This past weekend, Temescal Telegraph Business District – Oakland organized the third annual Temescal Holiday Fair: Creators & Critters for Bay Area shoppers to find beautiful & unique gifts while supporting Temescal’s independent artists and enjoy access family friendly crafts and a free petting zoo. This year, we at the Er Group, we were lucky to sponsor and participate in the event!
Our team hosted a DIY ornament bar where we saw over 100 creative ornaments assembled by kids and adults.
It was so great to meet the community that we serve! Check out some of the festive creations!
The Temescal Holiday Fair is a great way to support our local artists and get some holiday shopping done all in the same place: Amazing Oakland-themed prints and greeting cards from Pamela Baron, dog bandanas and water colors from KB Made; masks, t-shirts & bags from Dawn Kathryn Studios, all natural Oleema skincare, jewelry by Prism Jewels, art print by Lexi Martinez, sculptures & other fine art from Temescal Artist Community; olymer clay accessories and macrame + weavings from templecooperative, Prints & mixed media from Shelby Designs & Illustrates, circular moon calendars from Bowerbird Atelier, UnsettleCompany bags, MahoganyTouch Health and Wellness soaps, bath bombs and massages, and more! The Emerson Elementary School offered crafts and face-painting, and Crimson Horticultural Rarities demonstrated how to make holiday wreaths, also available for sale.
With a full roster of holiday entertainment and cheer, visitors were able to enjoy a festive winter stroll while supporting local businesses.
It was a hit and we are looking forward to making this an annual tradition with the team.
