Sundays- Typically they evoke images of sleeping in, late breakfasts, bottomless mimosas, and overall unadulterated laziness. This time around, we decided to fight our “case of the Sundays” and make a visit to the previously dormant SF Indie-Mart: A street fair on Wisconsin St. accommodating various vendors who were displaying all things related to design, DIY, jewelry, art and vintage clothes. The event was completed with several DJs spinning oldies and a makeshift outdoor bar offering cheap booze to the masses. This was definitely a different atmosphere than the “Renegade Craft Fair” we had just attended- Most Indie-Mart vendors were based out of San Francisco creating a much more local, laid-back feel. Overall, the weather was beautiful, the beer was flowing, and there was plenty to look at and enjoy. Our favorite stop had to be the DIY terrarium station by Workshop SF as shown below:
Feather hair accessories from Stay In The Light.
Metal forged jewelry from The Urban Smith.
“My recent collection features bullet casings from the San Francisco Police Academy, which I cleaned, forged, and gold plated into works of art. I like to play on the ironic with my jewelry too- I just made a ring that has a large nugget of Brazilian Quartz (healing and calming stone) set in a handmade tension setting. I turn pennies into dollars and bullets into beauty.”
Blue jean embroidered zodiac necklaces by Alchemilla.
Indie-Mart returns August 20th at the Alamo Square Flea market. Further deets TBA.
