Maker Faire Austin Recap

I loaded in on Friday and set up my booth. I ran to Maru, which is this Korean owned and operated Japanese restaurant for one of their famous J-Bombs (and currently my favorite thing to eat in Austin) and then headed back to Maker Faire. Like last year on Friday night they had an evening for the makers with food and a few exhibits set up so we could enjoy a little of Maker Faire before it opened the next day. I got to spend some time eating tamales with Jennifer Ramos of Textile Fetish, Claire Chauvin of Poopscape and their families.

On Saturday Maker Faire opened at 10am and my booth was set up right next to the life-sized mousetrap game. To give you a sense of scale – instead of a marble, they used a bowling ball to launch it. All day I was surprised by friends visiting from Dallas, Houston & Austin at my booth. I came to Maker Faire by myself this year so I’m glad I was set up next to A Punkin Card Company and her entourage. They watched my booth for me when I needed to take a break. I was interviewed a bunch of times by a bunch of people, and hopefully I didn’t embarrass myself or the mafia. I got to meet a ton of photographers – they all started taking pictures at my booth. Here are some shots that John Knox from Austin took of my soap at Maker Faire.

Sunday – I bartered with a bunch of people for cardholders, scarves, pouches, cards, earrings, sold out of a couple of scents/styles of soap… and Kai and Winnie (who were running around interviewing people about a new show Make: Television) convinced me to stay another night, so I ended up eating sushi off of a boat at yet another Korean owned and operated place, Korea Garden. They told me about Flipside which is something like a regional Burning Man close to Austin. I am thinking about going next year.
