Last night was my first craft show in San Francisco, and my first craft show in like 3 years, so needless to say, I was pretty nervous. But luckily, my lovely roommate had the brilliant idea of hitting up Chipotle first and then decided to lend me a hand with set up, which was awesome.
The show at 111 Minna was pretty small. I think there were around 13 vendors, and the majority of the crowd was there for the free pie, so as Jen, my table buddy, aptly put it, we were “accessories to the pie”.

Anyway, sales-wise the show was ok. Could have been better, but it was a great learning experience. I met a lot of cool local artists and crafters, and ate really good pie… and maybe had a drink or two. When in Minna…
Also, I wanted to share a little mannequin fail with you guys.
This would be fine if I made slippers for Muppets.
I wanted to make foot forms to better display my slippers (a lot of people seemed to think they were little clutch bags from far away)… anyway, I tried making these by stuffing a sock with other socks and a toilet paper roll. Not exactly a winner. Looks like I’ll have to cave and buy some online.
