Sunday afternoon mom and I headed to the Renegade Craft Fair. It was in a beautiful location next to the San Francisco Marina. It took us a few minutes to find the actual Craft Fair because we walked into the opposite side of the Fort Mason Center, but eventually we saw the sign and all of the super stylish people entering and exiting. I was so excited to be there. My mom said I was acting like a kid in a candy shop. I can't believe how insanely creative everyone was with their booths and merchandise. Everything I had previously looked at online was 100 times more amazing in person. Next year I will have to save up $500 so that I can come away with maybe half of what I want. It was so great being able to meet and chat with all of the talented artists and crafters. Everyone was incredibly sweet- such a fabulous community of unique and caring people.
It couldn't have been a more beautiful San Francisco day. We parked a number of blocks away, but enjoyed admiring the gorgeous homes on our sunny walk to the Fort Mason Center.
I came away with loads of business cards, an Etsy pin and chapstick, an "I Love You Because" print from Seattle Show Poster, and the tugboat and print below. Next year I hope to return home with one of Mat Daly's prints as well.
I fell in love with this little KG & AB porcelain tugboat. When I took it out of my bag to look at it later, I noticed it's little smiling face for the first time and now I love it even more.
My very own print from The Mincing Mockingbird. I adore this little bird and the beautiful colors. I definitely could have walked away with many more. Mincy and his fiance' Kim were so sweet and it was great to meet them. I also enjoyed meeting Danni of oh, hello friend (such a sweetheart), Brandy of Beestorms, and many others. It was such a wonderful day. I wish Renegade Craft Fair was every weekend. Or how about someone opening a Renegade Craft Mall? Yes, please! I can't wait until next year!
