Crafty Wonderland

Way back in 2006 I attended a monthly craft show in a bar. On a Sunday afternoon. It was great. Now the same show, Crafty Wonderland, happens twice a year at the convention center. It seems we love our crafts in Portland. The Super Colossal Spring Show was last weekend and I found some yummy stuff! Here are a few of my favorites:

Jen Kirk‘s partner challenged her to recreate the area’s bridges through crochet.  She did a good job! And she sells the patterns, too.

Green Grin had a lot of fun mittens and some amazing animals.

In the very first minute I found and bought a great purse at Appetite.

And at every craft show I attend I find my favorite guy. Pepe Moscoso. He takes amazing photos of very dilapidated places, paints in sweet characters and then collage them onto old slabs of wood.pepe-moscosoPepe Moscoso

I love vintage stuff. This booth, called Mod Radio, was full of vintage radios rebuilt to use with today’s electronic devices.  So clever.mod-clockmod-radio-piece

Crafty Wonderland was fun.  I can’t wait for the Winter edition.
