Sept 6-9: Skill Exchange @ StoreFrontLab

Join us next week when we welcome Skill Exchange for three days of workshops offering demonstrations, conversations and tastings to teach, share and learn self-reliance skills. 

Skill Exchange at StoreFrontLab kicks off on Thursday, September 6, with a launch party, from 6-9:00pm. Stop by for live skill demonstrations, music, food, drinks and celebration.


The three days of low-cost workshops begin Friday, September 7, and feature Bay Area chefs, artisans and entrepreneurs on topics ranging from urban farming and seasonal cooking to building, mending and making. Space is limited, so be sure to register here.

Generous support provided by Hello! Lucky and Ritual Coffee Roasters.




Thanks, Post-Car Travel Agency!

We were so inspired by Post-Car Travel Agency's pop-up stop at StoreFrontLab that we decided to take our own car-free holiday to the San Juan Islands. We only wish we had ordered our new Swift Industries gear in time. Thanks, again, Kristen, Kelly, and Martina!
