The Jingle Bash and Spring Bash - Dallas' popular handmade shopping events - are organized by Pamela Michelle and Tefi Designs and presented by Etsy Dallas, the city's original local craft collective since 2007. The Bash features artists, designers and crafters selling their top quality handmade goods to the public, and includes music, entertainment, food, a full bar and the famous free Goody Bags. While the Bash is a family-friendly event, the vibe is fun and hip - a show full of handmade love and good times. Think of it as a party - not your typical craft show!

The Bash began as a small trunk show back in December 2007 featuring 10 local artists and crafters. From there it grew to a Valentine's Day show in 2008, the now-infamous Beer-B-Q trunk show in May 2008, to the first Jingle Bash in November of that year at the historic Sons of Hermann Hall. The following year (2009), the first Spring Bash took over South Side on Lamar and shopper traffic was non-stop. Since then, the Jingle Bash and Spring Bash have become Dallas' most popular annual handmade shopping events. In 2009 the Bash was even voted Best One-Stop Shop by Dallas Observer readers and staff!
