Getting Crafty at This Weekend's Renegade Fair
It was DIY craft weekend in L.A., with Unique L.A. stationed down at the California Market Center penthouse, as well as the second Renegade Craft Fair at the Los Angeles State Historic Park.
Most folks hit both events, given the close proximity. But we were pressed for time on Saturday and only had a chance to visit one. Renegade was free... plus, longtime Franklin Avenue pal Emmie was showcasing her ultracool Fomato cards. So it we zoomed over to the park.
You may remember the Los Angeles State Historic Park from its time as the Not a Cornfield exhibit. Turns out, it's also a pretty cool spot to pitch some tents, throw in a couple hundred vendors and have a DJ spin cool tunes.
Emmie said the crowds were decent, and at least on Saturday afternoon, it appeared to be pretty well attended. The two boys were more excited about being so close to the Gold Line MTA trains, while Maria and I found some Christmas gifts for family members. We even took a moment to sit on a hill and watch the sun set behind the downtown skyscrapers.

Celebrate warm times, c'mon! It's "Wool and the Gang."
