    America's Largest Antique & Collectible Show

    America's Largest Antique & Collectible Show

    Despite the beautiful weather this weekend, we carved out a little indoor-time on Sunday to shop America’s Largest Antique & Collectible Show held at the the Portland Expo Center. This event happens several times a year and fills two to 3 huge buildings. This spring, the show was combined with a local artisan fair, so we got to see two shows for the price of one.

    From antique furniture to milk glass, mink coats, costume jewelry, tools and signage. Prints and coins, wooden and metal toys in different states of wear. There really is something for everyone at this show. We spent a good bit of time flipping through vintage serigraphs while wearing white gloves. Prices were actually quite reasonable for the most part, except the people selling old fruit crates for $65.

    Lots of older booth owners seemed to be parting with their old musty collections with a desperation in the air. Make no mistake though, some of these vendors were overheard driving hard bargains. We heard one burst into a dialogue of “this was cast in France by such and such artist before he died in 1819” and “this silk lampshade came over with my mother on a ship after the Titanic”. 

    While we finally departed with a just a modern-day wasp trap and a hot latte, the joy of this show was really just perusing the tables, catching the twinkle in the eye of your browsing neighbor who just found their little treasure, and literally walking down memory lane.

    It's been ten years of designing, collecting and producing Northwest-themed goods and apparel. We've accumulated a lot of odds and ends. Maybe a tee wasn't quite as of as soft we wanted, so we set them aside. Or a hat had a little wrinkle and we set that aside. Products we overbought, updated, or has a small blemish.

    Come take advantage of our lack of space to hold all this stuff! Plus, you know we're super nice and we'll prolly have a ton of give- aways...maybe beer. I'll check into that...

    We're just a few blocks north of the Nike Outlet, in the Heritage Building. There is parking lot in the back of the building. LBR is located the basement of the Heritage building. Come on down!

    November 30 & December 1
    10am - 4pm

    We get to see Oregon Tradeswomen and the great work they do because we work in the same building! Thank you, Oregon Tradeswomen, for promoting success for women in the trades through education, leadership, and mentorship.

    Oregon Tradeswomen was founded in 1989 on the principles that women deserve and can attain economic self-sufficiency by pursuing careers in the construction, manufacturing, mechanical, and utility trades while helping and encouraging the trades industry to build a diverse workforce.

    Twenty-nine years strong, Oregon Tradeswomen offers innovative trades-based training programs, trades awareness activities and technical assistance to organizations seeking to be inclusive of women in their trade occupations. They offer professional and leadership development for tradeswomen, promote the skilled trades as a highly desirable career path for women and girls, and have earned the respect and support of trades industry employers. Respect, excellence, equity, community, and empowerment are the values reflected in all their programs and services.

    Little Bay Root is proud to support their work. For a recent fundraiser auction, LBR donated LBR apparel and a few of Brian's metal sculptures (seen below). Glad you were all able to make something of it!
