Testimonials

It was grande to meet you on Sunday. Thanks again for all of your hard work in putting the event together. I think SFFAMA's support of local artists is genuine and sincere in their promotion of the entrepreneur spirit. I must add everyone on the SFFAMA team were very helpful and very courteous and did their best to accommodate all vendors. I liked the placement of those exquisite hats as guests entered the space and the way in which they were displayed in almost a vertical set up leading into the space.

Brief Space is a great venue. There is a lot of foot traffic, it's centrally located in SF, and the space itself is beautiful.

It is so wonderful that you bring so many people together with your events. Tonight’s panel was great and I personally learned so much from what other panel members had to say. Also made a few unexpected connections. Look forward to more events.

It was great fun, very inspiring and an wonderful opportunity to be among fellow artists and designers. For us, it was an excellent opportunity to meet bloggers and people from the press. The booth fee was reasonable and there was plenty of room.


Thanks a lot to ALL the volunteers. Everyone was so kind and helpful. Especially the guy who came and adjusted the lights and those who helped us later to break down and take stuff to the car. We really appreciate it. The DJ was great. Thanks for the free wine.


Overall, inspite of the rainy day, we had fun. Owen Geronimo, you work very hard and your passion for this industry shows through. Glad to have met you and be part of the SFFAMA family! Keep it up and keep in touch.

Considering the rain, I think it was a great turnout. It was great that you had girls downstairs handing out flyers. We are totally up to doing the show again.

I just wanted to take a moment to send a personal THANK YOU for all your hard work in organizing at promoting yesterday's event. You and your staff / volunteers did a stellar job! My authentic (TimeAndAgainFashions) vintage clothing and accessories were VERY well received, and I look forward to participating in future shows. Positive vibe, artist friendly! Promoter worked hard to market the event! THANK YOU!!!

Over all I thought the event was extremely professionally executed and I especially liked the inclusion of fashion bloggers. I would be extremely interested in other events.


As a vendor I love all the press I can get and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. And the bloggers need something to blog about so its a win-win for all.
