Crafty Wonderland Pop-Up Shop
Grand Opening Celebration!
Open November 9th through December 30th

802 SW 10th Ave. at SW Yamhill
(on the corner next to Finnegan's Toys and across from the Central Library)

We have been hard at work for the last month or so turning a dark, vacant store front into a crafty dream come true! The Crafty Wonderland Pop-Up shop features handmade work from almost 90 Portland area artists and crafters that we hand picked to create our dream store – a handmade paradise where shoppers can find amazing jewelry, accessories, clothing, housewares, art and so much more.

We are so thrilled that the City of Portland has given us the opportunity to offer downtown shoppers a chance to buy one of a kind handmade gifts seven days a week during the holiday season. After weeks of hard work we are finally ready to open our doors and hope you will come down and celebrate with us at one of our upcoming events!

Our soft opening will coincide with a kick off event that the City is holding to announce it's downtown holiday promotions on Tuesday, November 9th. We will be attending the city's event at noon then will head back up to our shop to open the doors and welcome our first shoppers! Come on down at about 1pm to check out what we have done and to get an early start on your holiday shopping!

A few days later on Saturday, November 13th we will be holding our big Grand Opening Celebration which includes the opening of our “Small Wonders” art show. We have an amazing selection of small and affordable art from about 35 Portland artists. All work is 6″ x 6″ or smaller and under $100 and can be bought right off the wall for your gift giving pleasure!

For a long time we have dreamed of opening a physical retail space full of the wonderful vendors we have met through our events so this is kind of a dream come true for us! We hope you will join us to celebrate this huge milestone and also to celebrate yet another way you can support local creative businesses!

Shop Local! Buy Handmade!
