Not that long ago, craft fairs were about as cool as a No Fear sticker on the back of your Ford Probe, but oh how the times have changed. Nowadays, No Fear still sucks, but Craft Fairs are the business with one small caveat – don’t call it a craft fair. Call it the Etsy Handmade Bash instead and it’s instantly hipper than Betty White on a birthday card. The annual Etsy Dallas Spring Bash is happening on Saturday, May 2nd from 11 a.m. to 6p.m. at South Side on Lamar, 1135 S. Lamar Street. This year’s vendors include t-shirt screenprinter Dowdy Studio, leathergoods and paper prints from SCOUT + LILLY, bocote and cocobolo combs from Big T Woodsoon and more. The first fifty guests will receive a free Bash Bag which is basically a swag back just way more alliterative. Pre-shop or grab yourself a little sneak peek at etsydallas.blogspot.com.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
