BikeCraft is this weekend! Here’s a sneak peek at the vendors


BikeCraft is here! You have two days to find amazing things. We suggest planning ahead.

The 11th annual BikeCraft holiday gift fair is this weekend. For just two days you’ll get the opportunity to meet local artists and craftmakers who are just as inspired by cycling as you are. And the best part? Everything is for sale. If you are looking to treat yourself or get some holiday shopping done, you should not miss this event.

In addition to the 25-30 vendors (see the list and teaser pics below), the event will also feature free winter bike check-ups from Pedal Bike Tours on both days from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. Just wheel your bike over for a pit-stop (air, lube, adjustments) and get free advice from Pedal Bike Tours’ master mechanic Edwin Skaug.

If you come on Sunday around 1:00 pm you’ll be treated to a performance by the BTA Carolers. Who are they? Well I happened to grab some rare footage of them back in 2010 (before they were big):

And as promised, we’ve grabbed the super secret list of current vendors so you can prep your game-plan before the big event. Check out a teaser of just some of the vendors below….

Mr. Beebe also makes very cool framebags, which he’s showing off here at BikeCraft 2012.


Velo Gioielli


Brian makes amazing things. This is just one of the many forms his bike-part jewelry and furnishings create.

Portland Pogies


Slip your hands into these and you will never be cold again. Gloves are over!

Gigi’s Handywork


Gigi’s “Helmuffs” are always a huge hit at BikeCraft. They keep your ears warm while not messing with your helmet fit and letting your head breathe.



In this weather one can never have too many knitted things.

But wait! There’s even more. This is just a sampling of the vendors. You’ll also find printed matter and various multimedia products from esteemed enterprises like Filmed by Bike, Bicycle Times Magazine, Microcosm Publishing, and Urban Adventure League.

For more of what to expect at BikeCraft, check out our photos of past events.

And if you’re still on the fence, organizer Aaron Kaffen says there will be activities for the kids and he reminds us that all the proceeds from the event will be donated to Bike Farm.

Here are the details:

Our bikesexual “Tappins” are handmade in Italy. Normally only available at screenings of Bike Smut this is a rare opportunity.

Thanks for the write up! The event will actually be from 11am – 5pm both days. The events on are just in a funky order, so it seems like it starts later.
