Artisanís market returns posted on 12/01/2019

Heidi Flanders, Recreation Director for the Mt. Hood Village RV Resort, hopes that December’s Mt. Hood Artisan’s Market can offer local artists a safe environment to show off their creativity and even serve as a launching pad for something more.

“We want to be the start up place,” Flanders said, adding that the event keeps vendor fees low.

“Even if you never thought (about selling your art), give it a try,” she said. “We just want people who didn’t think they could get into selling art or craft to try it out.”

The event, held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, in the Evergreen Room at the Mt. Hood Village RV Resort, 65000 E. Hwy. 26 in Welches, will also have more to show off than locally handcrafted jewelry, pottery and other art.

The event space just reopened in October following a remodel project that includes new French doors, floors, bathroom upgrades and much more.

“It’s beautiful,” Flanders said. “I’m super excited to show it off to the vendors and to the community.”

Flanders added that sometime in early 2020 she hopes to hold an open house for the space, seeing it as a good option for weddings and other events.

In the meantime, the Mt. Hood Artisan’s Market will enjoy the new amenities.

The Market, which started in the summer of 2018 and had a holiday version last year, is expected to include a couple new jewelry makers this year, along with photography, wood carvings and more.
