Re:Make Day 2: The Shed (Part 2 of 3)

Now that you’ve caught up on all the action from Re:Make’s Day One, it’s time to recap the best of Day Two! Day two was one serious DIY party.

We had a whole bunch of projects for attendees to make and take home (we called our group of DIY stations “The Shed”) and also had nearly 100 (!) artisans selling their beautiful wares (which we called “The Shop” and which will be discussed in depth in our next Re:Make post).

The whole day was FREE for all of the San Francisco general public! There’s no way we could have pulled this off without the support from all of our partners. Check out the incredible creativity that they brought with them below.

Wilton had cupcakes galore at their station! After DIY decorating lessons, guests could try out different frosting techniques on their own cupcakes, and then chow down on their masterpieces. Oh and Wilton even brought an Instagram photo booth with them — you’ll notice there are a LOT of cupcakes if you search for #remake2013 there. Warning: it may make you hungry.

Our friends at Cricut manned the welcome tables. Guests got to create their own DIY name tags using the state of the art Cricut machine that lets you emboss and die cut all kinds of shapes. It doesn’t get more personal than that.

One of our favorite publishers, Chronicle Books, brought tons of books based on creativity AND served up some delicious baked goods. How cute is their flag banner?

Everyone got the chance to DIY some studded wrap bracelets at the Velcro Brand station. It was so cool seeing such a huge crowd over there!

Wait, first of all, what is going on with that dude’s beard!? We’re obsessing over it. I guess it’s kind of perfect for Four Barrel, the infamous San Francisco coffee brand that came to serve up the caffeine.

If you thought scrapbooking was only for baby boomers, then think again. Our attendees were getting crafty with K&Company SMASH and making their own Smash journals, the newer, cooler way to record your memories. There were over a thousand journals made!

Here’s a peek at our rad Re:Charge station which was stocked with smartphone chargers, KIND bars, candy, Pretzel Crisps, S’well water bottles, and more.

We love this shot of The Orange Chef team getting goofy. Every kitchen should be this much fun!

Why buy when you can DIY? Re:Make guests got to take part in some DIY purse action at the Beacon Adhesives booth. Clutch! (Get it?)

We started serving wine from The Naked Grape as soon as the doors opened. Because at Re:Make, it’s okay to grab a glass of chardonnay before noon. #ourrules #mustbe21

Benefit Cosmetics brought the cutest props for the Giggle & Riot photo booth. And of course, the backdrop was chevron. Will it ever go out of style? We say no.

In case you didn’t know, OXO containers can hold more than LEGOs. These pop-up containers are so clever. And how awesome is their booth display? Are those Pez dispensers? Am I back in the 90s?

Attendees got to play around with Sugru, too. Interested in Sugru-hacking your own items? Good news! Sugru is offering 20% off to the Brit + Co. community. Go to sugru.com and enter the promo code “sugrulovesbrit” to redeem the offer through October 18th.



Finally, check out this Brit + Co. sign made completely out of LEGOs! Some awesome folks from the LEGO community came to make this for us. It is basically the coolest thing ever. We’re obsessed and it’s a great addition to our new office! Did we mention we’re hiring?

A big thank you to all of our sponsors who helped make Re:Make a success! Stay tuned for a recap of our day two artisan showcase.
