We've been thinking about all the talented people in Portland, and pleased to realize how many of them we know. We count ourselves very fortunate. Jon Humphries has been a friend for years. He's a well known skateboard and action sports photographer with amazing portraits and a beautiful film reel. Recently he was asked by Color Magazine to do a story on folks in Portland. Our very own Tess Darrow made the roster! Check out the rest of the photos here.
A good time was had by all. Everyone went away happy and a special treat richer!
It was an even split. Exactly half of the gift makers chose paper as their medium. The other half (seen here) got their textile crafting on. From sewn garments (oh, Tess!), to felted items and a tiny embroidery portrait – they represented!
Tis the season! Last week we had one of our favorite days of the year – an afternoon party, production line holiday card signing and SECRET SANTA day at Egg Press HQ. From year to year the creative folks that we work with out-do themselves and come up with the most amazing gifts for $10 or under. Many are hand made with love. Here are some of this year's gems…
We are loading up our sleighs and looking forward to a weekend of holiday sales and merriment. Portlanders, don't miss your chance to support all of your favorite boutiques, jewelers, stationers and artisans during Give Good Gift and the Portland Bazaar. We can't wait and neither should you. Come see us!
