Etsy Dallas Turns Two!

It all started with an great idea and a couple dozen invitation emails. Stephanie Hindall/Tefi Designs sent out this email is September 2007 and soon had a group of Dallas crafties ready to get together to share ideas and put on their first trunk show as a group:

"Hi there! I’m looking to start up an Etsy street team focusing on sellers in the Dallas area. To start with, I thought we could meet once a month or at least once a quarter, participate in trunk shows together at our homes, share ad space and the cost of a simple website, etc. In order to get this off the ground, I’ll need to get at least 3-5 fellow Dallas “estiers” on board. Please let me know if you are interested! Cheers, Stephanie"

In short, the first Etsy Dallas Trunk Show was in December of 2007 with 9 crafters. The group has grown each year and added new members and fun events. The upcoming 2nd Annual Jingle Bash will include over 50 vendors. Mark your calendars, this is a great event -- round up your friends & shopping list and come by and enjoy!
