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.
