34th Annual Hawthorne Street Fair vendor comments: “Just wanted to thank you for letting us be part of the Street Fair yesterday. It was a good experience and a nice introduction to PDX for my wife and I who just moved here last month from Denver. Many thanks for the exposure! Todd” (jxrxkx.bigcartel.com)
“Thank you for putting on such a well-organized event. We had a great show and connected with people from all over the world who came out for the eclipse festival. We connected with people from Australia, Italy, Montreal, France, Cuba and all parts of the US. Hope to do it again. Danusia” (firstname.lastname@example.org)
