BikeCraft — a two-day bazaar of bike-inspired crafts, gifts, and fun — is less than a month away (December 3-4). The organizers have lots of cool stuff planned (more on that later); but the heart of the event is the vendors. In order to whet your appetite and introduce you to some of these talented folks I thought it’d be fun to share the current list over 30 vendors that will be there.

From fashion to zines, fine art, leather goods and bike bags; you’ll find a bit of everything at BikeCraft.

Consider the links and photos below like a catalog. Start browsing now and get your game plan ready for the big weekend in December…

Just looking at the list gets me excited about the event… especially in light of our crazy economy it gives me great hope to see so many talented small business people thriving. I hope to see all of you at the event on December 3 and 4th. See for all the latest details and stay tuned for vendor profiles and more inside scoops!

    NEW THIS YEAR! Plan to stay at BikeCraft all day. Hang out with your friends, grab a beer, relax, meet new people, kick back and watch movies in the Filmed by Bike Lounge.

    In celebration of our upcoming 10th Anniversary, Filmed by Bike is hosting a bike movie lounge at BikeCraft. There will be comfy couches and chairs for you to chill out, and the fine woman of PDX By Bike will be on hand to answer all your questions about the ins-and-outs navigating this fine city by bike – with style. A rotating selection of not-much-attention-required movies will play throughout the day, and of course there will be Pedal Kettle popcorn.

    Filmed by Bike DVD sets will be on sale at special deeply discounted prices to get you inspired to, perhaps, make your own bike movie.
