Hey Spring Bash Shoppers - We Love You!

We hope you are excited as we are about the upcoming 3rd Annual Spring Bash this Saturday. It will be our 9th craft show since our humble beginnings in 2007! There is so much fun stuff to do at the Bash - shop, craft, drink, groove - that we sometimes forget the boring stuff. Here's the low down on some important details for you, dear shopper:

Since the Spring Bash is all indoors at South Side on Lamar, no rain or yucky weather will stop us from having this party. Come one! Come all!! (and bring plenty of cash...see below)

The Bash has become one crazy popular show, and we couldn't thank you enough dear shoppers! There tends to be a mad rush of shoppers the first two or three hours of our show. If crowds aren't your thing, come on out to the Bash toward the end of the show so you'll be able to browse all the amazing art + craft, talk with the artists, and push those strollers down the aisles. If it's too crowded and you need to take a break, grab a drink at Absinthe's full bar, or have a warm cup of coffee at Opening Bell located in the building. Remember, there's no charge to get in, so come out whenever it best suits your needs. We'd love to see you no matter what time you show up and appreciate your support more than you know!

Shoppers can park in several places at South Side on Lamar. There is a free 2-hour retail lot across from the main Bash entrance on Belleview Street, several larger $5 lots next to this small 2-hour lot, meter spaces along Lamar Street, and some free parking sprinkled throughout The Cedars neighborhood.

Take the blue or red line to The Cedars stop on the DART rail, and save on gas and ugly carbon emissions!

We love our bike friendly citizens. Strap on your helmet and head over to South Side on two wheels!

There are two ATM's on site, but the Bash cannot control if they are functioning and/or full of dollars. Please bring plenty of cash with you since some vendors don't accept credit cards or checks. Our DJ also accepts cash tips. Believe us - you're gonna love her and she's worth a few dollars to say "Thanks for the groovin' tunes!" Absinthe Bar will accept cash or credit for drinks. Etsy Dallas is collecting cash donations at the photo booth with all proceeds benefiting relief efforts Sendai, Japan - Dallas' sister city!

It's true! Dogs just love the handmade way. Show them a good time by bringing your leashed pal to the show. South Side is a dog-friendly building, and the Bash is a dog-friendly event! Need another loving pup to add to your family? A dog adoption group will be on-hand from 10am-4pm with some super sweet adoptable doggies.
