CRAFTED Grand Opening Weekend

WOAH! The CRAFTED Grand Opening weekend was such a success!! There were literally thousands of people who showed up to see what was happening inside the huge warehouses in San Pedro this past weekend. This being my first ever craft-fair type situation, I had no idea what to expect. But it was indeed a success! Thank you to everyone who came out and supported all the handmade vendors who spent 3 very long 9-hour days showing off and selling their products.
