Today's Etsy Finds feature was inspired some of my friends who are currently making their way out to/setting up for the Renegade Craft Fair in LA.
One of my friends who will be there this weekend is the lovely Kimberly of Chez Sucre Chez.
I met Kimberly at the first ever craft fair I did, the Hearts & Crafts Affair, which takes place at Cafe Grumpy in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We sat next to each other and chatted away all day (as I am wont to do), and although I have not actually seen her since that fair, we stay in contact via blogs & etsy. She is supremely talented with a needle and thread, and her work has been featured in everything from Country Living to ReadyMade!
However, I thought this embroidery piece was especially apropos today.
Listen to your heart and follow it, even if it takes you all the way to California. (find this piece here).
There's also a New York variation on this theme.
So good luck to all my friends who will be particpating this weekend at Renegade! Hope you sell lots of handmade wares & meet some awesome folks! And if you're there, be sure to stop by Robu Roku, Squid Ink Kollective, Chez Sucre Chez and say hi!
