Crafty Wonderland, Spring Edition

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Wed, Apr 16, 2014 at 11:14 AM

The holiday version of Crafty Wonderland is something everyone Portland resident should experience at least once. It is one of the hugest gatherings of (curated!) small-goods manufacturers from the region you're likely ever to see, and a ton of people hit it hard with their gift list. This also means that there can be crushing crowds of folks stumbling around in a panicked daze, overwhelmed by conundrums like whether grandma would prefer letterpress stationary or tea towels embroidered with baby owls. I call that fun, but if it's a little too intense for you, Crafty has also announced the date of its more-mellow spring edition, coming up Saturday, May 10 at the Convention Center (11 am-6 pm). They'll have a few extras going outside of the usual shopping, like DIY craft stations, a wedding-stuff section, and cat adoptions (shrewd). The full list of vendors is available here, in case you want to make a game plan.
