Let me count the ways: awesome weather, late sunsets, dining al fresco, flip flops, pedicures and weekend field trips!
An idea for this weekend?
How about the newly opened Crafted at the Port of Long Beach?!
It's an innovative and creative use of Warehouse No. 10, a cavernous wood-frame structure built by the Navy in World War II. This is just the beginning for them with many more to come.
(including warehouse no. 9)
It's no secret that we're BIG fans of many many (did I mention many?) of the vendors here. Such as..
1. Kelso Doesn’t Dance
|Love Kelsey's old school wire notebooks and shirt pillows!|
|The shelves ; she made herself!|
|decoupage and up-cycle!|
4. It's Me, Mary
|Ombre color and crochet bunting!|
|Tea plates for signage...|
|handbags and purses ... meriebabie|
|handmade cash register.... Wood Brain|
And I wouldn't want to forget the "Big Ass" fan that keeps the entire space cool and comfortable.
|Literally, that's the brand name of the ceiling fans; no joke!!! |
If you look carefully, they have a picture of the back of a donkey on the fan!
Crafted is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays.
PS... The USS Iowa was just dedicated as a museum @ the Port of Los Angeles. It's now open to the public and would make an awesome side trip while in San Pedro.
Fun fact: The USS Iowa is the only US battleship that has a bathtub. It was installed for President Franklin D. Roosevelt, along with an elevator to shuttle him between decks, while he sailed across the Atlantic in 1943 to meet with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet leader Josef Stalin.
Have a great weekend!!! xo, hallo jak
