Market Season starts... Finally!


Finally, I am starting to show at the local markets!  Very happy to be out and see my vendor friends and wonderful customers!  Here is my June schedule:
June 6, 13, and 20th - Hillsboro Downtown Farmers Market ( 9am to 1pm)
155 N 1st Ave, Hillsboro, OR, at a parking lot near Public Service Building

To minimize in-person cash exchange and credit card transaction, you can pre-order/pre-pay using an app, WhatsGood.  You can sign up at: http://sourcewhatsgood.com.  You can see awesome products from other vendors, too.  
If using this app is not your thing, you can still shop like usual.  I have hand sanitizer and/or disposable gloves at my booth, if you like.  

It is a challenging time for everyone, and safety is the number one priority.  Our market manager has been working hard to create safe environment for everyone.  There is more space between each booth, and vendors wear face masks.  I won't be able to shake hands but I would be smiling under my face mask :-)  Hope to see you there!

Staying home for now... Preparing for 2020 Market season




Just like many of us, I have been staying home this spring.  Both markets I participate ( Beaverton Art Court and Orenco Farmers Market) only have vendors who sell essential items at this point.  They are hoping to welcome art and craft vendors soon.  Meanwhile, I am building up my inventory :-)  Hopefully, I can see my market friends later this summer.
If you are looking for gift for someone, and would like to see my pottery, some pieces are available on my online Etsy shop:  www.etsy.com/shop/tohkiyapottery.
Or, email me at mami_yamada@hotmail.com, if you like to purchase pieces at my studio.
Looking forward to being at markets soon!  Please be safe out there!
