In a couple of hours I leave Amsterdam for a short family trip to Rome, but before I jet off I would like to share the most exciting news with you: I got accepted into the Renegade Craft Fair! I'm participating in the London Holiday Fair (November 5 and 6 at Old Truman Brewery) and I am beyond excited.

For A Manic Monday this is a huge step. The Unites States and United Kingdom are my main markets so it seemed logical to join a craft fair across the pond - and Renegade ("a highly curated showcase of the very best in modern craft and design") was on the top of my list. After I got waitlisted for their Brooklyn edition in May, my hopes for London were high. 

When I received the good news I kind of paniced at first, but I soon realised: I can do this! And at the risk of sounding corny: it really is a dream come true. I look forward to meeting inspiring new people and - fingers crossed - scoring a few wholesale accounts along the way. London, here I come!
