  • You know summer has arrived when the Renegade Craft Fair, comes to Brooklyn! It’s this weekend — June 14th & 15th, 2008. Meet tons of Etsy sellers in person and stop by the big Etsy booth for free goodies and a super supply sale! Hint: Make sure you bring your cameras for Etsy’s super cut-out photo board — need I say more?

Renegade co-founder Sue Blatt offers her tips on how to make the most of the experience:

"For visitors: Pick up an Event Program at the RCF Info booth right when you arrive so you can find your favorite vendors on the map! For vendors: Bring a friend with you to help out at your booth so that you get a chance to walk around and see all that the fair has to offer."

See the related items below for just a small sampling of Etsy sellers that will be representing this weekend.

  • Got an Etsy Team event coming up that you could use some help with? Check out the Etsy Team Grant program. And a quick reminder for those of you in the know: this month’s round of applications are due today!

Monday, June 16th

  • Craft Night at the EtsyLabs in Brooklyn, NY from 4pm to 8pm. Join us and learn how to make birthday cards and envelopes from recycled paper in honor of Etsy’s third birthday! You can also bring your own project if you wish and get to know your fellow crafters.
