Celebrate San Francisco’s vibrant artistic communities, including those in the Tenderloin and Union Square, at a special pop-up event held by SF Etsy and The Marker Hotel on Thursday, May 2, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., coinciding with the popular First Thursday Art Walk that occurs weekly in the Lower Polk and Tenderloin areas. Enjoy complimentary admission as well as wine and snacks from the hotel’s noted Tratto restaurant while exploring a range of the area’s artists, jewelry makers, cosmetic lines, knitwear and more.
Selected directly by the SF Etsy Street Team based on uniqueness and quality of work – and timed for Mother’s Day shopping – highlights of the Etsy Marketplace at The Marker include: vibrant artwork from Jennifer Clifford that takes its cues from collage, colorful textiles and wallpapers; the new beauty line from Christina Choi Cosmetics created for a wide range of skin tones and eye shapes to expertly define facial features; handcrafted and custom jewelry from Covet that is inspired by designer and owner Adrienne Wiley’s travels; and beautiful handmade cashmere knit goods from Cashmere Treats, made from yarn that is kettle dyed in their own studio.
Additionally, Christina Choi herself will also provide mini makeovers featuring her new beauty line. Each makeover will be 20 minutes long and complimentary via the patronage of the SF Etsy Street Team. Register via Eventbrite for the makeover to reserve your spot. The marketplace itself is complimentary and not ticketed.
SF Etsy partnered with the newly renovated Marker for this special event due to the property’s commitment to local artists, including its rotating art exhibit curated by Jacqueline McGee and SFMOMA Artists Gallery. SF Etsy is a collection of more than 2,200 Esty sellers in the San Francisco Bay Area, and strives to support its community through hosting local shows and events.
Following the event, guests are invited to experience the hotel’s bar-driven modern Italian Tratto restaurant. A complimentary glass of wine is included with a purchase of an appetizer selected from the new spring menu featuring Riverence red trout; “Stracotto” braised pot roast; and Strained ricotta with shaved rhubarb and pistachio dust; among other specialties.
