IDA Marketplace

We are really excited about this year's IDA Marketplace! All of the IDA Marketplace vendors are graduates of the Oregon Individual Development Account Initiative who will join us in Salem to sell their wares and tell us about how having an IDA laid the groundwork for their success. Meet our IDA Marketplace vendors below.

2018 Marketplace Vendors



Designs by: Chelsea Kelly started out with up-cycling materials & creating fashionable accessories out of them. As the business has grown, I've been able to branch out into different areas. Not only does owner Chelsea Kelly have her own line of up-cycled items, but she also has an organic cotton knit line that is made with new materials. She makes bags, scarves, makeup bags, baby blankets, passport wallets and many other accessories. She also does many custom orders. Chelsea says, "Moving forward with my dream of being an independent designer has been such an amazing experience & 100% golden decision."




Dippity Do Da Dips is owned and operated by Jeanette Casey in Eastside, Oregon. She makes a variety of dip mixes which are great as gifts, for your next party, or just for you! The mixes are free of salt, MSG and preservatives and can be made vegan. Jeanette “completed the ‘DreamSavers’ IDA program in 2014 and I learned so much about expanding my small home-based business. Writing a business plan, saving funds every month and the help I received from my advisor has been invaluable to me.”

Herbs we aren't able to grow,s along with the oils and waxes used in our products come from local organic sources when possible.

Flossieolivedesigns began as a curiosity and a desire to do something meaningful with my surroundings and turn “scrap” into functional art. I have moved through various mediums throughout my life with the mingling of art, nature and function remaining constant.  A few years ago I picked up a hobby pyrography tool at a craft store.  I fell in love with the art form. Burning an image into wood added a different and much needed element to my art.  It felt cleansing and spiritual, old and significant compared to what I had done previously.  Slowly I have cultivated this skill and developed a style that is morphing into more elaborate wood projects and metal.




We started as social workers and Native foster youth, we are now Indigenous Come Up. We sell Handmade Art, Crafts and Jewelry at local Powwows and other events in the Portland Oregon area.

In 2015 Lluvia was working as a social worker and Chance was one of the youth on Lluvia’s Case load. That year within that program Lluvia and staff started the Foster Care Craft booth where the youth would make crafts and then sell their crafts through the FCC booth at local pow wow’s and other Native specific events.

In 2017 Lluvia stopped working at that job. But Lluvia and Chance never lost contact and continued to talk about finding opportunities to sell their crafts and Jewelry.

We offer handmade original block art prints, handmade hair scrunchies, therapy pillows (small and large fun shaped characters that brighten your day), lanyards and many varieties of earrings. We are always creating and coming up with new products.

Lluvia officially registered Indigenous Come up April 2018.

Jo Lundberg’s art is about creative alchemy: creating something beautiful, meaningful and sustainable, appealing to customer’s aesthetic tastes and ethics. Using salvaged and up-cycled wood pieces that are sourced from carpenters and arborists as a substrate, she uses the natural beauty of the wood grain as part of the composition painting surreal sea-scapes. Inspired by the natural world, and our relationship to it, the pieces often incorporate the human figure with undercurrents of psychology and the human condition bisect. Her art speaks to the human condition - many pieces are influenced and inspired by her personal experiences, many of which are universal to all of us.

Our company began with a promise - if remote Himalayan communities would grow tea, we would introduce their teas into the US. At the time, our founder Raj was in Northern India on a Fulbright Fellowship. When the communities said yes, he moved to Springfield and setup our company.

To learn how to create world class teas, we’ve partnered with pioneers across the Indian subcontinent. We’re honored to offer our teachers’ teas as a part of our collection. As such, every tea we carry plays a role in creating a more sustainable future.
