It's official, I've got my tickets waiting for me at will call and a hotel booked for the night- we (as in me and the beau) are headed to the Maker Faire this weekend to check out the Bazaar Bizarre! I'm so excited, I've never been to a big indie craft fair because I live in the middle of nowhere, but this one has finally come within driving distance! It's at the San Mateo Fairgrounds, just a short jaunt from SF, and tons of wonderful vendors will be there including many you've seen on Modish before like Ach Ach Leibling, Feisty Elle, Charcoal Designs, If'n Books n Marks, Jamie Zollars, My Paper Crane, Starving Artist Bazaar and more! It will be so nice to put some faces to your names!
Fred Flare will also have a booth set up where they'll be rockin out and giving away a free undersea tote to the first 50 customers who purchase $25 or more! Etsy will be there giving advice to people about making a living off what they love, talking bout the Etsy Labs and giving away some swag. And I just found out that Miss Malaprop herself will be there representing the NOLA Craft Mafia!
