The owl thing just won't go away. What is it about them that has every woman between the ages of 25 and 45 so insane? We see owl tattoos, more of them than you'd think. Owls symbolize wisdom, owls are ferocious nocturnal death machines, and owls poop collectibles, all of which is tres cool, but what the? At the Renegade Craft Fair, owls appear on cards (Owl love you forever), t-shirts from Bird Mafia, Catherine Reece's ceramics, Shara Porter's handbags, almost all the art prints of somebody who goes by Mincing Mockingbird, and undoubtedly more. Although this glut is incomprehensible, we want it all. Every owl thing. We will never have enough owls! Pretty pretty owls. Luckily the hand-screened Renegade Craft Fair poster features a large Snowy Owl with an abstract rainbow coming out of its butt. Other highlights of the craft fair include our own choice for Best Local Skincare Line, the silky-face-inducing By Nieves, Sweet Meats Plush Toys, and Blue Ribbon Salvage.
