Sponsor Spotlight: Regal Cottage


Hello, and welcome back to the Etsy Dallas Blog! We're so pleased and proud to welcome back our next Jingle Bash sponsor - Regal Cottage!

Regina Frydman, owner and designer, is the brainchild behind this super cute line of children's toys and gifts. However, Regal Cottage is truly a family affair. While Regina designs, illustrates, and sews all of her products, her husband loves woodworking and handles the bookkeeping, and their four kids are designated as the "in-house product review committee." And some Etsy Dallas members are also product testers – just ask Rori of MadeByRori!

Regina makes all products in her home studio from eco-friendly base materials, such as vegan leather and organic fabrics. She’s made a bunch of new items this past season that are crazy adorable, so be sure to stop by her booth!

You can see more of Regina's work on her Facebook page, her blog, and her Instagram account. And on November 21st, swing by the Southside Events Center at Gilley's Dallas from 11 am to 6 pm to see her in person!


We will be posting artist previews and other information on our blog, Facebook page, and Instagram account, so make sure you're following us for up-to-the-date information. We will be using the hashtags #etsydallas and #2015JingleBash for all event posts, so follow along!
