Vendor Pin & Hem by Ruby Riewer has an interesting story.  She started a blog called the 52 dresses project where she creates a new dress each week for a year, and sells each dress online.  Very cool way to keep the creative juices flowing!  Check out her space at the Mississippi Flea!

Tonchi is a line of jumpsuits, rompers, and separates inspired by the 80’s.  They are made in Portland for fly girls everywhere.  Designer Sara Moskovitz will be selling her vibrant and figure flattering streetwear AND will have a water marbling manicure station.  How cool is that?!

AyMarieke Jewelry will be selling her beautiful jewlery pieces alongside Clever Nettle. 

Ay Marieke is a hand-crafted jewelry line based and manufactured in Portland.  Each
piece of jewelry is hand-cut and hand-formed using brass, silver and
copper.  Designer Marika Emerson enjoys examining old pieces of jewelry - Roma Gypsy, Victorian, 1950’s charm bracelets - and trying to figure out how to
incorporate elements of those styles drawing on my own metal-working
education.  Some pieces are very delicate, others quite bold - she tries
to consider all sensibilities in her designs but an obsession with old
things is often the common thread.

Her nostaligia-inspired collection can be found on her etsy at:

Vendor Anja Verdugo is a jack of all trades, an excellent photographer and blogger, seller of vintage clothing and maker of beautiful leather goods and her own line of clothing, Ann-ya.  She’ll be selling her wares along with jewelry designer Ay Marieke at this year’s edition of the Flea.

These photos should serve as an indicator of the extreme badass-ness of vendor Backtalk.

Vendor Julia Barbee works in a number of mediums, sculpture, jewelry, clothing, perfume, and will be selling a unique array of handmade items as well as some vintage.

A little about her work:

Eclectic found material is the inspiration and source for Julia Barbee, who has had a recycled clothing and accessories line in Portland, Oregon for 10 years.  Wanting to pair her love for making, with a historical, philosophical, and theoretical background, she went back to school, and in spring of 2011, and earned her Master of Fine Arts from California State University, Long Beach.  Since her degree work she has done performance pieces in New York, installation work in Tacoma, and participated in the Portland Mercury Fashion Show with belly dancers performing as pedestals for her crystallized sculptures. In December 2011, she opened her first open studio/shop in the 811 E Burnside building in Portland.  Her degree work was a process-based study using scent as the platform for sculptural performance, and it is this methodology that is shaping her collection of one-of-a-kind pieces.
