Maine Craft Portland Holiday Window Contest

Maine Craft Portland is delighted to take part in the annual Downtown Portland Holiday Window Contest! Not familiar? Here are the deets from Portland Downtown’s website:

Ready to be dazzled? This holiday season, businesses all over downtown Portland will decorate their windows with spectacular, eye-popping displays for all to enjoy. The gorgeous creations will delight thousands of residents and visitors who can vote for their favorite beginning Dec 2 on our Facebook page. The photo/business with the most “likes” by noon on Thursday, Dec. 12th will be declared our “Community Choice.”

In addition to the Community Choice, our official Judges Panel will select winners in four categories: Best Overall, Best Use of Product or Merchandise, Best Theme, and Most Original. The winning businesses will receive fabulous advertising packages from Portland Press Herald — not to mention bragging rights!

The staff of Maine Craft Portland have built larger than life tools out of recycled materials collected over the years. We want to highlight these tools of the trades – and beyond – which are essential to our craft artists and allow the viewer a peek into studio life. With each piece you purchase this holiday season, either in the gallery or online at Shop Maine Craft, you are supporting the essential craftspeople who use these tools each day to create the work we all enjoy.

Merry Madness Passport

Maine Craft Portland will be participating in the Portland Downtown Merry Madness Passport shopping event! The Merry Madness Passport is a pocket-sized booklet filled with deals, discounts, and special offers at over 60 participating downtown businesses. The Passport makes it fun and easy to explore downtown, support the local businesses you love, and find treasures for everyone on your holiday shopping list. Adding to the fun: you can collect official Merry Madness Passport stamps throughout the season. Passport holders who collect 10 stamps or more will be eligible to win some amazing raffle prize packages curated by Portland Downtown.
