Shopper's Diary: Remodelista Holiday Market

Issue 49 · Wild West · December 9, 2010

A huge thank you to all our Bay Area friends who stopped by the Remodelista Holiday Market last Sunday at the SummerHouse warehouse. Despite a persistent drizzle (and the occasional full-on deluge), the space was abuzz with shoppers, vendors, passersby, blog readers, babies, hipsters, and neighborhood stalwarts the moment the doors opened. Thanks to all who participated and to those who came, shopped, imbibed, and shopped a bit more. Market photos by Janet Hall.

N.B. There's still time to shop the Remodelista Holiday Market online; see the full list of our vendors below.
