San Francisco Center for the Book Holiday Fair

San Francisco Center For The Book Holiday Fair. November 22, 2014. San Francisco. Free Admission.

There is no doubt we are saturated with holiday fairs that scream “uniquely SF.” We hear it so often it starts to sound like a cliché instead of an accurate description. I know because I write about so many of these fairs.

This is not a marketing ploy. We are lucky to live in a place teeming with creatives.  “Uniquely SF” covers a wide swath of originality and we have an abundance.

What sets the San Francisco Center for the Book Holiday Fair apart in its “only in SF-ness”  is its core theme of  letterpress printing, hand bookbinding, and abundant related arts. This unusual holiday fair has unique hand-crafted holiday gifts for sale including letterpress cards, prints and ephemera, journals and notebooks, artists’ books, paper, and unique handmade arts and crafts.

Intrigued? Check out the San Francisco Center for the Book Holiday Fair – this is a great opportunity to explore this hidden gem and pick-up unique holiday gifts.
