I absolutely LOVE going to craft fairs, don’t you? They’re not only a great place to shop, but I feel inspired every time I attend! It’s so great to be surrounded by such creative artists and it’s even greater to support the handmade movement.
A girlfriend of mine and I decided to make a day trip to Los Angeles to not only visit Renegade, but to check out a few other gems. First, we made our way to the Fashion District in Downtown LA. There were SO many things to take in! We stopped in several jewelry supply shops and fabric shops and I may or may not have spent a little more money than I expected to… :)
And lastly, my friend’s shop, We Love Citrus. She has the cutest supplies!
I also purchased some yummy pickled garlic from Lemon Bird. They had two different kinds: pickled green garlic and pickled blue garlic. I sampled both and couldn’t decide which I liked more. So I bought both! Yum!
After our day of shopping was done, we met up with my husband to have dinner at one of his favorite restaurants: Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles. If you haven’t tried it, you need to make your way to Southern California and try it ASAP! Some good quality time on a treadmill is needed afterward but it’s sooo delicious!
Whew! What a long and fun day! I can’t wait till the fall so we can head out to more craft fairs! Until then, I’ll stay inspired by all that I’ve seen this weekend and I’ll keep crafting!
