BigView – Making Stuff


Making Things
By Chris Murphy
Event Coverage by Brandi Brown

We love makers, we love doers and we love the amazing creations that come out of everyone of them. There is just something special about people who make things, build things, repair things and breathe life into regular objects and see the beauty of the possible. It is like going into a radio store and looking at the capacitors and transistors and seeing the possibility of a time machine. ModShop is a great way to celebrate these kinds of people and actually validate their creations by purchasing them. This is what makes the world go around. There will be over 60 different vendors at the 2016 ModShop. You can find all of these great makers all along J Street between 10th and 13th St. Galleries, restaurants, and street vendors will all be there for your enjoyment. You can get dinner and drinks at the many places along J and many of these places are also hosting crafters. There will be buskers on the corners entertaining and the main stage is presented by ModestoView at the corner of 10th and J.

Bring the family, your friends and your wallet so you can have the ultimate shop small experience. I plan on getting all of my holiday shopping done that one night. I am sure you can do it too. We have showcased just a few of the amazing makers here on these pages. One of my faves is the Reclaim Co from Escalon that turns old luggage and movie projector cases into boom boxes. You have to check it out. www.facebook.com/ReclaimRD
