Make Believe Shopping: 6th Annual Renegade Craft Fair

How I wish that can simply pack my bags, fly to New York and spend a day at the 6th Annual Renegade Craft Fair. If you live somewhere close and you haven’t heard yet, it’s going to be this weekend June 5 and 6.

The fair will be participated by more than 300 indie-craft artists/sellers. And if you live in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago or nearby, watch for the up-coming Renegade Craft Fairs in those locations.  Today, I’m going to pretend that I will be there and I plan to fill my bag with these goodies:

 spring floral marble coasters by cary oliva

“thankful” recycled notebook by subu 
sack of six lavender-filled strawberry sachets by chez sucre chez 

large giraffe pillow in brown by kate durkin 

Ginkgo Leaf by milk weed and honey

Are you going at the Renegade Craft Fair?  If yes, what do you want buy?

Make Believe Shopping: $500 Gift Certificate at Talbots

I wonder what I could buy if I have $500 worth of Gift Card to spend at Talbots.

Here are my picks:


plaid jacket ; suede ballet flats

$149.00 ; $99.00

The jacket looks warm and comfortable to wear, so it’s perfect for the up coming season. I love the sweet pink checkered accent. It can be worn over jeans, slacks, or dress and would look great for casual or semi-casual attire. The ballerina shoes is a wonderful pair to match this jacket. And it looks super friendly for the feet.

Now, let’s hit the SALE section of the boutique:

Make Believe Shopping: Brocade Home

Have you been to Brocade Home? My gosh, the shop is filled with so many romantic things for the home.
This dominant white room is a little too much for me but I would love to buy myself a few white accents. The hard part is deciding which pieces to get as I can’t seem to pass off any piece.
geometric pattern side table
bent wood chair
simple white silhouette storage
White Ribbon Quilt
white silhouette square table
embroidered pillow
Petite Moulin Chandelier

Okay, the chandelier isn’t white, but isn’t it pretty?
