Saturday, the winter Handmade Bazaar, Portland’s bi-annual buy/sell/trade handmade arts & crafts sale, takes place at Mississippi Studios (3939 N Mississippi) from 11am to 4pm.
The website does not provide a list of this weekends’ vendors, but you can get an idea of the type of artists and crafters that will be participating on the links page, which includes a list of previous Handmade Bazaar participants (the bazaars have been going strong since 2000!).
And on Sunday the Crafty Wonderland Super Colossal Holiday Sale takes place at the Convention Center (777 NE MLK Jr – exhibit hall D).
About a million vendors (well a couple hundred) will be setting up booths and tables, selling everything from reversible hats to quirky t-shirts, hand made jewelry to stationery, and plenty of bad art . . . I kid, I kid! But with over 200 vendors even if some of the stuff is . . . uh, interesting, some is bound to strike your fancy.
The sale’s hours are 11am to 7pm. Admission is free and the first 200 visitors get a free goodie bag!
