Vintage Vendors this Sunday!


Hey all, I will be a vendor at this event this Sunday, March 29th! I plan to bring some vintage and collectible goodies- clothes, costume jewelry, maybe even some interesting curios or so… Also I will have my wearable art pieces to view and purchase. Come see what I have in person, and talk to me during the show about getting a custom piece made, and I’ll give you 10% off a custom order! Just remind me “we met at Vintage Vendors.”

A Last Stand at Last Thursday (Important!)

If you live in the Portland Metro area, you may have heard about the current conflict about Last Thursday on Alberta Street, the street-long, open market for arts and performers in the Alberta neighborhood. If not, go here for a recap.

These people are proposing a peaceful, creative community action as a response to the conflict over Last Thursday, which will be unregulated this month now that Friends of Last Thursday stepped down from office. I encourage you to support their action and keep the spirit of Portland’s creative community active and alive! Whether or not you directly contribute, these types of cultural institutions need our help and our efforts at preservation if we are to enjoy them for generations to come. Artists need to demonstrate to the City that we are their most valuable resource, not their opponents.
