Yes, "Kindred" is yet another holiday mart happening in December in the Bay Area. But its organizers promise a small, well edited gathering of "makers" rather than a craft fair taken over by feather earrings and fringed T-shirts.
Organizers Lynn Russell of Satsuma Press and Teresa Robinson of Stone & Honey have gathered a little more than a dozen craftspersons from the US and Canada including the bow tie makers from Forage Haberdashery, textile and stationary designer Leah Duncan, and Portland-based scent masters Olo Fragrance.
It's happening on Saturday December 15th from 11am until 7pm and Sunday December 16th from 11am until 5pm at Makeshift Society, 235 Gough Street in San Francisco. There will be gift opportunities for virtually everyone on your list.
