Thread at Union Market -- Day 1

Fun times at Thread's first day. Made it to Union Market (though it was tempting to stay inside and watch movies), and met some cool folks like Virginia (De Nada), Julien (Redeem) and Rebecca (Rebecca Atwood). There were some DC, NY, East Coast designers, even one from SF. It was a little smaller than I expected, but everyone was super nice and friendly. A good selection and a gorgeous intimate space. It would be awesome if this was up year round with rotating designers. The market part felt a bit like the Ferry Building. Paid almost $8 for a juice, but it was amazing. I think the jingle bell reindeer ornament was my favorite find. There are still two days left, with The Walkmen concert tomorrow night. Saturday (11-8) and Sunday (11-5)--definitely worth checking out. 1309 5th NE.
