Hello, friends! This past weekend was far less busy than usual. And since we are always on the go, it felt sort of strange not having to be at a certain place at a certain time. Believe me, I don’t always feel this way. When the chance to veg out and do thing presents itself, I’m usually all over it! But when you have a ‘free’ day and it so happens to be the same day that something awesome not too far away is also going to happen – you have to go!
That something awesome was the Portland Bazaar. After talking to many of the vendors, most of them running on little sleep from the day before, it was both awesome and crazy busy. Luckily we got their just as the doors opened on Sunday morning, before the craft events and book signings began. What did we find there? So many wonderful things created by local Portland-area artists. Things that make me happy and inspire me.
Love these vintage dresses from Yo Vintage. Both of these came home with us, plus an awesome leopard print blazer!
These gorgeous pinwheel necklaces are on my wishlist. So delicate and beautiful. Stone+Honey
Loved the Egg Press booth. Love the prints + their quirky cards.
Hanging paper mobiles from Frazier+Wing.
No, these were not available to purchase there =) Eleanor and her cousin Miss C. were our helpers for the day. Hopefully our trip, seeing all the different things you can make, will inspire them to pursue a creative job/endeavor in the future – I know it has inspired me.
