California Dreamin'

san-fernando-valley

In July, I will be heading back to my home state, California. I have a wedding to attend in Los Angeles and then will be traveling up to San Francisco for Renegade Craft Fair. It's my first fair that I will have to travel for and I am somewhat nervous about my ceramics breaking and all fitting in my hatchback. We took the back seats out of my hatchback to give us a few more inches and reduce the weight of the car!

Right now, I'm preparing for the fair which include making all my inventory, cutting business cards, stamping gift bags, and designing a booth set up. I will be creating some new products that will be at Renegade Craft in San Francisco, so I have also been designing those to try at market. I will also be attending the wholesale market on Friday, July 17th. I can't wait to meet everyone who will stop by at the fair! 

I'm excited for the road trip through California, being by the beach, eating amazing food, going wine tasting and seeing my friends and family. Can't wait to see all my California friends soon and bring my ceramic wares back home!
