The Bazaar Bizarre is back for the holidays for the sixth year in a row! Come December 1 and 2 at the Concourse Exhibtion Center, the free event opens its doors to the masses who are in search of handmade, quality gifts and a chance to get their DIY on.
It promises to be the biggest and most fun yet with over 200 local artists, designers, crafters, and food makers selling their goods. Attendees can try their hand at crafting in a DIY fun house with workshops and demos, enjoy a food market curated by Forage SF, and explore a non-profit area celebrating some of the cities most loved organizations including Center for the Book and Creativity Explored.
Choose from limited-edition prints, hand-crafted jewelry, housewares, screen printed t-shirts, kids toys and clothes, bath and body products, ceramics, and more to give yourself or loved ones. Feeling the itch to make stuff yourself? Workshop SF, creativebug, The Crucible, and Rock Paper Scissors will be on hand for fun crafts like silk-screening, jewelry making, and making books from matchboxes. For those who want to get competitive Scrap will be holding a birdhouse-building competition with supplied recycled materials.
And with all this shopping and crafting, you'll definitely work up an appetite. Forage SF has recruited Bay Area artisan favorites like Kika's Treats, Uncommon Pickle, Oaktown Jerk and Maison de Monaco for your eating pleasure.
The first 200 visitors on both Saturday and Sunday will receive a limited-edition tote bag designed by indie illustrator Martin Hsu and packed with free goodies.
Saturday December 1st & Sunday December 2nd 2012, Concourse Exhibition Center EAST HALL. 620 Seventh St. (at Brannan). Saturday & Sunday 11-6 pm – FREE TO ATTEND
