Indie Mart!

One of my favorite all time shopping events is back on! After 8 months, Indie Mart SF is back! This Sunday, July 24th, at Thee Parkside, it’s going down! Everything you could ever want and more… shit ton of local and indie vendors selling their wares, vintage, makeovers, photo booths, quirky, accessories, bbq, food trucks, beer, shoes, stiff drinks, they will have it all!

There is also a focus on DIY’ers, live bands and sex kitten/f’d up makeovers!

This is one of the events I always try to make it to, as it’s always a ton of fun. The crowd is a mix of hipster (duh), marina chicks, rough, rugged, and chill. Everyone is out to shop, sip and have a good time. Some things i’ve seen for sale in the past has been shrunken heads, chunky rings, vintage dresses, long studded earrings, sunglasses, and cosmetics. Everytime I go I find a merchant I love love LOVE and can’t live without. And, they are all indie! INDIE! No Forever 21 or sponsored by Macy’s bullsh…. nah. Nah son….

And, this time around there will be street indie food vendors on site as well. Of course  Parkside will be selling their BBQ and tots, but for the first time there will be mobile food vendors representing as well. Brass Knuckle, Kung Fu Tacos, Angry Man Eats (had him last weekend at El Rio, his chicken and waffles were the ISH!), Pizza Hacker and Rice Paper Scissors will be slinging as well!

So, here’s the deets. Admission is a sliding scale of $3-5.00. It’s a fundraiser for the founder Kelly Malone’s cancer treatments. You can also donate $20.00 and get some freebies, a raffle ticket, and entry into the aftershow. You want entry into the bar where the bands play and drinks? You’ll need to be 21+. Otherwise, all are welcome.

Yes my 18+ or whatever peeps, you can come too. Your welcome.

From AP-

 

The California Supreme Court says merchants in the state can no longer ask credit card customers for their ZIP codes.

The high court ruled unanimously on Thursday that asking for ZIP codes violates a longstanding California law passed to protect the privacy of credit card users.

The decision came in a lawsuit against Williams-Sonoma Inc., whose clerk asked Jessica Pineda for her ZIP code several years ago. Pineda sued the company in 2008, alleging the retailer violated the credit card law and her privacy.

The court, led by Justice Carlos Moreno, didn’t address Pineda’s privacy claims. But it agreed that the retailer’s request violated provisions of the law passed in 1990 that protects consumers from divulging personal identification information.

The ruling overturned an appeals court decision tossing out the lawsuit.

Every now and then I will feature items from my personal collection that I love.. enjoy!

 

These pics are of one of my favorite hoodies that I own. The artist featured on the screen print on the front and back is the illustrious Josephine Baker.

Josephine Baker Hoodie Front Panel

Do you have any idea how rare it is to find cool indie hipster gear with a black icon on it… that’s NOT a rapper, or rocker, or jesus? If that’s your thing, hurrah, but honestly I get irritated when the only designs I see featuring people of color is limited to those choices or the usual afro or airbrush of whatever R&B singer is hot at the moment. Bleh.
