Maker Faire

Over the weekend, I participated in the San Mateo Maker's Faire!

Now, when ya think Maker Faire, I'm sure you naturally think of science, engineering or general inventiony-type stuff; however, there were many tents that had many lovely artsy and crafty things! Including the tent I was in, SF Bazaar, where there were tons of handcrafted goods!

Outside of the drone racing and robot inventing, there were some interesting crafty things! There were many 3D printing stations that were printing all kinds of shapes for people to decorate. My favorite was the booth that was making origami pieces with masking tape! There were all kinds of shape like animals and flowers to make.

So I think my critters fit in for the most part.

There were 10 different zones, meaning 10 different large building and tents for people to weave in and out of all day. As a vendor it was overwhelming to find my spot and get set up, but I can't imagine how it must have been for the public trying to make it to each attraction!

SF Bazaar was more towards the outskirts of the Faire, so I don't think we got as much attention as the tents along the main path got. However, it was sill a lucrative show! A little slow, but steady and consistent.

All in all, it was not a bad place to be at all weekend, there was never a dull moment or lack of something to do!

The critters had a blast and give a very special thank you to all those that came out to support not only Ria Art but all of the other lovely vendors at SF Bazaar.
