Introduction of a Stranger

Made a few connections with vendors at the San Francisco Renegade Craft Show at Fort Mason! I even got a client from the fair!

San Francisco Renegade Craft Fair

The Renegade Craft Fair at Fort Mason is one of my favorite fairs up here in the Bay Area. I thoroughly enjoy being surrounded by crafters/artists and other fun (and often random) enthusiasts. Where else can you find such great handmade goods, all while gaining inspiration and encouragement for your own creative pursuits?

I meet such wonderful people whenever I go to renegade.. including Ben and Liz, a couple who I am elated to shoot soon! I came across Liz's booth and was convinced to buy one of her handmade rings to replace my rings (one from Cambodia and the other from Peru) with one of hers. And I've worn her ring since then. I also discovered my middle finger is a size six, my thumb is six and a quarter and my ring finger is a five and a quarter. Good to know!

Anyway, the Renegade Christmas Craft Fair is coming up Dec 18 & 19! Am so excited!

renegade your heart out

I had the pleasure of going to the renegade craft fair a bit ago. It was magical. Because I missed the Maker Faire, this craft fair was that much more wonderful. The venue was at Fort Mason, and boy was it beautiful! The warehouse was spacious and bright, perfect for showcasing the work of so many talented vendors.

I really wish I had jotted down the names of the vendors.... i hope someone can comment to credit the work of these people... eeks.....

Here are some fabulous teacup light fixtures. Very clever and quite beautiful.

These little guys make me super happy

The artist who created these shirts is just sooooo clever--using the sleeves as ruffles. So beautiful. I covet this shirt most definitely

I love this postcard lady. She had such a vibrant personality, even through the postcard-vending-machine-cover-thing. Yay!!!

I'll have to post later on the wonderful things I picked up at the fair!
