Hi readers! Back to school time is here, and Etsy Dallas is hosting our annual school supply drive for Girls Incorporated of Metropolitan Dallas. Bring some pencils, crayons, notebooks and meet us at NorthPark Center on August 13, 2016 from 1:00 to 5:00pm. Our members will be teaching some fun kid friendly crafts, and spreading awareness for an important local cause. Check out the video below. We hope to see you there!
Etsy Dallas is excited to announce what we hope will become an annual event to benefit Girls Incorporated of Metropolitan Dallas. We have some fun make-and-take crafts planned, and we are collecting donated school and art supplies (or cash). All donations go to Girls Inc.

This year, Etsy Dallas is pleased to welcome The Shops at Park Lane as a presenting sponsor of the 5th Annual Spring Bash. Located in the heart of midtown Dallas, The Shops at Park Lane pairs the best in stylish shopping with distinctive dining and entertainment options, in a modern urban environment. They’re a perfect fit for our Spring Bash.
On Bash day, in addition to all the handmade goodness happening in the big white tent, you’ll meet some of The Shops’ premier tenants. Gordon Biersch is our official beer provider and Whole Foods (the largest Whole Foods in North Dallas!) is sponsoring a DIY make-and-take craft table. And many shops are offering deals in conjunction with the Spring Bash--just ask!
What’s so great about this year’s location for the Bash is you can make a day of it. Our Spring Bash vendors will be open from 11-7, but before that you can stroll through some of the flagship stores, maybe get a mani/pedi, take your kids to play on an on-site playground. After the Bash, you can grab some groceries or just meet up with a few friends and compare Bash finds at one of the five restaurants on site. (And that’s not including the food and fun to be had at Bowl and Barrel.)
Located directly across Central from North Park Center, The Shops at Park Lane is a destination for fun and great finds; add the Spring Bash to the mix and you’re guaranteed a fabulous Saturday. Oh yeah, there’s plenty of free, on-site parking!
You’ll find Etsy Dallas on the green, adjacent to Dick’s and Gordon Biersch on Saturday, April 27 from 11am-7pm. Check The Shops at Park Lane’s website for store directories and maps!
