We had an absolute blast at the First Annual Renegade Craft Fair San Francisco. The fair took place this weekend at Fort Mason’s Pavilion. As anyone who attended can tell you, it was super busy, so busy that we didn’t realize that we were right near the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz until early evening on Saturday (the jet lag might have had something to do with that too). We had great booth neighbors, positioned between CraftStylish and VenusZine. Amy of VenusZine so kindly supplied us with much needed lemonade during our time of need, and Michaela and Jessica of CraftStylish were the perfect conversationalists during the slow times. When we finally did get to stroll around we checked in with or friends from Brooklyn, Etsy (represented by Pete, Anda and their gorgeous little drool machine Sidone) and ThreadBanger (they were so busy giving away a sewing machine, we didn’t get to spend much time chatting).
The highlight though was meeting so many members. It really was the best feeling to have one of you come up and tell us that you love our site. It was also nice to get feedback from you, thank you for all your suggestions and know that we have taken them to heart and discussed them in a meeting yesterday. I must say California was a very welcoming city. One surprise was the temperature; having to wear a sweater was certainly a welcome change from sweltering New York. Over all a great trip, check out our Flickr page to see pictures. Thanks for stopping by our booth!
