If you are in the Bay Area, don’t miss the second annual Holiday Artisan Fair 2008 at the De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park San Francisco on November 21 and 22. This festive seasonal event offers distinctive pieces from tabletop to textiles that make for artful gifting. The Fair will feature the work of seventeen of the Bay Area’s finest artisans, as well as an expanded selection of unique gifts, books, objects and jewelry from noted designers and publishers featured in the Museum Store. The Fair will be held in the de Young’s Piazzoni Murals Room. Admission is free, and FAMSF members will receive a 10% discount on all purchases. I got a chance to see a small preview at the De Young last month and you can see the photos in my Flickr photo set. Pictured above is artist Hiroko Kurihara and her handmade home decor and accessories. Each time a product is purchased from her, a blanket or scarf is donated to someone who is homeless or a tree is planted for community sustainability.
