Renegade


Today, Nick and I headed over the Golden Gate to check out the Renegade Craft Fair. It's Renegade's first year in San Francisco. The fair was pretty good, not too big, and well filled with people. It felt very much like walking around inside Etsy. A very trendy mix of crafters indeed.

I was very good, this is all I bought. A set of sock monkey cards from Hello Lucky and a little sausage dog journal from Rock Scissor Paper.


After the fair we walked to Ghirardelli Square for lunch and cupcakes. This was our first visit to Kara's Cupcakes. I had the Vanilla with Buttercream cupcake & Nick had the Java (I think I'll go for chocolate next time. The buttercream at Kara's is amazingly flavorless).

We had a great time and walked a lot (this made up for the naughty cupcakes). So nice to get out of the house and see a bit of the city we live so near. Now I'm back to the sewing machine.

p.s. My hands are feeling better today, perhaps I'm finally on the mend. Thanks for all the kind words.

Hey, I was there too! It was like a mini Etsy. Isn't Fort Mason beautiful. I hope your hand keep improving!

I don't feel so bad about missing that cupcake shop when we were there. Although, we had dessert one night at Lori's Diner and it was not very good. I had a piece of chocolate cake and one side of it was hard. I sent it back and the second piece was a little better, but nowhere near moist.

I went to Renegade in Chicago last year and liked it. Sounds like you guys had a really nice day.

I'll be there are some good cupcake shops in Chicago...

Most of the time I am glad that I live in a smaller town--but sometimes I get so jealous of all the cool places you guys get to go to. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to live vicariously through all you big city girl's blogs, lol!

Glad to hear your hands are feeling better! Yeah!

Smiles, Karen
