Oregon City Localopolis
Saturday, October 20, 2018
This will be my second year participating in this fun event! If you haven’t been to downtown Oregon City in a while, you’ll be surprised! There are many great little shops to browse and places to dine. Businesses on Main Street will be hosting artists, crafters, musicians, designers, photographers, painters, authors, jewelry makers in their businesses to help highlight what makes Downtown Oregon City thrive!
Chinchilla Whiskers will be inside Coin Corner & Hobbies, a family owned hobby, antique & collectibles store. Located at 215 7th St, this is one of my favorite shops in Oregon City! If you like antique and retro toys (Fisher-Price anyone?) this is the place for you!
Come stroll historic Main Street on this lovely autumn evening for this free event starting at 5th Street & Main. White Rabbit Gifts/Black Ink Coffee will provide a free walking map of every business to hit down Main Street!
Hope to see you there!
I have a couple shows lined up this summer!
Chinchilla Whiskers will be in downtown Oregon City on Saturday, July 14th from 11 am – 8 pm for the 9th Annual First City Celebration. I’ll be part of the Maker’s Row featuring local craftspeople sponsored by White Rabbit Gifts and Buy Local Oregon City!
Maker’s Row offers smaller vendors like me a chance to show off their amazing art and handmade items under a large tent!
This year’s event also features:
- Over 100 marketplace artisans, vendors, wineries, and distilleries.
- Live music all day on the Main Stage.
- Art, craft, and wine vendors in the marketplace.
- Kidzone sponsored by Portland General Electric with free crafts, activities, and live entertainment for kids all day.
On Sunday, August 19th, I’ll be at the Mom Made Market at Alpenrose Dairy in Dairyville. The show goes from 10 am – 4 pm. Last year, this was my first ever outdoor show and I had a great time!
The Mom Made Market’s main goal is to support moms in business. MMM offers mom-made shops a platform to sell their goods and services, network with one another, create new friendships, and come to meet their followers/supporters in person. In addition to hosting the markets, MMM is passionate about supporting mom-focused nonprofits.
