Little Winter pdx

On Saturday morning, Anja and I went to The Cleaners at The Ace Hotel downtown to check out the goods at Little Winter PDX. Little Winter is a market stocked full of handmade crafts and arts. We showed up right around the time it opened, and were very pleasantly surprise to see the place packed with people shopping! I love seeing people show up and support local and independent designers and artists.
The Market was so beautifully curated and decorated. Everywhere I looked, there was somtething to catch my eye.




I love these little houses stuffed with air plants from My House Party. I bought this tiny little ornament for our Christmas tree, to celebrate being in our little home. One thing I love about independent sellers is that even the packaging is adorable!


Cori Kindred's table was fully of lovely woodsy displays and the prettiest scissors. I didn't get to meet Cori, but I did talk with her friend Jen, from the super cute blog Scissors Paper Glue and Etsy shop Vintage Scissors for a while.



Anja and I both bought this necklace from Mossière. It's a chunk of Fool's Gold on a delicate little chain. I was also very tempted to buy this gorgeous calendar, but I decided to spread my few bucks amongst other sellers, too.

I really enjoyed meeting and talking with Myra of Twig & Honey. As if her headpieces and jewelry weren't cute enough, she is such a sweetheart, and we ended up chatting for quite a bit. I purchased a travel size of her new scent, RumpledCake to take home and try out. You know how scents are always a little different on you than in the bottle? I wanted to make sure I liked it, and that Josh would, too. It turns out, I couldn't stop smelling myself after I put this on! I know scents are a very personal thing, but I feel like RumpledCake is such a universally appealing scent. And the best part: the ingredients! I think you guys know by now that I'm super picky about artificial ingredients in my food, but I'm also that way in my toiletries, which is why I basically have none. I hadn't been able to find a natural, non paraben, non preservative scent that I liked before this. Now, I just need to save up my pennies to buy a regular sized bottle...


Harriot Grace offered some great feather kitchen linens, and a feather cookie-cutter that I debated getting. I am still thinking about it, I might have to go back and get it! How awesome would it be to receive a plate of cookies shaped like feathers?



These are just a few of the many many sellers that were at the Market. If you're in Portland, I very strongly recommend checking the sale out. They'll be open Sunday from 11am-5pm at The Cleaners, 403 SW 10th Street Portland.

    I was also at the event today, but didn't get a chance to fully check out Myra's table, so I might be heading back tomorrow. I am intrigued by your description of Rumpled Cake.
