My treasures from Crafty Wonderland! Onesies by Pearly Grey and Antelope Baby; jewelry by Lucky LooLoo, the Weekend Store, and Made by Moxie; artwork by Berkley Illustration, Jill Bliss, and Bishop Lennon; candle by Bishop Lennon; and owl by Sew Many Cats.
Adjowah of the Weekend Store with her gorgeous typewriter key and watchface jewelry collection. I found my P pendant in her booth of loveliness!
Rachel and baby Twyla Belle at the Lucky LooLoo booth. I found my gold starburst earrings and a sparrow locket for a friend in her vintage-deluxe collection!
Stacie had her hand-sewn Sew Many Cats softies for sale—I found a charming felt owl with button eyes!
Ryan and Lucy of Berkley Illustration sold their Well-Dressed Animal print collection in their colorful booth. I found four prints to give to the new babies on my list!
Vanessa of Antelope Baby had her bright, colorful hand-screenprinted onesies, hoodies and t-shirts for babies for sale. I found a dachsund shirt and a onesie for Pearl to grow into!
Jen of Pearly Grey had her fantastic hospital take-out sets, bibs, and embellished clothes for babies. I chose two appliquéd onesies for Pearl, including a bigger version of the darling pear onesie we got for her in the first month after she was born!
Moxie of Made By Moxie came down from Seattle to sell her remarkable needle-felted jewelry and accessories, along with kits to try it yourself. I fell in love with a graphic-patterned blossom pendant on a delicate chain.
Jill Bliss and Bishop Lennon shared a booth to sell their artwork and collectibles. I found two art pieces and a decoupaged whale candle from Bishop and a sheet of hand-drawn ornaments from Jill.

I was so excited to check out Portland's own Crafty Wonderland Super Colossal Holiday Sale this weekend—but we woke up to snow, snow, and more snow, so my friends and I came up with a plan B and inched over on the bus. We made it in just under an hour and walked into a colorful, inviting room full of crafty delights. Here are some of my favorite things and the people who made each one!

For my baby, Pearl, I snapped up onesies by Pearly Grey and Antelope Baby. For myself and some ladies on my holiday list, I found jewelry by Lucky LooLoo, the Weekend Store, and Made by Moxie. For gifts to welcome new babies, I chose four pieces of Well Dressed Animals artwork by Berkley Illustration, and again for Pearl, some lovely pieces from Jill Bliss and Bishop Lennon. I just had to have a little whale candle by Bishop Lennon, and for a fellow crafter and owl-lover, I spotted this charming little softie by Sew Many Cats.

Take a look at the photos of each crafter with his or her work to see more details and plenty more of their fantastic handmade stuff! And each of these makers has a website, linked above, if you fall in love with anything yourself...

Did you make it to a local craft fair this season? Any favorite finds to share?
