I was asked to be part of the Crafty Wonderland Pop Up Shop this holiday season, in Portland.
There are several pop up shops in downtown Portland this year.
It's a program that was started a couple of years ago by the city. The city of Portland approaches several local small business owners/entrepreneurs and asks them to fill some of the empty store fronts. This year they approached the ladies who run Crafty Wonderland to open a shop full of local artists and crafters. They asked me if I would like to participate and of course I said yes!
It's a really great program. Many local and independent artists and designers get to have their work featured in several shops and it's free. I love how Portland incorporated local artsy peeps with empty store fronts. It's such a great way to support local and handmade creatives.
anyhoo, if you live in the Portland area, and if you'd like to come to the grand opening, it's this Saturday. It starts at 12 and goes to 5 pm. The address is 802 SW 10th ave. I won't be able to make it, but you totally should!
This shop, along with the other shops, will only be open during the holiday season. So, be sure to stop in before the end of the New Year :)
