Spring Portland Home and Garden Show

EXPO Center

This show is worth going to because the diversity of the venders. I especially liked the Pendleton Wool 100th Anniversary booth. There was a huge wall of blankets. A display of Pendleton clothes from over the last 100 years. And lots of Pendleton wool items to buy.

There is a large amount of plants for sale. All the venders that show up for every show. You can enter to win an Adair home. Stop by Montivilla sewing. It was just fun to walk around in.

$10 admission. Three dollars off with Fred Meyers card. $7 dollars parking. Yellow max line, last stop.

Now showing at OMSI is Da Vinci The Genius.

This show is fun and interesting. I was disappointed that not enough of the gadgets were interactive. They were cool to look at. The bike looked very uncomfortable to ride. The flight machines looked like birds. The Military machines were scary. The ball bearing and gear system were fascinating. What really piqued my interest was the information on his paintings. The layers, the pigments were exciting new information to me.

Also this weekend is the agate and mineral show.

They will be open Monday February 16, 2009 in honor of Presents day. Normally they are closed on Mondays.
