It’s that time again! A gathering of the West Coast’s brightest makers and creators will showcase their goods at the one-and-only West Coast Craft this weekend in San Francisco. Mother will be at the two-day event, as well, so if you’ve got kids in tow or just want to say hi, please visit us on the mezzanine level of Fort Mason Pavillion (2 Marina Boulevard) on Saturday, November 12, and Sunday, November 13, 10am-6pm. (Note: We’ll be shooting mama-and-kiddo street style, from 1pm-4pm on Saturday!)

Like last season, we’re curating a special, fun-filled “Mother Lounge” with a play space decked out in Land of Nod goods, a giant San Francisco coloring poster by OMY, beautiful, vintage-style cars from Brooklyn’s own Candylab Toys, arts and crafts by Seedling, and lots more.

On the main floor, there’ll also be 30 “Mother-approved” vendors (a.k.a. our ultimate faves, marked with a sticker) amongst hundreds of others. Holiday shopping—especially for yourself—has never been easier. Check out our top picks for the show below, and see you there!
