urban bazaar will host the vagabond indie craft fair on saturday & sunday, december 14th & 15th, 2013, from 11am to 6pm. the event, which includes more than twenty talented local artists and craftspeople selling their work over 2 days (different vendors each day!), will take place in the back garden of the store at 1371 9th ave, san francisco.
recently named “best place in sf for homemade, home-grown, and locally sourced” by airbnb, urban bazaar is excited to bring an even greater selection of handmade goodies- and the artists who make the goods- into their backyard garden for their 5th local artist craft fair. the merchandise offered at vagabond will include all manner of gifts, with a focus on jewelry, accessories, and affordable artwork- all of which make great holiday gifts. the weekend also boasts a number of freebies- like free gift wrapping for any purchases made in the backyard and store, free ornament making with gogo craft on sunday and tasty beverages while you shop both days.
“seeing the success of our past craft fairs brings us a lot of hope for the local art scene. even when the economy is down, a lot of people are still going out of their way to find really unique handmade gifts for their friends and family, and choosing to support local talent instead of faceless, big-box corporations,” says owner briana bers. “we’re excited to witness this kind of community again at the upcoming vagabond… and to get our hands on some amazing goods, too.”
