little winter: a handmade market | i love portland

Nov 7, 2010


I had the immense pleasure of spending my Sunday visiting Little Winter: a handmade market and chatting, laughing and crying with my dear friend Oona.

I had been excited and awaiting this day since I first caught wind of Little Winter on the lovely Abby Try Again awhile back.  I know that everything Abby gets hands on is magic, and couldn’t wait to see what she and Chelsea Fuss of Frolic would facilitate.

it was so nice to see you again, Abby!  Congrats to you & Chelsea both for a gorgeous success!  Portland misses you, lovely!

the gorgeous & so very talented Cori Kindred & her magical polaroid

the tiny houses from My House Party are absolutely delightful!!!

just a taste of some of the loveliness from Shanna Murray, Jordan Ferney of oh happy day, Lisa Golightly of the enchanting Kiki & Polly, Fieldguided, Abby Powell Thompson, Amanda Blake‘s lovely little painings, and Herriott Grace.  There was much more that I didn’t capture (you can go browse the vendor list around the list here)… I could have wandered around the room for many hours if it wasn’t so full of people wanting to do the same!!!

i finally got to meet the wonderful Nicole Null of Sacred Lotus photography in person.  I feel like we’re already old friends, Nicole… oh facebook ;o)

thanks, little winter, for being so pretty and inviting.

and thanks, oona, for a really sweet afternoon.  i heart you muchly.
