[EVENT] Capsule Street Fair & Sample Sale -SF

111 Minna Gallery, 111 Minna Street, San Francisco
Filling Minna Alley btwn 2nd St. and New Montgomery
Sunday, May 22, 2005, 11am-6pm, $5
nothing but fun! we promise you!


CAPSULE takes two of San Francisco's most beloved traditions — the street fair and the indie bazaar — and brings them together at today's all-day extravaganza. Early birds can breakfast with the designers themselves, but the fun begins for the rest of us at 11am, when some 70 artists and designers take over 111 Minna and the alley outside with booths brimming with clothing, accessories, paintings, photographs, and more. Well-known names — Nisa SF, Erin Mahoney, Babyjak — set up shop alongside upstart talents, while Om Records and the gearheads from Robotspeakprovide the soundtrack. After the stalls shut down, cocktail hour commences — the perfect time to show off your sleek new duds. SK-flavorpill

Note: A breakfast reception takes place before the sale from 9-11am, and a cocktail party occurs afterwards from 7-10pm. VIDEO riot will broadcast all day long on 87.7FM, so bring your boombox!

Amazing! I didn't know these kind of events go on! Prices are cheaper at a sample sale than in the store right? I'never heard many of these names, they must be all starting out designers right? I should support them. I think i'll check it out in a bit. yay!
