In December, Jose and I went with our friend Veronica to the Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Market in San Francisco. As always, we got started way later than planned, and we ended up getting there about three hours before closing time, so we didn't get much leisurely wandering time. Also, it was extremely crowded to the point of being uncomfortable, so it was difficult to fight through the swarms of people to see everything. We usually attend the summer fair, and this was the first time trying the Holiday Market. I don't think we'll be going back again, but we did manage to have a bit of an adventure and find a few gifts.
I got to see and chat with the super-duper wonderful and talented Twinkie Chan, as I marveled at her amazing gingerbread house themed booth, complete with giant gumdrops. She was my number one reason for attending, so I'm really glad I got to see her again.
On the Santa Monica Pier, during our L.A. Adventure last summer, Liezl got blue cotton candy and I got pink. So for one of her Christmas gifts, I bought Liezl a blue cotton candy ornament by Twinkie Chan, and a pink cotton candy ornament for myself. I'm so glad I got to them in time, because they sold out pretty darn fast.
