Renegade, Sans Lorenzo Lamas

Last weekend Chaptastic visited the mecca of everything craft: the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn. We saw more adorably embroidered animals, asymmetrically placed industrial graphics and ironic-nostalgic hand-printed postcards than we thought existed. If you ever wanted to know what kind of people purchase button-makers...this is the place for you.

We bought a few new sticks for review (up soon) and picked up a thick wad of business cards from pretty much every vendor we came across. The best part of our day, however, was running into the fabulous Hannah, the sultan of smooch and maker of the Lizzie Sweet line of delectable lip balm and bath treats, the former of which we reviewed a few months ago. In fact, our visit to the Bust Craftacular in December where we first met Hannah is what spurred us to start Chaptastic, so in a way we owe it all to her. Not only did she overlook our crazy fit of giggling and elbow nudging as we approached her, but she was super nice and gave us samples of some of her bath products, all of which smelled good enough to eat (holy crap, that chocolate one!). If you're looking for amazing, drool-inducing gifts or self-indulgences, head over to Lizzie Sweet.
