A crowd favorite, the Spring Bash will offer up free Bash Bags™ for the first 50 shoppers. These collectible canvas bags – chock full of handmade products – have become a thing of legend. At the 2010 Jingle Bash held at The Palladium, shoppers arrived three hours early to stand in line for a Bash Bag™.

Shoppers are invited to come out to the Spring Bash, a hip, modern craft event full of shopping, music, and handmade good times – just in time for Mother’s Day. The Bash is more than your typical craft show; it’s a celebration of local art, craft and talent!
