Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco
San Francisco's favorite craft show is coming soon
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. , November 8, 2010 -- Come one, come all to one of the oldest and best indie craft fairs in the nation!

Bazaar Bizarre began in 2001 in the Boston-area as an offbeat entertainment extravaganza to showcase the DIY movement and handmade goods. We have spread across the nation to cities such as Los Angeles, Cleveland, Maker Faire Bay Area and Austin, Texas.

Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco is a locally run handmade market and D.I.Y. Festival all under one roof! Shop Indie. Eat local. Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco will feature 150 carefully juried artists and designers. Shoppers can expect to find the cutting edge of handmade and locally designed goods: handbags, pottery, letterpress stationary, silk-screened t-shirts, baby clothes, body products and more! Grab a Taco, exotic Crème Brulee, or delectable cupake from the gourmet food carts sponsored by Off The Grid. This indie extravaganza will take place in Fort Mason Center at the Herbst Building December 11th and 12th 2010.

Come and Party with Us!
This year, join Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco for an exclusive evening filled with drinks, treats, goodie bags, and make and take projects for a holiday party you’ll never forget! This year, attendees can make, drink and shop handmade for the holidays at Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco!
