It is about 5 degrees warmer in the shop than outside, but we have lots of fans, and it is tolerable.  We are still on a push to make goods for ‘Prepare for the Playa‘.
New skirts, shorts, kilts, belts and pouches rolling off of the line.  Hard to focus, but we are amped.

ZeekoBag has had the privilege of participating for the last two years in Chikoko’s Holiday Artisan’s Faire.  This event is great in that we get to be part of a larger community of artisans, and that it forces us to produce enough inventory for an event.  At this time, this has been the only event that we sell at.  

Here is a sampling of the items that we made for sale at the 2009 Winter Faire.

All of the bags above are spoken for or gone, but similar bags are available.  Due to the nature of using found objects, sometimes we run out of a certain kind of material or hose color.
