Renegade Mini Market Portland

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to have been accepted as a maker for the first ever Renegade Mini Market in Portland. I’d never attended Renegade before and wasn’t sure what to expect, but I had heard nothing but good things. The weekend turned out AWESOME. I heard from other makers that overall it was pretty slow for a Renegade show, but IMO that’s to be expected for their first appearance in Portland. My booth was in a great location and I’m very happy with my sales. I met so many nice people, it’s always lovely to hear praise after you’ve spent so much time and energy preparing for a show. I was in exceptional company – the roster was filled with so many talented makers. At the very end of the day on Sunday I was able to mill around gathering cards and inspiration. Here is a roundup of my favorites…

As you can see, I could have spent a small fortune on Jewelry! While I did not have much time for shopping, I was able to pick up a bottle of Egyptian Jasmine Luminous Body Oil by Herbivore Botanicals. It is *amazing*. The smell drives me crazy (in a good way) and I adore the silky smoothness of my skin after using it. Another thing I couldn’t live without is the Dash Bottle Vase in Pink by The Granite. I woke up on Monday thinking about it, so I knew I had to have it! It will look so cute in my studio, I’ll be sure to post pics after I receive it. Funny thing, turns out the nice ladies of The Granite have their studio in the North Coast Seed Building – the same building as my sister! When I was visiting Sabrina at her studio for Wolf Child last month she gave me a tour of the building. Crazy inspiring – the artist lofts and studios seriously made me want to move to Portland. Maybe one day…?
