Bazaar Bizarre SF, more bodacious than bizarre

Last weekend we attended the Bazaar Bizarre craft fair in Golden Gate Park, which we've been wanting to check out for several years now. Even though this show is located less than a mile from OTF headquarters, it's always been held around Thanksgiving, conflicting with our annual pilgrimage to Toledo. But the show was a bit later this year, so we stopped by and were not disappointed. It gave us a chance to connect with our friends at The Frantic Meerkat and The Mincing Mockingbird, as well as Claudia Reyes of b Green design, whose awesome wood-panel trees are shown below. If you're in the SF area around Thanksgiving-time next year, we definitely recommend checking it out.

Mistletoe Madness

When you think of mistletoe, you probably think of sweet, heartwarming images like Mommy kissing Santa Claus. If only you knew where that mistletoe came from.

Our undercover cameras caught this mistletoe delivery van dropping off a shipment of the green stuff at our local hardware store. Apparently the mistletoe trade is run by an underground network of sketchy, modern-day pirates.

Smooching under the mistletoe will never be the same again.
