block party.

I was invited to lead a Make & Take station at the SF Block Party hosted by Civic Center Commons in partnership with my SF Etsy team! This was the first in their series of 1st Sunday block parties for the summer, and it was a special one because the Women’s World Cup Finals were happening (and they had a watch party near City Hall).

I set up shop. Bonus – event staff set up all the tents for us. Easy breezy. I brought some sports pennants for the sporty occasion, plus surprise bags, flower crowns, more pennants, and wall hangings. Today’s best sellers: flower crowns and surprise bags!

And here’s the Make & Take set-up: a paper pennant DIY to celebrate the sports – and a win for Team USA. There were also street soccer matches, games, food trucks, and music. Plus the farmers market across the street.

The DIY was super popular and both little kids and big kids enjoyed creating flags.

And since SF Etsy curated the vendors for the event, I met and reunited with some lovely makers! A few featured here: Alaine of Strides of Cobalt, Shawna of Bloody Girl Gang, Sarah of Earth Love Cosmetics, CeCe of Michezo, and Tiffany of Paper and Scissor.

Thank you to Civic Center Commons and SF Etsy for putting together a fun community event. After the show I was completely pooped and went to bed at 6PM. Good times. Craft so hard! Hope you’re all having a fun-filled summer!

PS My block party haul!
