And we’re back…
I ended up taking an extra week off than I originally planned to do some 2015 planning, some sewing, and generally taking it easy after the hectic holiday season.
So the Holiday Market is over. Thank you to everyone that made it a success. I couldn’t have done it without the support of Mary, Wes, the craft night gals (men are welcome too), our sponsors, and definitely my vendors.
Everyone who stopped by was amazing. Especially those of you that came out in the rain on Saturday. Man was that a downpour.
You can see more photos on Facebook and also if you scroll back through my Instagram. I took a ton of photos during the market.
I can’t believe that this is here already. Tomorrow and Sunday is my Holiday Market that I’ve basically spent all of the past few months focused on to the exclusion of just about everything else.
Today, I will be prepping for the event: picking up tables, decorating, marking spaces for vendors, and handling all of the millions of last minute things I haven’t even thought of yet. You can follow along on Instagram and Twitter. I’ll be posting lots of photos of all of that. #RCCHolidayMarket to see it all.
I’m really looking forward to this, although it’s a little like letting your child go. It’s time.
Dec 20th & 21st
10am – 5pm
First 50 shoppers get swag bags filled with goodies. So come early to get those!
26 NW 23rd Place (at Seattle Coffee Gear’s Portland Location)
Happy First Day of December! That’s a thing, right? Craft Night, as you know, is the 3rd Tuesday of the month. This month that falls on December 16th. We’re at my favorite japanese tea house again this month and we’ll be making garlands. Or at least, I’ll be making garlands, and I’d love your help.
My Holiday Market is coming up surprisingly fast, and it would be a great help if you’d help me make the garlands to decorate the event. If you’d rather work on your own project, that’s fine! Crafting together is really the name of the game even if we’re all working on different things.
December Craft Night:
December 16th at 6pm
At Behind the Museum Cafe
I can’t believe how fast things are moving. Thanksgiving is this week and next week is December already. I may have mentioned that I’m running a holiday market on December 20th & 21st. I’d love for you to be there too.
So I’ve got a few ways you can keep up with what’s happening.
I’ve got a Facebook Event where I’ll be posting info about vendors and photos of all the awesome things I receive for the swag bags.
Also, I’m doing weekly emails with vendor spotlights and coupons good at the event. If you want to get on my mailing list, you can sign up here.
You may have seen the tab at the top of the site that recently showed up: “Holiday Market“. If you click on it, you’ll find information about the upcoming Holiday Market. I’ll be talking a lot about it in the next month and half.
Today I want to reach out to all you crafty people in the Portland Metro. I’m looking for vendors. We have some confirmed already and the space is limited. But we have early bird pricing through November 18th. So you should get on that.
Check out the vendor page and download an application if you’re interested. I’m also happy to answer any questions you may have. Email or leave a comment!
