I'm so excited! This weekend is Maker Faire, and it is going to be fantastic! Not only is Maker Faire just AMAZING, but there are many talented SF Etsy members present as vendors this year. And we'll also have on hand many other movers and shakers in the SF Etsy community. Don't miss out on all the fun!
Etsy is a sponsor of Maker Faire this year, and at the Etsy booth (by the East Gate) you can stop by and chat with Etsy admin, SF Etsy volunteers and team leaders, including yours truly on Sunday afternoon. Rumor has it that there will be a giant Treasury generator, complete with plushie hammer!
I'm also delighted to share that we'll have many folks on hand who are involved with the new I Heart Art: SF initiative. Interested in hearing more about I Heart Art: SF (and feasting your eyes on amazing crocheted creativity)?
Be sure to check out nerdJERK and chat it up with Team Leader and I Heart Art:SF co-chair Steph in booth 38 of the Baz Biz tent!
Or come meet I Heart Art: SF co-chair Tammy of punkrawkpurl at the Etsy booth on Saturday afternoon! Or chat with me on Sunday afternoon. We'd love to let you know what awesomeness is being planned!
NerdJERK and many of SF Etsy's own will have samples on display at the Etsy booth, and then for more of their handmade goodness you can go visit their booths. SF Etsy member vendors include: art by lepetitelefant
whimsical pottery by Village Clayworks
jewelry by Sora Designs
Handmade Housewares from Casa Murriguez
art by Nidhi Chanani
Butterflies and bugs from Bug Under Glass
And that's just the beginning! Science! Craft! A Giant Electric Giraffe! Seriously, you gotta see all this. Go here for a complete list of vendors, and here for more info about Maker Faire in general.
