Urban Craft Uprising Summer 2010

Remember this post? Well it’s that time of year again. Seattle’s Urban Craft Uprising Event.

Very similar to the famous Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco, Brooklyn, L.A. and Chicago. It should not be missed.

I love local art and design and supporting local artists. This is the place to see what’s hot in the handmade world right now. And when I say handmade, you will not believe your eyes at some of the creations at this event.

Kari Chapin will be available to sign her book, The Handmade Marketplace, each day from 12pm – 4pm. I’m definitely getting that.

I have a long list of vendors to at least stop and look at. Here they are:

If you’d like to see the full list of vendors before you go click here.

So get your gift giving lists together, and remember it’s never too early to plan for the winter holidays.

After all that shopping I’m sure you’ll be hungry. Just around the corner, near the Experience Music Project, Seattle is hosting a Mobile Chowdown on Saturday, July 10th beginning at 11:00am. Some of the best street eats from Seattle & Portland will be there.

Oh! And in case you think the heat will keep you away, think again. The exhibition hall is air conditioned and there’s a vendor selling ice cream! Mmmm!

Also, don’t forget to watch the World Cup Sunday, 11:30am PDT on ABC. With the way Germany had been playing, I was really thinking they were going to be in the finals. Let’s hope they can take 3rd. I know I should be cheering on Spain in the final match, that’s what my sister would want anyway, but The Netherlands have been on fire!
