1  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / Re: Moving To Portland! on: May 02, 2008 12:22:33 PM
Oh my, y'all are so friendly!

To the person who mentioned moving away from LA because it's too superficial... I feel ya, except i live in Las Vegas right now, where for the exception of the Strip everything is just so darn dull it kills me. Relocated here from ultra-charming Savannah, Georgia (was born and raised in Puerto Rico) a year ago and I can't wait to leave. Hate it here. The only great plus is its abundant sunshine.

So, Portland is top of my list. I've been researching all morning (did so a few months ago, as well) about its neighborhoods, public transit and all sorts of fun things. Read that Portland's problem isn't the rain, but the overcast days. That troubles me a bit, but I think being in a city that seems so vibrant in many ways will definitely smooth that out (oh and it's relatively close to the Ocean...

So, I'm waiting to have $3000 saved up by the end of the Summer, pack up for a new life in Portland.


Mind you, I've never been there. I live DANGEROUSLY like that.    Grin

(But I do plan a short trip sometime in June/July)

I'm curious as to which craft fair you're referring to. I am a co-organizer of the Mutation Craft Fair, and we're having our next event on November 16-18 this year.

But if you miss the craft fair, it's no biggie! There are plenty crafty, not so touristy things to do in Sav. I just posted a few stores on another thread, so I'll just give you the link and you can read thru them: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=189547.0

If you can still get your hands on the Fall issue of Adorn, there is a nifty Travel Guide on awesome things to do in Savannah, including vintage clothing shopping and yummylicious cupcakes. Cheesy

Welcome to Savannah! I just recently relocated to Las Vegas, but lived in Sav for five years and oh how I miss it!

Yes, Wild Fibre (409 E liberty) is a fantastic store to shop for yarn. You can find a few supplies at Primary Art Supply (Broughton and Bull St), especially if you're a printmaker. Also Ex-Libris on Martin Luther King Blvd and Perry st is also pretty decent. They both cater to the art students so  you know you'll find good quality stuff. There is a small fabric shop called Fabrika on 140 Abercorn that has beautiful quality fabrics. While not a craft store, At Home (320 W broughton) has beautiful ribbons and a bunch of vintage cute knick knacks. The Beadstro, just two blocks east of At Home has awesome beads, as well as Bucci Beads a few minutes south at 9 W 40th st. There is a Joanns and Michaels on the commercial southside area of Savannah. All the stores I mentioned above are in the Historic and Victorian districts. It's been 5 months since I left, I wonder if new craft stores have opened!

Any other Savannah questions you have, don't hesitate to ask. I was very involved in the art and craft scene over there (I'm one of the co-organizers of the Mutation Craft fair[.com]). Stop by the craft fair, you'll meet some wonderful people! Also, every first friday of the month several local artists display their artwork on galleries all across town, especially on the Desoto Row/Starland District area (40th and Bull St where Bucci beads is), in the downtown area, and many galleries operated by the Savannah College of Art and Design. Go on November, because I'm sure there won't by much exhibitions on December (many people are out of town).

Okay, I could go on and on and on and on about Savannah. Gotta go back to work!

I like the color schemes. How do you fasten them in the back?

Hmmm won't the edges stab you a bit? Gosh knows how many times I got stabbed with the ends back when I did traditional film in college.

But these are mad neat! Good job Cheesy

oooo I would add two or three crazy beads around, too. Like nothing that will overempower it but... heck, just add the ribbons, the beads, more woodland creatures! The crazier, the better  Grin

Oh my, how exciting! I shall be moving to Vegas in approximately 24 days from Savannah, Georgia (although I'm from Puerto Rico). I'm 25, a recent graduate with a fancy schmancy photography degree (artofmegan, do contact me, I do fashion photography! Well I try to. But yeah I suck at hairstyling!). I run (or not anymore 'cause I'm moving) a craft fair called Mutation which I will be very sad to leave but who knows maybe I can get involved in something similar in Vegas.

Other than obsessively photographing miniatures and cupcakes, I am trying to start a little handbag + accessories business and eventually own a Handmade-Boutique (either online or brick 'n' mortar). There are so many crafts I would love to get my hands on.

Is there any crafty meets around there? Though I'm ultra excited to finally move (and road trip across America) I'm a bit afraid that I won't get to meet too many people and that I'd be all alone or something (it's just the nerves you always get prior to moving to a different environment, I'm sure I 'll make new friends).

But yeah, awesome! Hope to hear from y'all! (That's right, 'cause I'm bringing Y'allBack.)
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: A whole list of Consignment Stores - PM me if you know of anymore. on: July 24, 2006 07:49:00 AM
Lily queen you are fantastic for compiling this list and sharing it with us. I am in the process of also collecting links for actual brick and mortar shops around the US (and maybe beyond) as part of my business research. I looked around this forum looking for such a list, but couldn't find one. Maybe there is one?

Anyways thanks, that is so awesome. But somehow I feel that you are missing one big consignment shop. but I can't put my finger on it.....
