Children’s Christmas Market

Our table at the Portland Homeschool Children’s Holiday Market, where our family sold homemade gift tags, peppermint bark, and marshmallows.  It was a wonderful venue for the girls to show off their projects, to raise money for various charities, and to network with other Portland homeschoolers.   

We raised $28 dollars for charity and sold nearly everything we brought (prices were kept low, so all children could participate in the buying as well as the selling –  $1 each, or 3 for $2).  We met lots of other great homeschooling/unschooling families.  The girls came home with tummies full of brownies and a bag full of homecrafted goodies they bought from the other kids at the market – fairy wands, playdoh, postcards, stationery, bean bags, chocolate lollipops. 

Many thanks to Lyla, who put on the event!!  There are future events in the works, and we will definitely attend again!

  1. Great fun! We donated toys this year, but I don’t think DS really “got it” (he’s 2). Looking forward to next year and hoping to find something like this to participate in once we’re back in Seattle. If not, we’ll head your way! 🙂

  2. Was very bummed not to have made it this year – sounds like it was a great time! Perhaps it was divine providence I didn’t – I too would have left with a belly full of brownies….and marshmallows and peppermint bark, and… : )
