Renegade Craft Fair SF

Ok, well, a week ago tomorrow I went to Renegade Craft Fair in SF and I'm just now getting around to telling you about it! It's been a busy week!
I ended up going by myself, which was cool. Sometimes you just need to do things on your own so you can do them the way you want to!  I ended up driving all the way around to Fort Mason along the embarcadero because I wasn't paying attention when I got off the freeway. That was good though because I hate driving on the hills in SF. I found parking with relatively low levels of stress which was kind of amazing!

I really liked this vendor's jewelry! It was beautiful, very well made and unique. The colors were fantastic!

The necklaces were stunning but what I really wanted was a pair of these little stud earrings. There was a pair that looked like sea urchins that were fantastic. She uses old buttons and other forms to create the designs in the porcelain.

Figs and Ginger was a fantastic find, I recently found them on Etsy so when I saw them at Renegade I was pleasantly surprised to see a shop I recognized. I love their wood etching pieces and I hope to own some someday! I just watched a video of them on their website and they are so friggin cute! I love the little camper they work out of!

I didn't get very far into the fair before I was starving. I stopped for falafel and enjoyed the beautiful weather.  I have new Tom's Shoes that my roommate bought me, and I love them so I took a picture. Everyone should have red shoes.

Not too shabby...

These guys were so cute! They make ties out of salvaged wood. I loved their booth and the simplicity of it.

I thought this guy was so cute in his hat and his wood tie I asked him if I could take his picture.

Sadly I didn't get to try any of these, they were sold out. :( I took a picture though so one of my many baking friends can make them for me! I'm especially interested in the orange beersicle cupcake made with Blue Moon beer.

After I left the fair I decided to plop my butt down on a hillside in Fort Mason and enjoy the day. Who wouldn't want to sit and watch people and the Golden Gate Bridge!?

I headed back up the hill towards a little place I have had on my must visit list for a while, on the way I passed numerous cool houses, and vespas!

 At some point in my Internet surfing I came across Loving Cup. I love rice pudding so I had to go to this place and it was right up the street from where I parked my car on Polk St. so I decided that was the day!

I had half vanilla and half coconut with cinnamon and nutmeg on top. As you can tell, I didn't like it at all... Their smoothies and frozen yogurts looked so good too, I definitely need to go back! I sat in the window and people watched while I savored my treat!

Loved this house, it's really set back from the street which is unique.

I was really close to Lombard St. so I walked up the hill to witness all of the tourists there to see the curviest street in the world.

When I left the city I took Marina all the way around towards the Presidio and ended up on the bluffs overlooking the ocean! I've never done any exploring of the Presidio and was pleasantly surprised to find this little gem of a spot! It was so beautiful out there!

All in all it was a great day!
