Rise and shine, shoppers, and smell the (1950s Japanese, car-shaped) coffee!

Today’s vendor spotlight features the careful collection of Jennifer Collins of allsey and {dwinal}.  They’re actually two different things, so today we’re featuring {dwinal} and all it’s vintage glory.

JC’s got an extensive collection of house-shaped purses that are just about the sweetest things you can hope to find at a holiday sale.  I saw a Big Thaw customer walking away with a darling one last April, but no worries – there are still some left!  Here is a Big Chill favorite:

Jennifer knows it’s time to get ready for the Big Chill when there’s a layer of snow covering everything, which I’m personally hoping waits until Christmas Eve or thereabouts… but wouldn’t it be romantic if the snow was falling outside Mayo Street on December 3rd?  Mmm… pretty winter craft fair!

Just so that we’re not ending on a ‘thinking about layers of snow’ note, check out this vintage, tooled leather bag from {dwinal} that could totally be the feature on our next poster:

Wahoo!!  Applications for the 2011 Big Chill to be held on Saturday, December 3rd from 10am to 4pm (9-5 for vendors/set up time) are finally here!  Please download the .PDF (below) and snail mail it to the address listed on the second page of the application.

What’s new this winter for The Big Chill?  Well, other than the entire fair itself, we’ll be selecting vendors with a wide range of goods for all walks of life:  fashion-savvy ladies, vintage for dudes, moms and dads who love handmade, wellness afficionados, oh, the list goes on!  We’re also reducing the number of vendor spaces my a smidgen as the winter fair will mean more puffy coats and less room in the walkways – we just want to be safe!

Applications will be open from Saturday, October 1st through Monday, October 31st.  Please contact thebigthawportland at gmail dot com if you have any questions, comments, or know a business that would like to sponsor our event!
