San Francisco's Favorite Craft Fair

Welcome to the San Francisco Bazaar SF Steering Committee!

Thank you again to all the wonderful people who applied to be on our steering committee. San Francisco Bazaar SF is lucky to have the participation of 10 community members from the local craft scene.

Cheryl Aronson is a native northern Californian and owner of Moxieville Press, a division of Moxieville Creative. She is a Graphic Designer, Illustrator and Copywriter living and working in Petaluma. Besides design, illustration and writing, she keeps busy with designing custom letterpress and screen printed stationery and notes for any occasion. As an avid thrift store junkie, her current crafty mission is reviving the corsage. Moxie corsages are spun with vintage delights, kitschical nonsense and whimsy, some a bit irrereverent, others sweet as buttercream icing; but always, nostalgic and one-of-a-kind.
