A month ago a couple of girlfriends and I ventured into the Bay Area to go to the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco. My friend Joanne then teased us with this sale so we spent the day happily bouncing around the city going from the Addison sale to Ikea, to downtown Berkeley and over to the Craft Fair in San Francisco. It was a marvelous day and the sun was shining warmly. I felt so blessed to be with good friends in the city a few days before Christmas.
The sale was held at Addison Endpapers in Oakland. Read more about what they offer here. We arrived 10 minutes before opening and already there was quite a line waiting to get first glance at what was on offer. Little did I know what was in store but pure crafty goodness.
I picked up a few items that hopefully will be incorporated into some of my art pieces.
The sale and the shop were truly an eye candy experience. Sometimes I'll see something like this blog or when I looked around at the Addison Endpapers shop and my heart hurts because I either want to be them or do what they are doing. I want to be surrounded by the beauty of pretty things. I want to spend my days just touching pretty vintage things. Maybe I will....one day.
For now I have a small taste of those pretty things which are now happily sitting in my thrifted designated craft cabinet.
Don't forget to bid on this fab 1940's crazy quilt for Patchwork Haiti. We have an opening bid of $100.
