Renegade Round Up

Ali and Jam from Hello DODO

We’ve been decompressing today after a mad couple of days. What fun though, we’ll definitely be doing Renegade again. It was great to meet so many designer makers and chat with them about their work and what can be done to meet their needs for online sales.

Our focus this year was on signing people up to our email gift guides and the cardboard postbox worked really well for that. We also handed out heap loads of our sampler containing (as sampler’s do) some examples of makers and work on Folksy.

What we might do differently next time is actually have a space to sit, for people to come and chat with us. A stall seems a bit weird when you don’t have things to actually sell. Next year it might be a chesterfield and a coffee table instead. And maybe a pogo stick.

What we also did do over the course of the weekend was take a portrait of each designer maker with a stall at Renegade. We thought it would be a nice way to document the event as the people so often take a back seat to the product. So here are a few of the great people we met (see them all in this flickr set):

    I went to the fair as a visitor and enjoyed it greatly. Maybe next year I will take part in it. It was so nice to see Folksy there. I recently joined your website.

    Your idea of having some tables at Folksy stand for people to sit and have a cup of tea is a great idea!
    I really missed a tea, coffee and cake area there! Maybe the organizers will improve on this point next year.

    Sending love
