Posts Tagged ‘Portland’

Portland was by far my favorite stop on the westward journey. In addition to its mossy streets and just about mossy everything, Portland harbored a great love for crafting. You can see why I fell in love with the misty city.

Portland Saturday Market

Every Saturday and Sunday, the people of Portland as well as us tourists head down to the Waterfront for some local crafts and local grub. With the smell of Moondrops’ roasted nuts in the air, I roamed the artists’ stalls for hours.  In response to my grumbling belly, I then feasted on some fish and chips, and I highly recommend that you do the same. Check it out.


Museum of Contemporary Craft

I kid you not with this one. In addition to exhibitions focusing on past and traditional craft, the Museum also has a section focused on D.I.Y. projects. So get crafting and maybe one day your weekend project will be worthy of a spot in a museum!
