Team Etsy Austin's Holiday Bazaar!

Hi all, this is Kristen from pommes frites and Haunted Housewares writing to fill you in on Team Etsy Austin's first Holiday Bazaar at the Broken Neck.

The Broken Neck is a punk venue located in East Austin (4701 Red Bluff Rd, basically the intersection of Cesar Chavez and Springdale). Find more info about Broken Neck on their myspace.

We will have room for about 20 booths at the Broken Neck. The applications will be open to Team members first and foremost, and will be due on November 2nd. After the 2nd we will begin accepting applications from the general crafty public.

here's the important info...
Dates & Times:
Fri. Dec. 19th: 4:00 PM - midnight;
Sat. Dec. 20th: 2:00 PM - midnight;
Sun. Dec. 21st: 2:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Application Fee: $0
Booth Fee: $100

Booth Space: 5' x 8'

There will be bands playing throughout the day, as well as a skate demo on Saturday.

Note: we will pose limits on the number of booths of similar vendors, in order to have a wide variety of items at this sale. Jewelry in particular, is an art form that is always well-represented, & we will not allow more than 5 jewelry booths. so if you're a jewelry-maker, consider sharing a booth with a fellow jewelry artist. You'll have the opportunity to apply together on one application, so check out the team page to start planning now.

If you have any more questions, feel free to comment and I will respond. Remember, applications will be due November 2! Check back here later this week (Thurs or Fri) for a downloadable link.



  1. Great post, Kristen! thanks! I'm finishing up the app today - stay tuned...

  2. Dear Advertising/Promotions Manager,

    We would like to extend to you the opportunity to use The Greensheet as one of your in-kind “Media Sponsors”. From promoting an event to recruiting volunteers, it’s a great place to spread the word. Because we cover a lot of ground, you will be seen by thousands of likely volunteers and supporters. The Greensheet believes in working on a local level to make things better in our communities. Our support of nonprofits, green initiatives, and education are three ways that we give back to the communities that have kept us around for almost 40 years.

    I would be delighted to provide you with more detailed information about how the Greensheet Promotions Department can work with you to create an advertising campaign that will promote Esty Austin's Holiday Bazaar and give Austin residents the opportunity to win tickets or get involved each week through The Greensheet. My contact information is below in case you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to forming a partnership with you and Esty Austin!
