Have fun this weekend, and stay safe!

Announcing the 7th Annual Jingle Bash!

Yes friends, it's almost our favorite time of the year! The 7th Annual Jingle Bash will be here before you know it! 

This year, we will be back at Gilley's Dallas, but with the addition of an extra room. We have made more space for even more artists, crafters, and makers. We will have lots of your returning local favorites and new guest artists to meet too. We are absolutely thrilled about our lineup this year! You can check out the full lineup on our Artists page

Planning on attending? Helpful Jingle Bash tips: 
  • Get there early! Doors open at 11 am, and the first 50 attendees receive limited-edition Bash Bags stuffed with free goodies from sellers. 
  • Bring the kids! The Etsy Dallas Jingle Bash is a kid-friendly event! There will be make-and-take crafts for kids and grown-ups alike. There is a restaurant on-site as well for those post-shopping hungries. FYI: crowds can be a challenge to navigate with a stroller, so if you're worried, feel free to come later in the day when the crowds thin a little bit, and you'll be able to shop with ease. You can even eat at the restaurant when you're done!
  • Bring cash as well as cards. Many sellers accept credit cards nowadays, but sometimes it is easier (and quicker) to pay for your purchase with cash. There is an ATM at Gilley's, but if you'd like to avoid fees, you should probably withdraw cash from your bank's ATM. 
Over the next few weeks, we will give a preview of all the talented artisans that you will have the chance to meet at the Jingle Bash here on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Stay tuned and keep up to date with all the latest Bashy info with hashtags #etsydallas and #2015JingleBash.
