Manda and I had a lot of fun on Saturday, vending at the Noriega Street Block Party. I rarely do craft events, but now that I have enlisted a bit more crochet help, I hope to do more. I was not really prepared for vending outdoors, since I am used to large indoor venues for Renegade or Bazaar Bizarre, so having a tent/canopy never even occurred to me! At first I was afraid it was going to rain, and then for the rest of the day, it was super sunny! My shoulders got burnt a little, but luckily, my table neighbor (and the woman who invited me to participate in the event) Jenny of SF Knitting Supply happened to be selling skincare products and let us sample her SPF lotion!
Since I haven’t really made an event video lately, I decided it was my mission to capture the day on video, so I didn’t really take many photos, except for the one above with my buddy Logan! We met and chatted with lots of interesting people, and we also delighted many CHILDRENS! I love that children gravitate toward my goodies, but my big hope is to capture this kind of child-like glee inside grownups, too!
Hope you enjoy the video! I will be posting leftovers on Etsy in the next few days :). I sold out of jack-o-lantern mitts, but I think we’ll have a few more to post up, too. I am thinking if the jack-o-lantern items are popular, I’ll do some pre-orders to ship by Oct 20. We’ll see how it goes!
