I’m thankful for – Day #8 – Craft Fairs
Went to the Renegade Craft Fair SF on Sunday with Hannah and Jess. Not only is everything there SO cute… I finally found a purse to replace the one I’ve carried every day for the last 7-8 years. It’s been a long time coming, and I think this one is going to be a worthy purchase.
I also LOVED meeting and chatting with the sweet gal who designs and makes these bags. It’s such a bonus to be able to support someone’s passion and straight-up quality work.
November! One of my favorite months of the year.
