Progressive Craft & More

We're excited to announce that we will be working with the Etsy Dallas street team on a progressive craft project during the show!

You may be wondering what the heck a progressive craft is-- think progressive dinner but with craft supplies and a project. We'll have tables among different areas in the show where you (or your children--its kid friendly!) will be able to create a special little project. Each area will be placed among different areas in the show, so as you shop you can also have fun and craft! The members of the Etsy Dallas street team will be manning the tables and helping organize the project.

We hope you can join in the fun -- be sure to check it out at the show on Aug. 17th!

We're also looking for volunteers and donations to help us at the show! Interested in being part of a great indie shopping experience?? Please contact us at showponyshow(at)
