Special SF Etsy FabMo Distribution!

It's time for an SF Etsy field trip! We hope you'll join us for a special get-together at  FabMo, the fabulous local resource for upcycled fabrics and other goodies. You'll find many, many fabric samples -- in all sorts of colors, sizes, and designs -- as well as wall papers, tiles, trims.... it's always a treasure hunt!

 I've now had the pleasure of attending several FabMo distributions, most recently on my birthday weekend (when I took the picture above). It's an amazingly rich resource for creative folks. In other words, perfect for SF Etsy members!

While FabMo hosts monthly distributions that are open to the public, this Monday August 6th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. FabMo will open its doors for an SF Etsy-only event.  Be sure to bring your own bags so that you can tote home your treasures! And don't forget cash or a check -- while the event is free, all the items are generously offered on a donation basis. FabMo is a nonprofit organization, 100% volunteer run, and it relies on donations for its existence.

The distribution warehouse is located in Mountain View at 2423 Old Middlefield Way, right behind Baji's Cafe.

We've also been asked to mention that FabMo's fourth annual Textile Art Boutique will be held in October and still has spots available. For more info on that, go here.

Let us know in the comments if we should expect you at FabMo on Monday! Usually, they require appointments and while the 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. event is open to any and all SF Etsy members, it would be appreciated if we know how many people to expect. I'm certainly hoping to make it!

(And if you're a reader but not an SF Etsy member, please feel free to make an appointment at one of the public FabMo distributions later on in the week. Just go here to do so.)

A big thank you to Rebecca of OodleBaDoodle for organizing this very special SF Etsy event!

If you're an Etsy seller in the San Francisco Bay Area, contact Katy or Steph about joining SFEtsy!

so exciting to have an exclusive sfetsy opening! you guys are going to find amazing stuff!

Just one correction. . .
The implication of the term "distribution" is more like a food closet where you pick up stuff that someone else picked out. FabMo's new term is "Selection Event" because that's really what happens - YOU get to select what YOU want.
MUCH more exciting and useful!
Next public Selection Event is Aug 9-11. for details.

Thanks for updating the lingo for us... "selection event" -- I like it!
