Cute crafts, quirky crafts, kids crafts, and couture crafts – Etsy Dallas’ Spring Bash is bound to have them all. “The original Dallas craft collective,” Etsy Dallas is hosting its Spring Bash this Saturday at South Side on Lamar, 1409 South Lamar in Dallas. More than 50 designers will be set up from 11 a.m. to 5 pm. The first 50 shoppers will receive a FREE goodie bag, but that’s not all that’s free. There is a free raffle and a Make & Take table. The Make & Take table is set up for shoppers to get creative and make a teeny- tiny diorama, or what they call “mini shrines.”
There are tons of materials on the table, and Girl Scout Troop 1637 from Irving will be on hand to help the non-crafty crafters. It’s a great idea, and fun for the whole family. Also, be sure to check out The Vanity Stand at the Spring Bash, where shoppers can dress up in an array of crazy costumes and get their photos taken. If I can do it, so can you!
Etsy Dallas is asking shoppers to bring cash, as most vendors cannot accept credit cards. For more information on this event, vendors and Etsy Dallas, check out the Etsy Dallas Web site, particularly the blog – it’s fun, cute and inspirational!
See you Saturday at South Side, rain or shine!
Next up: DIY Dioramas at the Dallas County Jail
Yup, you read right. Friday night, I’ll be working with Resolana and Shannon Driscol from Paper Nerds, helping incarcerated women create dioramas. I’m also scouting out information for my diorama to enter in the second annual Diorama-O-Rama on May 23rd.
