The Holy Grail of craft fairs took place last weekend at the Brooklyn Expo Center, proving once again that Brooklyn knows how to get seriously creative. We were mesmerized by rows of homemade house wares, clothing, jewelry, and paper goods. A refreshingly unique assortment of products were on display, from metallic inlay ceramics and vintage jewels, to hysterical signs.

Couldn’t make it to the market? Never fear. We snapped the best booths so you can relive the Renegade experience–and shop some of our favorite brands online.

 

It wasn’t the sunniest of days, but The Brooklyn Expo Center was bustling with traffic from open to close. These handmade hanging plants by Elizabeth Benotti greeted us at the door.

Another ceramics designer who crafts both home goods and jewelry, Amber E. Lea, was repping it with these minimal, yet bold stud earrings.

A vibrant boho showing by Baja Zen lit up the aisle with tropical hues and tie dye prints. It kind of feels like a whole vacation in one booth, doesn’t it?

A curated selection of globally-sourced decor and treasures awaited at this colorful booth by The Market Find.

Zola had unique and beautiful ceramics in the form of plant holders, jewelry dishes and artistic pendants.

Boho-chic jewelry by AMiRA in the form of beaded bracelets and necklaces.

These two shop keepers teamed up in one fun and cozy booth, representing Live In Color (graphic tees) and The Knot House, showcasing macrame wall hangings, and planters.

Hands down one of the coolest vendors we found, Beetle & Flor creates porcelain skulls representing various animals with hauntingly beautiful white and gold paint. The shop founder is vegetarian and is meticulously careful about selecting her materials to create the casts. Learn more about the brand here.

Finally, Dahu‘s textured one-of-a-kind tie-dyed pillows and cool necklaces caught our eye and made us daydream of a chic apartment makeover.

To be completely honest, there were at least twenty more vendors that made us ooh and aah… but if we included them all, this blog post would never end.
