For our first ever posting, I can’t think of a better thing to talk about than our recent fair experience in San Francisco! We were given an opportunity to participate in Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco from 4/1 - 4/2.
For those who are not familiar with Renegade Craft Fair – it is the world’s largest curated showcase of independent craft and design. Founded in Chicago in 2003, RCF is the farthest reaching craft showcase in the world and attracts 300,000 attendees annually in 12 major cities in the U.S and the U.K, including Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Miami, Boston, and London. Renegade Craft fairs feature hundreds of makers, interactive elements, inspired locales, artisanal food and libations, great music, and good times – and we witnessed that!
We arrived at Fort Mason Center early in the morning and the weather was amazingly nice! It felt so good to be back after a while and it reminded me a lot of my college days at Cal (fun fact: both Jane and Sienna are from the bay area).
After two hours of unloading, setting up the table and a little sweating – we were ready to welcome everyone to our booth!
The entrance of the fair – people are starting to come in and we’re so excited!
All dressed up in our Apron Jane and Belle, with our bestselling items coffee pour over kit, mugs and vases on display, and ready to welcome everyone!
And we met and talked to a LOT of people! So thankful for everyone who came to our booth and we loved every minute of it! Glad we could communicate with our customers in person, get to know each other, and answer all those questions.
Questions that were asked the most include:
- Where are the ceramics made?
- Are ceramics dishwasher safe?
- Are ceramics and aprons customizable?
- Are aprons machine-washable?
- Who are Jane & Sienna?
- Where are we based?

Still don’t know how those 2 days went by, but we feel truly blessed that we could participate in this amazing fair for the first time and meet everyone in person! Again, thank you so much for all those warm greetings and hugs and we can’t wait to meet everyone again at our next fair! XXJS
