It’s time for the summer Renegade Craft Fair happening at the Festival Pavilion of Fort Mason in San Francisco this coming weekend, July 19th & 20th. I’m excited to debut my new line of lettered trays along with a whole bunch of my screen printed dish towels and napkins. Perhaps you’ve seen a preview or two of what I’ve been working on. Here are the details and some pics of what I’ve got going on.

That’s right, it’s the second Thursday of the month and we all know that means I’ll be vending at the Mission Community Market this Thursday from 4-8pm on 22nd street at Mission. Hope to see you there!
This Friday, I will be setting up shop inside the West Elm in Emeryville (the one near the Ikea). I’d like to thank the SF Etsy team for thinking of me! If you’re around, swing by and say hello. Here are the details:

It’s been a while since I’ve vended at the Mission Community Market and I’m excited to return this week! I’ll be there throughout the summer on the second Thursday of each month. Come on out to 22nd at Bartlett between 4-8pm and say hello!
I will also be vending at the North Beach Festival this weekend. You can look for me on Grant Street. Also, while you’re over there, you should check out the awesome store Park & Pond. They carry a ton of local vendors, including yours truly.
None of these announcements have a picture so here’s a random image to make this post more visually interesting:
That’s right, it’s time for the monthly “Meet Market” at the Bluxome Street Winery. You can come barrel taste with the winemakers themselves. Cool, right? So, if you’re into wine and food, I really don’t see a reason to not show up. Here are the details:

After my fancy tray came out so well, I decided to give another tray a shot. Truth be told, I hate the way this tray came out. Hate it. You can’t see it in the pictures but the paint (One-Shot) is way too shiny. Also, you can see every brush stroke. It’s a mess and did I mention I hate it? But there are additives I can buy to make it less shiny and reduce visible brush strokes so while this particular project was not a success, it was a necessary step on what I hope is the way to success. Here is the process/results.
Choosing an ampersand for this tray is a bit of an “is that all there is?” type of joke. You’ve got the tray, you’ve got the things to put on the tray, and then what?
I was really bummed when RAG announced they were closing late last year. The store itself had great stuff and they sold a steady stream of dish towels by The Heated. So, I was really pleased when a new store moved into the space. The store is called Gather and they opened last weekend. Christian and Daisy have really managed to make the space feel new and fresh. Go and check them out! Here is their information:
Address of the shop:
