The Portland Bazaar

Flutter and our sister store, Eden are participating this weekend in The Portland Bazaar!  The event takes place on Saturday and Sunday at The Sandbox Studio from 9 am - 6 pm.  There will be over 50 local vendors, food, craft classes, liquor tastings, book signings and plenty of shopping.  We're bringing down a lot of inventory from both shops as well as highlighting some local designers in our booth.  Here's a taste:

 Reconstructed vintage dresses from Ark Clothing.

 Chocolate truffles, wishbones, mustaches and lumps of coal from Neopolitan Chocolates.

 Terrariums and wreaths from our Mississippi neighbor Emerald Petals.
