Today's blog is dedicated to introducing and thanking all of the amazing sponsors who have been so supportive of the innagural Jackalope Arts & Craft Fair, our mission, and in helping us connect the community to our event.
Our sponsors are a diverse group of local and national businesses including both those directly involved in the handmade community and those who aren't but are excited to find ways to connect to it. So let's take a minute to celebrate the warm support of the handmade community and these Jackalope Sponsors!
YELP! Our first sponsor is one you most likely all know and use! Yelp is that app or website you use to find just about any kind of local business in just about any neighborhood! Yelp allows you to talk about and rate your experience with these local businesses and to share that with everyone. Yelp is connecting neighborhoods, businesses, and people in a unique way and we are thrilled to have them promote and attend the Jackalope Art & Craft Fair. You can find our Pasadena Fair in the Yelp event listings here: http://www.yelp.com/events/pasadena-jackalope-art-and-craft-fair
Unanimous Craft: "Like Yelp for the crafty community" Unanimous Craft is your one stop shop on finding out where you can sell your handmade goods. It will provide the where and how to go about selling your goods online, through brick and mortar stores, and craft shows! Look for their new and improved website coming next month. For now follow them on Facebook
Speaking of where to sell your handmade goods, the next two sponsors are brick and mortar boutiques in the Los Angeles area who carry unique, trendsetting, handmade goods all the time!
Los Angeles County Store: We have mentioned the LA County Store before since Owner, MaryAnne LoVerme is one of our jurors! Los Angeles County Store is the only shop dedicated exclusively to fine goods made in Los Angeles. From artisanal food to small housewares, apothecary to prints and stationary, it is a thoughtfully curated collection of beautifully crafted wares from across the county.
Leanna Lin's Wonderland: A playful jewelry studio/shop/art gallery inspired by modern + retro designs, where you can use your imagination to create your own beaded jewelry or shop the amazing work of carefully selected makers. People of all ages enjoy visiting this little gem in Eagle Rock, especially for the carefully curated art + pop-up events! Leanna also designs her own jewelry collection which you'll find at the Jackalope Art & Craft Fair!
While we are talking local, let's introduce our next sponsor, Christine Haynes! Also a member of our jury, Christine Haynes is helping to support and promote our Fair and our vendors. Christine Haynes is a Los Angeles-based sewing author, teacher, and pattern designer with her own line of sewing patterns, Christine Haynes Patterns, which are perfect for the vintage-loving modern seamstress.

Print Renegades: Responsible for our really rad Jackalope Arts Canvas tote bags, which will be available for sale at the Fair and online, is Print Renegades! They incite and embolden free thinking by crushing the walls of traditional print shops. They are environmentally aware and come from the artist background delivering the highest possible quality.

Wondering how you're gonna get to the Fair? Take the Metro! Thanks to this sponsor, you can take the train directly to the park and the first 50 people to present a Metro pass or Metro employee card to our info booth will receive a FREE Jackalope Arts canvas tote!
Thanks to our next sponsor, The Pasadena Humane Society, you may be taking home a brand new, four legged member of your family! We will have plenty of great vendors in the Fair selling pet supplies like collars, leashes & even doggy outfits so you can stock up for your new friend!
Last but not least, we love a good celebration and great, locally crafted beer makes for the perfect celebration… sponsoring our accepted vendor mixer is Angel City Brewery! Located in the Downtown LA Arts District, ACB supports local arts of all kinds.
