With the holidays approaching, there's one thing you can rely on: A steady deluge of craft sales happening from now through December. Not to sound too weary; these are actually some of my favorite places to shop for gifts, and friends and relatives from out of town really appreciate you sharing something from your region that they never would have known about. I'll try to post the info for as many of them as I can! Let's get the ball rolling with the Give Handmade Sale, happening November 28 at the Left Bank Annex (101 N Weidler) from 11 am-5 pm. In partnership with the Oregon Food Bank, 10% of artists' sales will go to the organization, so it's a good one to participate in. Not to mention a huge roster of vendors, including Amy Wing Designs, Betsey & Iya, Piper Ewan, and way to many more to list—check them all out here.
