Featured at the 10th annual Maker Faire Bay Area.

The San Francisco Bazaar was back again for the 2015 Bay Area Maker Faire. There were 85 booths with 90 artists showing off and selling the amazing things they’ve made. There was everything from laser cut jewelry to paintings to handcrafted metal garden art. We didn’t get a chance to interview everyone there, but here is a sample of what was available during this year’s Bazaar at the Maker Faire.

Check out the video above and then read below to find out more about the artists and their wares.
