MAKER FAIRE:It Is The BEST Event Imaginable!

Posted in Uncategorized by rewiringangel on May 24, 2010

Everything you can imagine and things you would never imagine making was there on display at this year’s Makers Faire.
If you can get behind paying the hefty parking fee (which is separate from the event entrance cost), since the Parking is not run by the venue. You can step into a magical world and see every variety of incredible constructions from a seed library to a walnut shell gas vapor run popcorn popper.
A seed library is different from a seed BANK or from a seed resource or a seed catalogue. A library is a place you can get seeds from local resources to use in your garden and then share. Lending out and returning like you do in a local library. It is not a place you go to look at seeds but get advice and help in picking the right seeds for your garden in your particular area. It is run entirely by donation and tireless efforts of the capable staff!
There is a make and craft section for every age. You want to know what it feels like to solder it is to make an led flashing button!
My vote for the Most creative concept is the walnut shells somehow transformed into walnut gas which produces electricity to power a popcorn popper.
Next year Make it to the Make Faire:
San Mateo at the County Event Center at
1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo CA 94403
