Makers are taking over the historic Mint in downtown San Francisco on November 23-24. Coming right before Thanksgiving and the holiday season, Makers@theMint is a pop-up retail event featuring unique handcrafted goods and other maker merchandise. Makers will turn the old Mint into a giant maker department store. There will be a technology pavilion showcasing the latest technologies in and other pre-production prototypes.
The event is the work of Maker Mart, a non-profit incubator project of Intersection of the Arts whose mission is to give Makers and Artisans a high-quality retail experience. There is currently an open call for Makers & Artisans who want to show and sell their creations to the public who can apply online at www.makernexus.com/application
This event will be open to the public, free of charge and full of maker merchandise, food, music, and entertainment. This is a rare opportunity to get to see the inside one of San Francisco’s most iconic and oldest buildings right in downtown near the Powell Street Station.
