It's finally Spring! The pink trees are bursting with blossoms, the tulips are still vibrant, and the sun sometimes blinds us by peeking out from behind those tumultuous clouds! Now that we've crawled out of the dark holes we were hiding in all winter, we're feeling a bit crafty and inspired to start some new projects. Aren't you?
When we're looking for new supplies or seeking inspiration, Collage is always our first stop. They have an awesome assortment of art and craft supplies that follow the latest trends, plus tons of fun giftable items. It's so much better than the big box craft supply stores! Visit any one of their three convenient locations in Portland (NE Alberta St., SE Division, and Sellwood) and you'll find a very friendly, knowledgeable staff who will give you any guidance you might need. We LOVE Collage and we know you will too!
If craft supplies aren't your thing, or if you say you're not crafty (we won't believe you - we think everyone is crafty), you can still enjoy the gift items, blank journals, desk accessories and more that make up the new Collage Annex! For some serious eye candy, check out their Instagram @collageannex! You can see the Collage Annex in person at 1607 NE Alberta St., just down the block from their Alberta St. supply store.
Collage is locally-owned and has been a top level sponsor of our Art + Craft Markets for years. They are the folks behind our free DIY Area, where our attendees can take a break from all the shopping and get crafty themselves. We are always excited to see what project they plan to do at our show. This year, at our Spring Art + Craft Market on Saturday, May 20th, visitors can decorate a canvas backpack with rubber stamps and markers – perfect for carrying around crafty purchases!
