‘Her Campus’ craft sale promotes Cal Poly’s art scene
On Saturday, March 5, Her Campus Cal Poly hosted their annual craft sale. The sale was from noon – 3 p.m. in the backyard of a house on Hope Street.
Her Campus is an online magazine completely run by women.
Her Campus event coordinator and Instagram manager, Sahara Mofidi, was excited to
bring this event back for a second time.
“It’s mostly to like promote other vendors, and also it helps our name and like our club
because people know of the craft sale through Her Campus,” Mofidi said.
It started by three women at Harvard University and is now on college campuses across the nation.
“But I think it’s going really well,” Mofidi said. “I’m having to control myself and how
much money I’m spending here because there’s just so many talented vendors and people selling
stuff, and it’s really hard to resist.”
Vendors were selling clothes, homemade jewelry, crocheted items, paintings and more.
Visitors could also get henna by a local artist.
Creator of Broken Bone Jewelry, Leigh Ann Bardman, set up a booth at the craft sale
selling her earrings, necklaces, and other staple pieces.
“I’m hoping to connect with other artists,” Bardman said. “And I mean it would be nice
to sell some things, but I think more importantly it’s really important to experience Cal Poly
culture and I think the art scene here is a massive part of Cal Poly culture.”
Her Campus thought the event went so well last year they wanted to continue it with the
goal of promoting their name and small businesses.
“The sun’s out and like everybody’s having a good time talking, there’s good music, like
it’s hard to complain,” Bardman said.
