SELLING AT THE BASH
The Bash is a juried, handmade-only show.
No resale items, no vintage, no commercial products, no supplies at the Bash.
All artists must be present to staff their own booth during the Bash. If you have staff that is knowledgeable and trained to sell your products, please let us know at the time of application if they attend in your absence.
Artists are not allowed to sell another artist's products.
Artists may not sell any trademarked or copyright items unless they show proper licensing agreements to the jury at the time of application.
Artists may sell only items on their application in order to avoid over saturation of categories, to be fair to fellow vendors, and to provide shoppers with a diverse array of products.
Artists do not have to live in the Dallas area nor be a member of Etsy Dallas to apply. We welcome artists from all over the country!
Applicants do not need to have an Etsy shop, but quality web presence is highly encouraged.
Anyone who meets the above criteria is welcome to apply!
Complete applications and application fees are due by midnight (CST) February 27, 2019.

No cash or checks accepted.
Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted.
In order to be considered, you must provide a working web link depicting clear photos of your handmade products.
No photos accepted via email or snail mail.
The State of Texas requires vendors to have a Sales Tax ID in order to pay sales tax on all items sold in Texas. Visit the State Comptroller's web site for more info http://www.window.state.tx.us/
