Renegade Craft Fair
My best friend and I had a lovely time checking it out. Originally, we were going because her coworkers suggested and outing, dinner and a movie. Naturally, that turned into Ruth and I getting up when we felt like it, showering when we felt like it, and finally making our way to Fort Mason at our leisure. It was a wonderful show with lots of cool things, and I made sure the make links of the things that caught our eye. (yes we share a spirit eye. I hope you too will one day have a connection like we do. I have starred the places I really liked.

FUN story about this particular stall. I was wearing my "PARDON MY FRENCH" Sweater, and the women there commented on it, one of them, a very kind French woman. Since I had just been to France, I was excitedly babbling to her about how bread is not the same to me anymore. I asked her if she knew of any place in the Bay Area that even came close. She told me about Fournee Bakery in Berkeley, located at 2912 Domingo Avenue. She said it's the closest thing she has had to bread in France around here. I certainly hope it comes close.
And my favorite part of this story is that I proved that the iPhone is priced appropriately for the class of people that buy a new one every year. When I said the word "Boulangerie" into the microphone, that is exactly what I got. Not Boo Lingere, but the French word for bakery. Truly delightful.
Wonderful cotton casserole and bread bag manufacturers. Featured in Sunset magazine. Amazing for the friend that is kind enough to bring you food.
Wallets and bags and such.
Gorgeous handwoven blankets. Maybe Daddy’s christmas present. ***
Small bags, wallets and things all watercolored, then digitally printed on the fabric. The watercolor kit was the coolest thing.
