Friday night parties & December vendor opportunity!

Please bookmark our new and super awesome Beaumont Business Association website at www.beaumontbba.com!

Although this blog has been a great forum, it was only temporary - so as of January 1, 2011 the new website will be your go-to place for everything about BBA events, vendor opportunities through the BBA, Fremont Fest & our neighborhood!




Hi, Everyone! BBA Vendor girl here...

Just checking in - we have a vendor opportunity coming up in December, and a wonderful 2nd Friday planned for this week!

Also, I wanted to let everyone know that Paperjam Press is celebrating its first anniversary, and in honor of that, they are having a party!  This Friday ~ November 12th from 5 - 9 pm! Not only will there be birthday cake, tasty snacks, champagne & drinks, BUT, they are doing discounts AND 20% off all orders placed that night - so if you have any postcards or business cards that need to be printed, this is a great time to get those done! I had my business cards printed by Paperjam, and they do a great job on color matching for art cards.

2nd Friday is happening up and down Fremont this Friday night and this month many shops are having events inside, so if you're looking for some inexpensive entertainment, come out and join us! 

ShopAdorn is having a trunk show, BottlesNW is hosting a special beer event, Amenity Shoes is having a sale, and Found will also be open late!

Now, here's the info about the December event on Friday, December 10th from 5 - 9 pm. Info below. If you or some crafty person you know is looking for a venue to sell their handmade goods, let me know! Our upcoming Winter Wonderland / Fremont Festival of Lights was featured in the Handmade in Portland "Portland Holiday Craft Show Roundup!" Wahoo!

"Our Fremont Festival of Lights event will be held on Friday, December 10th, 5-9 pm. Our local Portland Fire Dept will be escorting Santa on top of one of their fire engines! As Santa passes down the street the lights will be lit in the trees. When he arrives he will disembark to his “Winter Wonderland Festival Tent” so that kids of all ages can visit and have photos taken with Santa. Up and down the street, there will be signs of Christmas everywhere!

Carolers from the Presbyterian Church of Laurelhurst will be singing to herald the arrival of the holidays. The Dickens Carolers and bagpipe players are also slated to perform. Friday & Saturday will also be our Shop Hop! We are encouraging all the shops to stay open late and invite shoppers into their stores with hot chocolate, cookies and other delights; and don’t forget to stop by Soluna Grill to get your bag of Chestnuts roasted on the open fire! Vendors are invited to our vendor pod next to Santa’s tent where they can sell their items. The BBA is sponsoring a Holiday Window Decorating Contest as well…"

Vendor Details:
the Winter Wonderland Vendor Tent will be located at the corner of 41st and Fremont 
(the main intersection) in the courtyard of Foot Traffic
Vendor space in the tent is $15 per 4 x 8 (bring your own table & chairs)
We will have a 20 x 40 ft tent with heaters, but space is limited!
If you would like to bring your own 10 x 10 popup tent, you may do so 
and set up along side the large tent
10 x 10 spaces are $30

Depending on how much interest we have for Saturday, we may be able to extend the vendor opportunity to Saturday as well. For now, however, it is set up for Friday night, December 10 from 5 - 9 pm. Set up will begin at 4 pm. If you require additional set up time, please let me know.

Thanks so much! If you know of anyone else who might like to know about the event, then please pass this along to them. I hope this finds all of you out there happy, healthy & staying warm as our winter weather approaches!
