I've always enjoyed arts, crafts and DIY. Even as a child I loved art class at school and my free time was filled with drawing, painting, and creating. My dad is a talented ceramic artist and my mother has always been blessed when she puts pen to paper, so I suppose you could say art is in my blood. This weekend I was lucky enough to have my sister (another fantastic artist) visiting me and we made our way to The Renegade Craft Fair at Fort Mason in the Marina district.
Fort Mason is a 13 acre waterfront collection of historic buildings and piers that served as a port of embarkation for American military troops headed out to sea. But now Fort Mason is a cultural arts center open to the community. On that that weekend one of the huge warehouses was filled to the brim with stall after stall of jewelry, ceramics, paper and home goods, art and anything else one could make or create. My sister and I spent hours squealing over all the lovely hand made goodness we found there. I took a few pictures of some of my favorite vendors, but collected lots more business cards to check out their etsy stores when I was a little more relaxed at home.
I left the fair with a beautiful necklace (Yukako Ezoe), darling dress (Rusty Cuts) and lots of inspiration for future projects. My new lovely things will be making an appearance here for sure. It was so nice to see my sister and have such a fun day together. I hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend as well. xoxo
