A shopping tradition for 31 years, this show is a staple in the Portland area and draws a steady 30,000 in its 6-day run. The show features 1,000 booths of a variety of interesting and diverse items ranging from beaded jewelry to dog beds. Booths are staffed and owned by the local small business owners. About 450 booths are juried handcrafted items including jams and jellies, jewelry, little girls' tutus, ornaments, apparel, and some really clever ideas turned into really cool things. America's Largest Christmas Bazaar is from Nov. 29 - Dec. 1 and Dec. 6 - 8 at the Portland Expo Center: 2060 N. Marine Dr. in Portland. Visit expochristmasbazaar.com.
