SHOP INDIE, MEET YETI

By: Shannon Bryan

PICNIC Holiday Sale

11 am-6 pm Sun, Dec 9, Portland Company Complex

You’re a unique thinker. You’re wonderfully nontraditional. And around the holidays, you like to be a stand-out gift giver who doesn’t resort to impersonal bestowments.

Maybe you used to make your own presents, but you can only give decoupage shoeboxes so many years in a row before the gift starts losing its oomph.

The indie DIY vendors at PICNIC can help. During Sunday’s PICNIC Holiday Sale at Portland Company Complex, crafters will be selling handmade clothing, jewelry, prints, accessories, bags, plush, stationery, photography, housewares, and fine art. Let’s not forget the vintage goods (a stocking full of Garbage Pail Kids is sure to make your loved one’s Christmas).

Coffee By Design, Verbena, and Otto Pizza will be on hand selling food and drinks to keep blood sugar levels steady. And photos with Santa? Not you. You’ll pose for your holiday portrait with the Yeti. He’s real. And he’s waiting.

The sale runs from 11 am-6 pm Sunday. Admission is free.
