Renegade Craft Fair San Francisco

The Renegade Craft Fair is happening this weekend. If you are not familiar with it, it is the biggest and best indy-craft fair happening. It will be at Fort Mason on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. Here are vendors that you must see when you are there.

Tiny Sparks Design
booth 70

My husband's business, Tiny Sparks Design will be there with a great selection of old and new designs. He screen prints his original designs on wood. This bird design is really popular but I think some of his new designs might be even better. He has a new owl that is really adorable.

Seattle Show Posters
booth 17

Our friend Rick of Seattle Show Posters will be there too. He does really great, screen printed posters. All of the art is original and he screen prints them all himself. This one is called night sky and glows in the dark. We got this one for my kid.

3 Fish Studios
booth 139

Annie Galvin and Eric Rewitzer of 3 Fish Studios will be at Renegade with their original paintings, collages, and linocuts. This is a photo of Annie's studio, she has an amazing amount of art that she creates. It is all very colorful and fun. She has a bear series that I love.

Eric's linocuts follow a couple of themes; robots, San Francisco and he has a new series of mid-century chairs. Brad gave me Sutro Tower for Christmas last year. I am excited to see all of Annie's and Eric's stuff at Renegade.

booth 53

Eleen makes the cutest purses and bags! I met her at the Maker Fair in June and fell in love with her stuff. She uses really great fabric, she has great purse designs and the quality of her sewing is amazing. I bought a little purse (I think it was called a 3-way because you could change the strap around for 3 different configurations) for my sister-in-law and she loved it. Actually her daughter REALLY loved it, but I think Kari loved it too. I am going to get some of her pillow covers for my home too, maybe at the show!

So, there you have it. These are the vendors that I think you should visit at Renegade SF this year. Go to the show, bring lots of cash, and have fun!!!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches

I stole this recipe from Courtney's Produce, they sell these sandwiches for $1.50 at their little produce stand across the street from my kid's school. They are so yummy, they are actually more like dessert.

One of Baxter's teachers had one for her lunch on a field trip, when she told me about it I knew I had to try it. Now I make them at home; so easy and so good!!!

Just slap it together. What more can I say.
