explore: crafty wonderland

I officially hit up my first handmade market in Portland- Crafty Wonderland.  I was actually supposed to be a vendor, but had some personal scheduling conflicts.  I'm glad I was still able to check it out because some vendors I really wanted to see were there!  To check out their full vendor list visit here.

I almost went alone since I only know a few people here & some of them had booths there, but since the powers of social media can create new friendships- I took the leap and met up with a cool new friend Andrea (that I had never met before!) and we had so much fun.  You know as an adult not only can it be hard to make new friends, but it can be scary too!  Thankfully it worked out because I found someone that loves thrifting, target, good food & coffee as much as I do =)

  1. Hey! That's my designer Jacqui's little bags (SLIDE SIDEWAYS) -- they do all the branding for my clients! Crazy coincidence :) So much fun, that place. I'd buy everything there. Literally, if I could.
