This weekend Los Angeles held the Renegade Craft fair, an incredible market with hundreds of talented makers. A few of my favorite local designers were attending so Bryan, Wallace and I hopped in the Prius and made our way there to scope out the goods.
While I was meandering around the market I found some really great baby/design products that I wanted to share.
First I fell in love with the onsies by The Bees Knees LA. They have a series on onsies that feature different streets in Los Angeles and the art is really fun. I am dying to get my hands on this one.
This company has a sister store that does youthful illustrations called MKL Studio . I have always loved the idea of having large letters in a kid's room but have been looking for letters that are unique and artistic. I am loving this one and since Wally's first name is Frank, might have to grab it!
If I did not already have a few crib blankets I would definitely purchase one from Lord and Little (see photo of quilt below). I have been really into custom quilts lately and their designs are supreme. They also have really cool pillows and crib mobiles.
I am addicted to baby shoes, there I said it. I found some great baby Moccs by Rais Case an am hoping they are up on their site soon.
This company makes cactus pillows and you can create your own soft cactus arrangements. Seriously, so cool! I thought this would be a great addition to the corner of Wally's room. Cactus vibes without the cactus spikes.
I have a huge dream catcher by Of the Wolves above Wally's crib and was so excited to visit Lulu at the market. She makes Dream Catchers like this and antler creations like this. Her art is phenomenal for that hippie, boho mom and babe. It was nice to meet her booth mate Nikki Katz who makes beautiful wall hangings like this and macrame like this, both of which would compliment my dream catcher nicely.
I have been really feeling Indigo Died goods lately and spotted these beauties by AtelierOM which could be great for a baby blanket, stroller shade or crib coverlet.
When I was leaving the fair I saw this stained glass by Janel Foo and fell instantly in love. I have been wanting to get a stained glass piece for Wally's room and the colors and shape would work perfect in his bohemian but boyish room.
I am so grateful to live in a city that appreciates local artisans and grateful for a marketplace where I can see their products. As always, support local makers, it's what makes the world go round.
