Look at that. I figured out how to put a picture on here!
You should come to this show!

Buy local handmade for the holidays

We are very fortunate in Portland to have a wealth of artisans. People who put their passion into handmade goods. This year, instead of heading to a chain store and purchasing factory items from places like China, look to your very own neighbors. Put your money into the community by supporting people around you. There are many craft fairs and Christmas bazaars this time of year and each one has a host of crafters and artists for you to support. Think about the kind of love that goes into a handmade scarf or hat! That pair of much better when you buy them handmade!
You can find my handmade items this Sunday at the Handmade NW Formail Holiday Artisans Fair at the Chelsea Ballroom!
1510 SE 9th Portland Or 97214
There will even be live music and a gift wrapping table!
