South Side On Lamar
1409 South Lamar Street
Dallas, TX 75215-1871

This Saturday is the 2nd Annual Etsy Dallas Spring Bash at the South Side on Lamar. 50 hand-picked artists will be laying out their best goods - offering unique and handmade art, jewelry, apparel, bath and body products and more. Shop for items that no one else will have and have fun doing it. Saturday will include everything from DJ tunes, cocktail mixes, and free DIY craft projects. Get entered in the raffle benefitting Operation Kindness Animal Shelter for a chance to win top-notch handmade prizes. The first 50 people in the door will receive a Bash Goody Bag filled with promos, samples and products from local Etsy crafters and businesses.

Oh, and did I mention, the Spring Bash is FREE to attend! But don't think you're getting out of there without spending a little money. I tried that last year- couldn't resist the Dowdy Studio Guitar/Tree t-shirt. I love that shirt.

About the Etsy Dallas Spring Bash
The Spring Bash is not just a craft show, it’s a party. Presented by Etsy Dallas, and organized by a handful of volunteers, the Spring Bash was the answer to Etsy Dallas members’ needs to have an energetic event to sell their work, get to know their fellow crafters and socialize with the public. The primary focus of Etsy Dallas, a juried group of 50 artists living in the Dallas area, is to work together to better themselves, their craft and their community.
