Whether you are looking to stock up on soap, find a unique gift, or just spend the day checking out the creativity of PNW artisans, these shows, festivals and markets are delightful places to discover hand made treasures. The Redmond Saturday Market is my first love and home base, nearly a festival on its own. Some of these long loved events have supported my craft for many years. Check back for new events, and remember that Paula's Soaps is always just an Email or phone call away.

Holiday Bazaar at Normandy Park

Saturday, December 3, 2022

This is a charming show in a lovely building in a stunning classic location. The Normandy Park Community Club has an amazing waterfront location, so take the time for a walk on the driftwood strewn beach.
The show itself is a venue for some mightily talented, very local area artisans and crafters not to be found at other events. Many have a local following so their creations sell quickly. It's well worth the time to get to Normandy Park, and there are interesting bazaars and shows in the area. Don't forget this one!

Mt Baker Home Tour and Arts & Crafts Fair

Mt Baker Home Tour and Arts & Crafts Fair

Saturday, December 3, 2022

This is my neighborhood show. Held every other year, it is avidly anticipated! The fabulous tour of classic Mt Baker homes is worth seeing, and the artisans who participate in the A & C portion of the show are mostly neighborhood artists don't usually participate in small craft shows; their creative inspirations can't be found elsewhere. Tea and cookies are served upstairs in the community center, a facility that truly embodies the concept of community, and provides a home for many local organizations and events.
