Do you love shopping at your neighborhood boutique for unique gifts? Then don’t miss this bi-annual gathering in San Francisco where you can shop for the finest handmade crafts, art, and gifts as well as meet the makers behind the products. It’s a whole weekend of independent and innovative minds coming together to celebrate the creative spirit.
Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion is home to this giant celebration of cutting-edge makers. On July 17, 18 and 19 attendees can partake in a range of fun-filled activities that will inspire and educate anyone with an interest in creating their own goods. Browse a thoughtfully curated selection of handmade wares from the nation’s top crafters and designers. Come prepared to bring something beautiful home for your living room, kitchen or even your wardrobe.
This is not your typical trade show, and the atmosphere is completely relaxed so you can focus on having fun! From hands-on workshops to teach you new skills in home crafting to DIY classes on everything from making your own greetings cards to designing your own clothes, if you can make it, you can find it here. There’s also a Wholesale Market on July 17. This is a great way to sell your goods on a bigger scale or buy custom made products at a discount. The fair is open to the public from 11 am to 6 pm on Saturday July 18 and Sunday July 19, and the wholesale show is open from 12 pm to 5 pm.
