What could be a more classic gift than handcrafted wooden toys and tops!?!
I have admired Yasu Kobayashi's work ever since he started setting up at Portland Saturday Market twenty years ago.
The colors and the shapes of his creations lure you over to his booth. He will demonstrate any top that you are interested in, and allows shoppers to give them a spin.
Whatever the occassion you can find a lovingly created toy for people of any age at Yasu Kobayashi's booth.
