I thought Renegade this year was pretty damn cool! Got to see lots of new stuff, meet up with some old friends, and chill out in the park! Its always been my belief that these kind of events are great for getting inspiration and picking up some handmade gifts for yourself or your bridal party…last year I bought a ton of stuff for my ladies! This year, it was all about me and the new babies my friends are all having! Here are some of my favs from the fair…(my recap from the Brooklyn Wedding Popup Shop is coming up at 1pm so check back, and Save the Date week will kick off tomorrow!)
Not that this had anything to do with weddings, but I just LOVED this whale print from Enormous Champion…who knew I was a whale person??
It was so nice to see Anna Bond‘s invites in person finally! She also had some darling greeting cards
I’m so pissed that I didn’t buy one of Hayley Carmo‘s ribbons! I sort of have a thing for prize ribbons, and I’m totally obsessed with that purple one! I hope its still available…Hayley??
These lasercut coasters by Peppersprouts would make such fun gifts for the bridal party! They had awesome lasercut felt trivets as well!
I thought these posters from Seattle Show Posters were so cute for a newly married couple.
These handmade soaps from MeowMeowTweet are wrapped in the most adorable drawings…another great gift for your bridal party perhaps? I could see them as favors too!
Julie from Bow & Arrow! She just got engaged!
Last but not least, I thought these handpainted mugs from Berd & Bee were so neat…lots of different fonts to choose from. Try filling them up with candy for the kids table!
Esther Coombs makes really cool cake stands and one-off tea sets and plates…using items that are found second hand, she draws beautiful patterns and reworks them to give new life to cast offs…they’d make lovely additions to your registry, or as gifts.

When trying to find vendors to donate items for the B-List goody bags, I wanted to try to find items that could be used as gifts for your bridal party, favors, OOT bags, or accessories for the bride or groom! Here are some of the goodies…
For the couple getting married: customized mugs from Jessica Rust Designs (her work is even better in person!), Sweetie stats from Chronicle Books (these are pretty hilarious)
For your bridesmaids: delicious smelling soap from Saipua, earrings from Viv&Ingrid, headbands from Jennifer Behr, handbags from NELLE Handbags.
For your guests: why shouldn’t everyone get a boutonniere from Rosenow Floral, customized candy from Papabubble, and Citypass coupons (available for multiple cities.
And clearly, you’ll be needing some darling labels to decorate everything with, so why not Stuck Labels? Use their existing patterns or make your own!
