The red cups are back at Starbucks, which means it's time to start your holiday shopping. If you want to be super San Francisco this year, consider buying your loved ones locally-made items. Whether that means delicious artisanal foods, locally-made stationery, or even clothes or jewelry, we're pretty sure you'll be able to find something at one of the holiday fairs coming up over the next six weeks. Before you shudder at the idea of craft fair, let's be clear: this isn't the artsy-fartsy craft spectacular in the school gym. We're talking about some of the city's best independent makers coming together to show off gifts you won't find anywhere else. Know of an event that should be on our radar? Just email us or leave a comment. We'll keep updating the list as new intel becomes available.
