Bargain Hunting PDX 2014 Show!

Hey Bargain Hunters!

I am slowly but surely working on securing a new, close in NE Alberta venue location for a 2014 Bargain Hunting PDX Show!

More details to come. I’m hoping to have an application up in the next two to three weeks.

In the meantime, like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.

Exciting!
Thanks for your patience…

2013 Show

Hey Bargain Hunters!

We are sad and sorry to say that we will not be hosting a show this September 2013. There were a number of reasons that brought us to this conclusion and we are not able to share most of those reasons with you.

 

Not all is lost, though…we are busily rebranding BH PDX and hope to host a show in Early 2014.

 

Questions, concerns, suggestions are all welcome and encouraged. Please email us: bargainhuntingpdx@yahoo.com

Summertime…and the living is easy

Hey Bargain Hunting PDX fans, vendors, friends!
Its the middle of summer. Who’s thinking about the end of September? Gosh, that seems like a long way off. I mean, August is going to happen, Labor Day will happen, the kids go back to school. Whew! I know many other things may happen between now and then (vacations, hikes, camping trips, the county fair, school shopping) and maybe, with all those goings-on, you wonder what we here at BH pdx are up to.

Let’s see….
Chris is writing and submitting 2-3 press releases every weekday. We found a graphic designer to work on our ads for print & web, postcards and posters to distribute to local stores, bars, coffee shops so we can get the word out. We want this BH pdx to be the biggest, brightest, best BH pdx yet. We’re reviewing applications, even though the deadline hasn’t passed yet, because we’re really, really excited to see what kind of work you will be selling at our only show of 2013.

All that said, we’d LoVe to see an app from you, your crafty friends & family.

Enjoy the warm weather. Eat a peach. Drink a mojito. Smell a flower. Isn’t that what summer is all about?

A Note From The Organizers Of Bargain Hunting PDX -

Hello former vendors, shoppers and fans:

Happy New Year, Everyone!

We wanted to write you a note to let you know that there won’t be another Bargain Hunting sale this February. There are a few different reasons why, but the basic reason is that the three of us: Angie, Julz and Jen- are feeling that we’re done organizing this sale.

We’ve actually waffled a bit on this decision, because we love this sale and feel a sense of responsibility to the community to continue offering this event to artists and businesses as an income source and as an event for the greater, bargain-loving community.

The truth is though that we’ve all been losing steam over the last year or so, which has very little to do with the event itself and is really about the direction that the three of us are moving in our lives. We’re all feeling like we’d like to move on and work on new projects that are more in line with our current passions.

So after much consideration, we’ve decided it would be better to stop organizing Bargain Hunting now, rather than continue to run something that we no longer have the same passion for. The sale has been too good and we don’t want to run it half-way or sully the sale’s reputation.

So, is the sale going away forever? Well, that is really up to you guys. We will no longer be running the sale, but are interested and willing to sell some of the intellectual properties of this sale and at an affordable price: this would include, our mailing list, our contacts, the business name, the website, all of the information on the site and we’d even advise others on how to run the sale- answering questions and advising along the way and more.

This sale could be a great supplemental income source for anyone, but especially for an artist or business with product, because you can generate income by selling at the sale and you can also receive revenue as a sale organizer, as well. If there’s anyone out there, either a former vendor or shopper who is interested in purchasing all or parts of our intellectual properties, please let us know and then we’ll let you, the public, know what we find out.

Thank you for the awesome support over the years!
We appreciate you!

Wishing you a happy and healthy 2013!

xoxo,

Angie Heiney, Julz Nally and Jen Neitzel
