are still not enough to satisfy your indie gift shopping, clear your sched for the return of the Renegade Craft Fair at DTLA's Grand Park next week.
Taking place Saturday, December 13th and Sunday, December 14th from 10am to 5pm, expect over 250 independent artisans peddling handmade clothing, accessories, home goods, garden decor, stationery, and more DIY wares. Local talents on the roster include apparel and textile brand 3rd Season, kimono maker Sacred LA, jewelry designers Sophie Monet and Nikki Montoya, stationers Ink and Smog Editions and Small Adventure, and many others. As always, LA's favorite grub spots and food trucks (Umami Burger, Son of a Bun, more) will be on hand to refuel shoppers, while free workshops, and a photobooth will provide hands-on entertainment.
