Fairs and Sunshine

There sure was a lot of both of these all weekend for me! On Saturday my boyfriend and his son and I went to the Berkeley World Music Festival. We had a great time, even the semi-reluctant 10 year-old who was convinced he would not have a good time. He made pretty good friends with the gentleman selling chainmail armor, jewelry and hand-crafted "weapons" made out of foam and pvc pipe. He went home with one new "axe." I'll have some pictures from that fair tomorrow!

Yesterday was the Temescal Street Fair. It was a big hit! I think the one BIG thing I would have done differently was water supply! I would have packed a DOZEN water bottles. While it wasn't that hot yesterday it was hot enough to warrant constant water consumption.

I thought I'd share some of the photos from my booth. I wish I had taken some photos of neighboring booths. Something to remember for next time!

Thanks to all who dropped by to say hi! It was a great day, full of great music and friends. I also met some new lovely folk as well. If you missed this one, you can catch me at the next Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco on July 31st and August 1st.


  1. I like your stall. It shows your jewellery and aesthetic well!

  2. It's really great to see your booth design. I've been planning on using some vintage items to display my jewelry for my upcoming show and seeing how well it worked in your stall is very encouraging.
