Bay Area readers and visitors: We hope to see you this weekend at our Remodelista Market San Francisco.
Above: Today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Heath Ceramics nearly 50 local artisans from the San Francisco area will be showcasing homewares, clothing, jewelry, organic botanicals, gourmet foodstuffs, and more (plus, we’ll will have a new Remodelista/Gardenista canvas tote on offer).
If you’re further north, come visit us next weekend, December 17 and 18, at our Remodelista Market Portland, Oregon, hosted at Rejuvenation.
Now, a look at what’s been piquing our interest this week.
