Makers Faire Tomorrow and Yesterday's Handmade Parade

I am so excited, I can't stand it! I probably have mentioned it 1000 times already, but tomorrow I am headed to Makers Faire! My mother, my girlfriend and I are out the door at 8:00 am. to make the 2 hour trek to San Mateo. I had the good fortune of going last year, and I just knew that this would be a repeat performance for me. I even managed to talk a few other friends into going, and I am equally as excited to see them tomorrow as I am am the show. These chicas are flocking in from San Diego and San Jose. I so have to make sure my camera is nice and charged up!

One of my favorite exhibits will be at the Expo Hall. There, at this magical building, will be about 400 exhibitors and the majority of them will be doing MAKE and TAKES! This is just one of many buildings, not to mention all the outside shows and roaming freak shows!

Here is a video of highlights of last years show!

(sorry, for some reason, I couldn't get the video to play here, but the link will take you to youtube)

Definitely worth watching! Speaking of other fabulous shows, here is a slide show of Handmade Parade. I attended the show last Saturday. Claire is planning another show in November, here is her link for more information.



Hands down, my favorite vender of the day was the California Caramel Company The chocolate caramel covered pretzels were to die for! Oh and get this, they ship all over!

I also bought some cool supplies from Stencil1, who will also be at Makers Faire!

Claire had an awesome mix of vendors. I am so looking forward to her next show!

Here is my favorite picture of her enjoying her fruits of hard labor.
Claire Bone and her Empire by you.
You go girl!

Ok kids, have a fabulous weekend!
