The Renegade Craft Fair is back for its fourth annual Winter Market! Saturday and Sunday at Los Angeles State Historic Park, the self-sewn craft village will offer beautiful and creative handcrafted goods from more than 200 makers. Screw and forget Target, Costco and Cyber whateverdays — buy your holiday gifts from people who actually make things locally, with their own hands. Not only is it the best way to get something beautiful, it's also politically subversive; the most powerful vote is, of course, done with the almighty dollar. And this voting booth is super fun. In addition to handcrafted wood furniture from Against the Grain, hip leather purses from A. Adams and bird-call necklaces from Small Adventure, there are delicious sweet and savory treats from food trucks including Brasil Kiss, Cambalaches and Front Porch Pops. And to spread the “make your own stuff” power to the people, screenprinting demos will be given by The Unincorporated Life, a creative collective and design firm based in Los Angeles. There's lots to love about the Renegade Craft Fair. One visit, and you'll get it. Los Angeles State Historic Park, 1245 N. Spring St., dwntwn.; Sat., Dec. 14, and Sun., Dec. 15, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; free.

Sat., Dec. 14, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 15, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2013
