But let's just suspend economic theory for a moment. BECAUSE BASH BUCKS ARE BACK!
DFW Child Magazine and Etsy Dallas are sponsoring TWO $50 Bash Bucks prizes. All you have to do is pop over to the contest site, fill in your name and email (so we can let you know you won!) and tell us your favorite holiday song.
On November 21st, you could be one of two lucky winners to receive $50 in Bash Bucks to spend the day of the show. So, make sure you'll be in town and that you're coming to the Bash, because (fine print) Bash Bucks spend just like cash but they must be spent the day of The Jingle Bash--November 23, 2013 from 11-6pm. They're non-transferable and not redeemable for cash. So if you buy a $5 item from one vendor, s/he can't give you $5 in cash change. If you're selected as a winner, you'll be given information on how/where to pick up your BASH BUCKS the day of the show.
And then you can pump those Bash Bucks back into the local craft economy. (Your economics teacher would be so proud.)
