I'm interested in organizing a craft fair, along the same lines as renegade, in Houston in Spring 2005 (before it gets too hot!).  I definitely can't do it alone & don't want to if there's little to no interest for one. 

Would anyone be interested in having a table at an event that would be held at a park?  I've been looking for places... it'll be on the north-ish side of town, but I promise not to make it all the way out in Cypress, even though that would mean less driving for me. : )

I'd like to figure out how to get a general idea of the interest in something like this so that I could start to determine location, fees, volunteers to help me organize, etc.

Any suggestions, volunteered ideas/time or anyting else would be greatly appreciated!

Oh, and, hi. I'm Sarah & I read every last word on this site but have yet to post. I'm a little more vocal over at the glitter boards (but not much lately). I like to make things, I like people who make things and I'm tired of driving to Austin to be able to attend any sort of cool crafy event.  : )

That would be super cool.  I would help.

If it's planned early enough I'll come from Dallas to play!

It's all true.
(Except of course, for the lies.)

this is a great idea. i would definately go. maybe you could try to talk to some people in austin who may be interested in coming down to houston to sell their stuff. the drive isn't so bad. let me know if you set up any kind of site so we could stay posted. my crafting skill isn't quite as up to par as most of the ladies and gents on here or else i'd offer to set up a table. you can also try putting up an ad on houstonpress.com's classifed section. i think it's free.

Awesome!  Glad to see some interest!  Any ideas on where to begin?  I guess a name should be determined so that anything I post anywhere (about getting a booth, etc) will be connected by a name. Any suggestions?

Also, any suggestions on a location?  I think it would be fun (& cheap!) to have it outside at a park on a not-so-hot day.

We could affiliate ourselves with Bazaar Bizarre.

I was thinking that it would be good to be affiliated to some other group too... it would definitely help with getting the word out.  I'll look around & see how that sort of thing needs to be worked out.

Oh, I linked to the wrong place.  IT's fixed now.  Another option is Renegade Craft Fair.

This sounds great. Have been wondering if we would have something cool here.

i'm a transplanted houstonian currently living in london
but i will be home in houston in march and later in the summer
please let me know what dates you are aiming for, because if it falls during a time when i'm home, then i would LOVE to participate!
i've always thought that houston needed an alternative craft fair
