A couple weeks back my friend Kelley and I went to the Renegade Craft Fair here in London at The Old Truman Brewery. Let me just tell you, it was more etsy pop-up shop than traditional craft fair. Pure amazing-ness. I was blown away by all of the handmade things. Some people are so darn talented. It was a craft/diy-lover's heaven right there in that old brewery. I left feeling so inspired to make stuff. :)
I have a bit of a thing for throw pillows and tea towels and had to really hold myself back from buying twenty of each. Haha. All of the gorgeous fabrics, some hand-stamped, were beyond!
Gah, if only I had somewhere to hang this print! I love how quirky it is.
So cool to see a lot of the vendors at work doing their craft while manning the booths!
I picked up a bunch of Christmas gifts and I'm just dying to share them here. A lot of the recipients are readers, however, so have to keep that to myself. ;) I can share that I bought one of those cloud pillows for Josephine. How darling are they?? 
The Renegade Craft Fair has some dates in the US, too. So be sure to check out their website to see when one might be coming to a city near you. Chicago is this weekend and LA is next weekend, just FYI. I am already planning on going to RCF-London again next year!!

Some of my favorite vendors...
the fox in the attic
rosie moss
ketchup on everything
georgia bosson
pygmy cloud
pikku potin
clare nicolson

I mentioned in this post how much I LOVE the zipper pouch I got at RCF from Oh Squirrel! It is my favorite way to transport all my fave oils and roll-ons! It is also a great pouch to keep all your essentials in one place in your purse or diaper bag. I wanted to share the love by giving away the pouch below to one of you guys! I will also be including a bottle of Christmas Spirit, one of my favorite oils for this time of year. Ho ho ho!
