Here we are, mere days away from the event and we are moving full steam ahead. Each day closer to Friday & Saturday brings fresh energy and enthusiasm from business owners, shoppers, and both local and national news outlets. Check out our promotional video for appearances by Portland's First Lady Nancy Hales, plus several other notable locals and shop owners. We recommend viewing daily leading up to the event – and anytime you need a dose of local love – just make sure you have a tissue handy.
On a personal note, this has been an incredible experience for me- one of learning, loving, and working harder than I ever thought I would. I believe in this event so very much and am excited to hear how it goes for all of the businesses, shoppers, and supporters near and far. To all who have interacted with us, shared &/or liked our posts on social media, and given us news coverage, THANK YOU. Most of all, thanks to Portland for making this all possible. We all feel incredibly lucky to live in a community where there is such a strong independent business community. No matter where you live, we hope you'll consider supporting indie biz this holiday season (& all year long!).
