los angeles and crafts


D and I went up to L.A. yesterday for the Renegade Craft Fair. It was like Etsy in real life, some things I loved, and some things not so much. This is what I got! A crystal and "seed bombs" (homemade compost mixed with California wildflowers) from Terri Planty, a zine about making friendship bracelets (screenprinted with a cool gradient), a bird and horse mobile by Hillery Sproatt (really, really want a bunch of her dolls too), and a leather tassel keychain by Carrot + Corriander.



Other highlights:
It was super fun wearing my cat dress because a bunch of people recognized me! It was nice meeting Caitilin of Nice, and I wish I could have bought her Wild Heart banner. Also had fun browsing through my old neighborhood(s), and catching up with old friends from my former life as an L.A. girl. So much has changed in Silverlake, Echo Park, and Little Tokyo in the last 2 years! My favs were IKO IKO for amazing everything, and Wurstk├╝che for the best fries ever.
