Thank you Rena Tom and redneckmodern

It’s been an exciting 24 hours at the Ranch since our interview with Rena Tom posted and was picked up by one of my favorite Sunday morning haunts redneckmodern.

Since Rena Tom visited our booth at the SF Renegade Craft Fair I have been frequenting her blog Rena Tom retail strategy for creative business. It is an essential read for anyone running a creative small business.In one article she follows Pigeon Toe Ceramics to the New York International Gift Fair, which has inspired The Ranch to do the same – exhibit in the 2013 NYIGF that is.

Thanks everyone for your support!


Getting ready for Renegade "Don't you have some work to do Darren?"


And one more time… thank you Renegade Shoppers!

This year’s Holiday Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco was our best ever, and likewise for the artists we spoke to.

We did well with our small concrete items over the Summer, so we’d planned on bringing ¬†an even stronger concrete offering for the Holiday show. What we hadn’t planned on was the concrete tables being booked up through the Winter, so the ceramics took center stage. I’ll definitely do more with these simple modern hanging planters (pictured above) We broke these out on Sunday for the first time and they went fast.

Also new this year was a wide and varied selection of handmade ceramic piggy banks. We sold quite a few, but I can’t believe no one pulled the trigger on this adorable new javelina.
