Shop the Bash: Gifts for the Guys

The guys...finding unique, meaningful gifts for the guys can be a challenge, but not at the Jingle Bash. This year's Jingle Bash will have some truly exceptional finds for the men in your life. Get your lists out and let's do a little pre-shopping...

Leather journals from A Cheery Blossom  for him to record all his manly thoughts. They can even be personalized.

A bow tie lapel pin and a pocket square for the holiday parties from Land of the Thread.

This Dallas Skyline Art Poster Print with Sound Waves from Klyde Warren Park Park would be awesome for his office from Voice & Sound.

An artsy t-shirt for casual Fridays by Dowdy Studio.

A Dallas pennant for the man cave from Little Skunk Co.

A clock every science enthusiast can get excited about, but most definitely your chemistry major brother will LOVE this from mini-Fab.

Etched wine glasses, shot glasses or beer tumblers from Monster Dance Designs to add some extra fun to cocktail hour. 

I know you get excited at the Jingle Bash about all the things you want for yourself, but really don't forget the guys this time when you are there on November 21st. They will love you for it!

For the Dudes: A Spring Bash Buyer's Guide

There will be SO MUCH good stuff at this year's Spring Bash that making this round-up was really, really hard! There will literally be something for EVERYBODY, and the dudes are no exception.

T-shirts are always a good choice, and Dowdy Studio really delivers. This "Drink Local" tee is one of the many, many garments they will bring to the Spring Bash.

Wayne Works is new to the team this year, and we're really excited about what they'll bring to the Bash! One of the pieces that stood out to me the most was this Industrial Reclaimed Wood Strut Shelf. Minimal, slightly rustic, and super sturdy. I want one in my office!

Tread Studios is also a new addition to the team. I'm sure you've probably seen their work circulating around town - their watercolors are so great!

Let us not forget about Father's Day, which is coming up on June 21st. Use Toko Dots' colorful card to tell Dad how you feel!

Help the guy in your life be prepared for, well, ANYTHING, with this Zombie Apocalypse Survival Guide notebook from Made by Rori. You never know when they'll need it!

You can never have too many places to stash keys, cash, or other small items, and this Mojave Leather Bowl from SCOUT + LILLY will do the trick quite nicely.

Beard maintenance can get tiresome, I'm sure, but this beautifully made beard comb will surely alleviate some of that stress. You can find this at new member Big T Wood Works' booth on May 2nd.

And finally, this really gorgeous Lava Rock Bracelet by Expressions Bracelets is a great, subtle accessory. And bonus: a portion of each sale goes to Autism Awareness.

Come and see all of these artists (and so many more!) on May 2nd at the Southside Events Center at Gilley's Dallas! The Bash will run from 11 am to 6 pm. Be sure to bring your reusable tote bag for all of your goodies.

We will be posting artist previews and other information on our blogFacebook 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 #2015springbash for all event posts, so check us out!

Daily Discoveries: Mainly for the Men

At this year's Spring Bash, we will have plenty of fun for the men folk too. Gordon Biersch will be on hand selling tasty food and freshly brewed beer, and there will be loads of cool goods for the guys too. Here are a few of my favorite picks mainly for the men.
