Now Accepting Applications for the

2014 Super Colossal

Spring Sale!!!

Crafty Wonderland Super Colossal Spring Sale!
Saturday, May 10th

at the Oregon Convention Center
 Exhibit Hall D
777 NE MLK Jr. Blvd.
Portland, OR 97232

Free Admission! All Ages!

We’re super excited to bring back for a second year…
Wedding Wonderland!

Wedding Wonderland is a grouping of vendors within the Super Colossal Spring Sale who make items that would be great for weddings! Accepted vendors will have the option of being located in the Wedding Wonderland row(s) or not. These rows will be connected to the rest of the craft fair so shoppers can flow through the room as they normally would, but having the wedding goods grouped together will make it easier on the bridal shoppers to find what they’re looking for!

Ideas of what would fit well in that area include, but are not limited to: dresses, nice men’s clothing and accessories, terrariums and centerpieces, pretty hair accessories, sparkly jewelry, card makers who love to do custom invitations, paper decorations, sweet treats, and jewelry, body care, and small items that would make nice bridal party gifts, etc!



Our application system is entirely digital!
Follow the link above to the apply page on our website to answer any and all questions regarding the sale and the application process.

After you read through all the FAQs on the APPLY page you can follow the link to the digital application at the bottom of the page. 

You should also check out our list of handy application tips here! 

Don’t wait too long!
Applications are due February 23rd!
