Spending a day at Crafty Wonderland!

Last Sunday my Sister, Ruari, and I headed over to Crafty Wonderland. Crafty Wonderland is Portland’s indie/craft market! I sold some of my crowns at this show back when I was first pregnant. There are some amazing artists there!

Ruari and I played with the moustaches at Turtle Monkey Bug. So fun!

The show was not as exciting for Ruari as it was for me. 🙂

There were MANY sellers that I just loved! It would take me hours to list all of them… So, I’ll just list a couple of my faves:

Turtle Monkey Bug: Cute Dolls, Moustaches, and more!

{Turtle Monkey Bug}

Bella Sisters: Awesome repurposed jackets! I’ve been wanting one of these for a couple years now!

{Bella Sisters}

Slide Sideways: Awesome prints!

Rachel Austin: Painting and other lovelies!

And, yes… I met Mark Montano! I was a total nerd and asked if I could get a photo with him. He was so nice to me and said sure… even though I’m sure he thought I was crazy! 😉

{Yeah, that’s right! I met him! Mr. Mark Montano!}

If you don’t know who he is… where have you been? Kidding. He is Mark Montano: TV Host, Author, Designer, and Artist. You may have seen him on While you were out or 10 years Younger on TLC. He also has two AWESOME books out. The Big Ass Book of Crafts and his newest book, The Big Ass Book of Home Decor. I want them!

    This looks amazing! Is it a year-round market or just a once a year event? I need to get down there and see it for myself!PS – I love that you are in Portland. Portland is my favorite place in the whole world. I was born there and lived there until I went off to college. 🙂
