Team EtsyAustin proudly announces its first-ever Holiday Bazaar!

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS for EtsyAustin team members! Priority deadline is Nov. 2nd. Click the above image to download a PDF file with more info & the application.


We anticipate a great turnout and a very exciting event because of the unique vibe and indie spirit of The Broken Neck. This skate and punk rock venue located in East Austin is definitely not a typical location for a holiday bazaar - this ain’t your grandma’s craft show! However, we think it will be a wonderful opportunity to create an affordable holiday gift-buying experience for people looking for something different.

Our bazaar will be open to a wide range of vendors, such as local artists & crafters; clothing designers; vintage clothing & home goods resellers; record collectors; and bakers & cooks. Aside
from all of the great vendors, we will also have live music throughout the event and a skate demo. It promises to be an entertaining weekend that will draw a diverse crowd!

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.
