Holidays in the Pines, Redmond, OR

How can you help our local children in need and get a head start on your Holiday shopping? Attend the Snowflake Boutique! What began as a few friends selling their crafts from their home 35 years ago (1975) has evolved into a major Central Oregon event looked forward to by thousands of people.

This year, for its 34th anniversary, the Snowflake Boutique is looking to be big as ever. The event, which annually kicks off the holiday season, is set for Nov. 6th and 7th at the Deschutes Country Fairgrounds & Expo Center in Redmond in the North Sister building. The show is open from 1 to 8 p.m. Nov. 7 and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 8th. Admission is $2.00, which also entitles each visitor a chance to win hand made crafts donated by each Snowflake member.

The Snowflake Boutique is unique in many ways. It is a club, not a business. Club members donate their time to organize, set up and run this arts and crafts show. Consignors are “juried” to assure that their handcrafted items are of the highest quality and are not duplicates of another consignor’s craft. We usually have around 50 consignors that take part in the show, each one with their own unique style that almost guarantees the perfect gift for you or someone special.

Don’t mistake “Boutique” for “Bazaar”. The Snowflake Boutique differs from a bazaar in that items are intermingled for maximum ambience rather than segregated in booths. Common themes include: fishing, sports, floral arrangements, tree decorations, autumn, holiday, kitchen, garden, western – and everything in-between. What can you expect to find: wood carvings, stained glass, quilts, furniture, bird houses, clothing, purses, doll clothes, metal work, ceramics, handmade soaps and candles, jewelry, one of a kind decorations, and lots of Santa’s, snowmen and angels -- just to name a few.

We even have a HOLD table, so you won’t miss that special gift because it’s too heavy to carry while you continue to shop. No need to pull your wallet out every time you find something you want – just pay one time as you exit (we even take debit and credit cards).

The nonprofit organization that presents the Snowflake Boutique each year donates the post-expense proceeds to the Family Access Network (FAN) in Redmond . FAN is a collaborative network of agencies and school districts that provide services to children and families in need of basic resources, such as food, shelter, education and clothing.

Snowflake always welcomes new crafters. There will be open juries Saturdays May 30, August 15, September 26 and October 17 at 10:30AM in the Redmond Library, as well as Tuesday October 27 at 5:00PM at Ray’s Food Market in Redmond in the back conference room. All are invited to bring your handcrafted items, meet new friends and join our club. It’s NOT too late!

If you’ve not had the pleasure of experiencing this event, please reserve the time to do so. Your one stop shopping center “Snowflake Boutique” is a wonderful beginning to the holiday season and a delight for the senses.
