Bazaar Bizarre is bringing holiday craftiness to the Concourse Exhibition Center this weekend, December 1 and 2, with more than 200 local artists, designers, crafters, and food makers selling their goods. There will be workshops and demos on how to make silk-screens, jewelry, and books from matchboxes. Plus a birdhouse-building competition with (supplied) recycled materials.
But if you'd rather leave it to the pros, don't worry, you can shop from a slew of limited-edition prints, hand-crafted jewelry, housewares, screen printed t-shirts, kids toys and clothes, bath and body products, and ceramics. A food market curated by Forage SF will sustain you through the handcraft festivities. We probably don't need to remind you, but, the gift-giving season is upon us! And handicrafts make the best presents. Entry is free at the Concourse Exhibition Center, East Hall, 620 Seventh Street at Brannan. Saturday & Sunday 11am-6 pm.
