Video: Meet Ooti the Uterus at Renegade Crafts Fair

Over the next two weekends, the Renegade Crafts Fair will bring handcrafted works from 150 makers and a handful of food and beverage vendors to Industry City in Sunset Park. This past weekend, we checked out the first installment of the season and watched as holiday shoppers swarmed the glass works, ceramics, custom leather, jewelry, and a general panoply of knick-knacks. Play our video to hear more about the highlight of the fair, an “expressive uterus” that has caught the attention of the alt right.

Want to meet Ooti yourself? The Renegade Crafts Fair will return to Industry City (274 36th St., Sunset Park) on December 9-10 and 16-17 from 11am to 6pm. Brooklyn Flea will be in the same building.

The Renegade Craft Fair set up camp in Williamsburg’s East River State Park this weekend, alongside regulars Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea. We withstood the sweltering heat to show you a few of our favorite things, amass a collection of business cards, and to indulge in some ice cream from the Coolhaus truck (which, unfortunately, could not withstand the heat). We may have even come away with a purchase or two – because, indeed, one can always use another bloody tote.

If you missed out on the fair, don’t worry: all of the vendors also sell their wares online, and many of them are based locally in Brooklyn. You’ll find links to their online shops with each image, and the full list of Renegade Craft vendors can be found here.
