I kicked off my Feed the Fish co. summer crafty events with the Girl Gang Craft June Market. There were over 120 makers, a live DJ, food trucks, and a raffle.
This venue though. The event was held at the Oakland Scottish Rite Center. I’ve attended some work conferences here so I was a little familiar with the space and how grand it is, but I didn’t realize how many vendors you could fit in there! Some images from set up…
My booth! I was super excited that I got assigned to a corner booth with a wall! Double special. I brought a new sign holder (my letterboard has been knocked down too many times) for my felt flower crown bar sign and we were allowed to hang things on the wall with painter’s tape so hang I did. It all came together nicely.
It was a long show (six hours!). My squad brought me snacks to keep me alive. Spicy tuna bowl and shrimp nachos from Bonito Poke (Thanks, Hubby!), iced chai by Bhakti (Thanks, Angel!), and this massive doughnut from City Garden Doughnuts (Thanks, Rebecca!).
So…I made a pennant for the occasion and made my friends take photos with me. This show felt like a fun crafty reunion. Thank you to everyone who came to hangs with me and to new friends, too!
Also always fun – maker trades! This time I traded felt delights with Jeannine of Tangleweeds (for neck candy!), Roberta of Rennie (for arm candy!), and Gill of Gill D. (for paper candy!). So. Good.
Thank you to Girl Gang Craft for having me for this event. What a fun start to summer! How did you kick off summer? Share below!
