The creative forces behind Design*Sponge, Wood & Faulk and Antler & Co have joined together with over 50 local Portland businesses, eateries and makers to present The Portland Bazaar – a two day event in NE Portland just in time for not-so-last-minute holiday shopping.

Eden and our sister store Flutter are incredibly excited to be participating in this event and thought we’d share some of what you’ll see from other vendors at the Bazaar…

House Spirits Distillery

Nice Work

Satsuma Press

Bridge & Burn

Frazier & Wing

Beckel Canvas

Oh My Cavalier!

Maak Soap Lab

and of course, Eden and Flutter!

…plus many, many more!  For a full list of vendors and more information about the vendors shown here, visit The Portland Bazaar website.  We’ll be holding down our booth with the company of Brehan Todd and Jesseca McCloskey, two of Eden’s jewelry designers (we’re extra excited that Marisa Howard of Seaworthy will be at the Bazaar as well.)

Besides shopping, there will also be multiple craft classes, liquor tastings, book signings, food, demos and live music over the course of both days – get a list of the incredible itinerary here!  With so many happenings, things to do, stuff to eat, and an abundance of local talent, we don’t feel biased in saying this is probably gonna be the best holiday shopping event in Portland this season.  Hope to see you there!

As anyone who attempts to pass by the Rose Quarter or across the Burnside Bridge will indubitably notice, today marks the Grand Floral Parade and the coronation of the Portland Rose Festival Queen.

A visit to the Rose Garden last week and announcements promoting today’s Festival inspired us to dig up some images of past festivals, floats and Rose Queens.  Although perhaps some of the grandeur of these early celebrations has vanished, those of us who love old things and get nostalgic over the past are heartened by the idea that this tradition is still a strong and important one for our city.

One can hardly walk down any Portland city street this time of year without encountering a rose bush in bloom or about to flower and today’s festivities guarantee your chances of encountering the blossoms our city is known for are that much higher.

For those feeling floral on this balmy June day, Eden offers a subtler way to announce an affection for the City of Roses.  Here is an offering of some of our favorite Rose Festival memorabilia and a few lovely rose-based scents from our garden.
