Weekend Plans: The Portland Bazaar, Give Good Gift, and Crafty Wonderland Take Over Southeast

This weekend three of the city's largest annual holiday pop ups temporarily emerge with dozens (and dozens) of local vendors all within a half mile radius.

By Eden Dawn December 4, 2012

One thing to ease the stress of holiday shopping (other than a piping mug of Hot Buttered Rum) is access to a wide variety of perfect presents without having to run all over the city. This weekend the stars align with a trifecta of events including the Give Good Gift pop up shop, The Portland Bazaar and Crafty Wonderland giving harried shoppers a reprieve with dozens of Portland’s best local goods all within a half mile of each other.

Pick up your holiday cards from Crafty vendor Lark Press,

One word of advice: Be prepared to spend some time here. It’s not a pop in, pop out situation.
