This season, holiday shoppers can forget the generic gift card or fruitcake—on November 24 and 25, the Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market will set up shop at the Palmer Events Center, showcasing an array of unique artisan goods. With its signature do-it-yourself spirit and a touch of holiday cheer, Renegade invites guests to celebrate independent makers from across the country. “We hope everyone who comes to the fair leaves a little more inspired, a little more appreciative of the handmade movement and with a little more creative spark,” says Sarah Spies, Director of Media Relations for the event. From handmade jewelry to elegant notebooks, Austinites can explore beautiful goods by local and national artisans, including Son of a Sailor, Stitch and Saw and Fair Morning Blue. “There is no better way to spend a weekend,” Spies says.

The word “crafts” may evoke images of glue sticks and knitting needles, but the Renegade Craft Fair on May 19 and 20 channels anything but school projects or grandma’s new knitwear. In fact, as befits its name, the fair celebrates the independent, do-it-yourself spirit of its carefully juried artists and vendors. Entering its third year in Austin, the fair has showcased its one-of-a-kind wares around the nation and across the Atlantic, from Brooklyn to London. Whether you’re looking for clothing or accessories, collectibles or curios, the Renegade Craft Fair offers an innovative perspective on handcrafted goods.
