SF Etsy at Urban Bazaar's Vagabond Craft Fair

 Hosted at Urban Bazaar and co-sponsored by the SF Etsy Street Team, this third annual event is one of my favorite holiday traditions in San Francisco. It's a two day show, Saturday and Sunday, held in the beautiful back yard of Urban Bazaar.

 There's nothing like spending the day with crafty friends, enjoying some excellent baked goods and warm drinks -- and supporting local handmade by doing some holiday shopping!

It's always a treat to hang out with good friends and meet new people in my crafty "tribe." But this year's highlight had to be meeting Odin, nephew to the SF Etsy captain Katy Atchison -- whom I dubbed "SF Etsy's Youngest Fan!"

I'm tempted to nominate Lisa's sock monkey as the new SF Etsy mascot. What do you think?

 It was a beautiful, balmy day for San Francisco in December. Lots of smiling faces, happy shoppers, and sunshine!

Thanks again, Brandi and Briana of Urban Bazaar, for hosting such a great show! Rumor has it that once again there might be a spring version of the Vagabond Indie Craft Fair -- sure hope so! If not, we'll see you next December!
