Late last week we joyfully announced that our first Etsy Hearts Handmade local craft fair event would be held in Portland, Oregon this December. Unfortunately, arrangements with our venue have fallen through rather rapidly this week. In light of that, we regret to say that we will not be hosting Etsy Hearts Portland on December 8. Plans for the event have been canceled. (We’re just as disappointed as you are about it. Sorry, everyone.)
We want to send big love to Leah Pellegrini and Ryan McAbery for all the hard work and time they put into helping us these past few months on this project. These two ladies truly embody the Spirit of Etsy in many ways, and we are bummed by the current turn of events. We have lots of love for the PDXetsy team and hope we can work together again sometime in the future.
There is good news! We’re already thinking about big ideas for Etsy Hearts Handmade shows in 2008. We’ll keep you posted in The Storque on further developments as we finalize details of future craft fair events.
