COVID-19 Virus Update

As you are likely aware, the Federal, state and local health authorities have recommended non-essential retail businesses to close. We intend to comply with this recommendation to do our part in the effort to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our local community, while protecting our vendors and customers.

Effective immediately, we will be postponing the OHSU Center for Developmental Health: Have A Heart For Mom Bazaar 2020. We will be carefully monitoring Federal, local and state news before deciding to reschedule the event. We will stay in contact via Facebook. Thank you for your understanding.

Upcoming 2020 Event Schedule:

Handmade NW, OHSU Center for Developmental Health: Have A Heart For Mom Bazaar!-May 5th, 6th and 7th.

Handmade NW, OHSU Center for Developmental Health: Holiday Bazaar!-November 17th, 18th, and 19th.

What is the Handmade Craft Movement?

Director Faythe Levine traveled to 15 cities (including Portland), interviewing 80 crafters. Handmade Nation, the first documentary film about the indie craft movement, premiered in Portland on April 4 - 5, 2009 at the Museum of Contemporary Craft.

You can see a little preview of the film over here and buy the DVD staring November 3rd, 2009 on the fabulous Buy Olympia website.
