Pop Up!

The hot thing in Portland for the holiday season is pop up- shops.  Since all of the economy stuff happened the landlords of empty store fronts donated spaces to local artists, crafters, and designers until the end of the year to encourage holiday shopping in downtown Portland. :) There are a total of 5 but here is one my favorites.


Bridget Larrabe of Art Scout opened Downtown Artistry which showcases local Portland artists   She wants this to be a interactive art community meeting place, so come bring your easel, knitting needs and friends.  \
 Let the Holiday Season begin! My issue is I buy for someone else then I buy something for me.  :)

My part of the world, the greater Cincinnati area, is seeing a greater number of pop-ups this year as well. It's good to see the empty store fronts filled if only for a little while. I like to check them out as there is always something interesting...
