renegade craft fair, part 2

As promised, here is the second installment of my Renegade Craft Fair day. I found a few perfect gifts this year: a pair of beautiful votives from Julie Dye Craft for my sister, a cute notebook for my sister-in-law and a print (that I’m using as a birthday card) for Joel.

I couldn’t resist these beautiful Little Things Studio note cards. I think her yarn and balloon packaging is just adorable!

And I had to bring home treats from Milk & Honey: lemon & lavender cookies and cranberry & chocolate chip pastries.

Preface: I’m going to use the word “we” a lot in the next few paragraphs. So quickly here’s a little introduction. We means myself, my friend Abby and her two friends Alyssa and Tracy. Now you know.

Even though it was warm-ish we made a wise decision and ordered cappuccinos from the pop up Intelligentsia counter. The options were: espresso or cappuccino.

After our delicious coffee, we were lured into Penelope’s by their strategically placed sale racks. I love Penelope’s. It is clean, well designed and full of things that I would buy and buy I did.

I picked up a beautiful plaid shirt and dress both by Bridge and Burn. The shirt will be so cozy and perfect for walking in falling leaves. The dress will be great for multiple seasons and those funny in between seasons, too.

After lots of shopping, we were all ready for a break and a snack. Milk & Honey was the perfect retreat! I love their food, branding and outdoor dining area. Just look at that cute succulent that was on our table.

I thought Tracy’s red leather sandals were too pretty not to photograph.

Tray’s apartment was on our way back to the train so we stopped in. Oh my goodness, it is such a tranquil wonderful space!
