Hi Everyone! My name is Lauren and I'm your newest SF Etsy blog contributor. I'll be providing you with a new wonderful weekly update here on the blog. Each Monday you can expect a new post from me that will feature two to three upcoming local craft events that you can apply for.
I have also compiled a current show list over at the SF Etsy Group site that you can peruse as well. The new page is titled 2010 Show Listings. If you know of any upcoming events, please let me know so I can share the info with the rest of the team. Thanks!

Location: Underground SF, 424 Haight St., SF

Additional Info: The $5 Art Party previously only allowed vendors/artists to sell $5 or less items. They have now increased their price range to $20(max). The event takes place in a bar and the lighting is pretty bad. It is highly recommended that you bring your own lighting and extension cords. This is a fun, casual party event where you can make a little extra cash and meet some new artsy friends. This is an ongoing Monthly Event!
