New York Times Coverage of Renegade Craft Fair

Today the New York Times published a piece about this year's Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn. Titled "Where the Crafts Babes and D.I.Y. Dudes Are," it includes comments by many attendees and exhibitors.

Though attempting to be a piece about "hipster style," the article also gives credit to what is a growing market for new wave craft. From describing the increased commercial success of some indie vendors, to registering how much some people are over the whole bird-and-deer thing (amen to that!) and are on to the next big trend (think deep sea creatures), the Gray Lady gives a good outsider-looking-in take on the fair where it's in to be out.

The momentum is building, folks -- Craft On!
