LOS ANGELES LIBRARYOne of my favorite shops is the bookmobile LA Library mobile store ... a truck full of cards, totes, plush, games etc .. all book and library themed! Help support the library ... check out (get it??) their on-line store: https://www.lfla.org/store/
FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD!
SANTA ANA 4TH STREET MARKETA new find for me at this Patchwork show location .. the near by Santa Ana 4th Street Market. Super yummy food hall that opened in early 2015. (photo below by Anne Watson .. from Santa Ana 4th Street Market Facebook Page).
Best of all ... walking distance from the Patchwork show location.
Of course there are always lots of food choices at the Patchwork shows ... a number of food trucks and also individual vendors. But why stop eating there. Of course enjoy some on-site treats ... then work up more appetite with a lovely stroll to the food hall!
One of my all-time favorite Patchwork exhibitors ... the Torch S'mores cart ... has a full-time location at the 4th Street Market. Go there. Eat s'mores!!!
