YMCA HOLIDAY CRAFT FESTIVAL
Sunday, December 15, 2013
@ Sacramento YMCA (2021 W Street, Sacramento)
Noon - 7:00pm

This is bound to be an awesome event. First of all, it's for two really great causes. This event benefits the YMCA Youth & Government Scholarship Fund and voluntary donations from the Kid's Craft area will benefit the St. John's Shelter Program for Women & Children.  There will be whole bunch of cool vendors, crafts for the kiddos, and delicious grub. Not that you need anymore reason to visit this craft fest, but there is a rumour that Old St. Nick will be making an appearance from Noon - 4:00pm. Come, support our community, and have a blast! See you there!!!





 
 
We love vaginas! More importantly, we love people that work to end violence against women and girls and we are beyond thrilled to be part of  V-Day Sacramento's 2013 production of The Vagina Monologues! Here's a photo of the items we created for the silent auction at this Saturday's show. 

We think the VagMo folk are so awesome that we've decided to make some more prints and donate a portion of our sales of those items to them. You should definitely follow us on Etsy so you can be notified when we list our awesome new Vagina Love prints!!!

I hope you're all out there loving vagina's!

Dirty Hippie Love,

We had such a wonderful time at our first public event - Sacramento's Indie Craft Fair. We met so many lovely people, sold so many items that we have to close our Etsy store for a few weeks to replenish some stock, and we made some really fantastic connections with some rad people doing rad things in the community. We also got to eat vegan sandwiches with french fries IN them!!! Maren did a great job putting this one together. I don't know how she does it. I swear she's a magician. We can't wait for the next one! We're sunburned and tired and so incredibly grateful. 

Thank you all for coming out, taking the time to get to know us, taking home some of our art, and for supporting independent artists in this beautiful city of ours. 

I hope you're all out there saying yes to french fries on everything, remembering the sunscreen, and making a little magic of your own.

Dirty Hippie Love,
Becks
