Living in the Bay Area is a blast especially the East Bay. I sometimes visit the Oakland Museum and enjoy the Off The Gird festivities, and one of the last times I did I scored free tickets to the American Craft Councils, American Craft Show event at Fort Mason in SF (August 5, 6, 7).
The pavilion was filled with craftsmen (women) from across the country, including some from the Bay Area. If I didn't love food so much, I'd be ashamed to say that all my purchases were from the food crafters.
That's not to say I didn't want almost all the jewelry I saw as I walked the aisles. There were some amazing and very creative people there one woman who created jewelry for actual food, another from skateboard decks. Check out the pictures below to see some of my favorites. Also stay tuned for a post about my favorite artist from the show.
