Lemme tell ya, we love to happy dance.In fact, we're so thrilled about the Jingle Bash that we want to offer you a chance to join us in our collective happy dancing by offering a chance to win some awesome prizes in the form of Bash Bucks.

Craft Meets Cool at the ‘09 Jingle Bash

Saturday, November 21st, 1-7pm

These days, buying locally handmade goods is the new cool, and the Jingle Bash is here to make sure you stay cool all season long.
Make your way to the Sons of Hermann Hall on November 21, and shop from over 50 hand-picked artists, designers and crafters selling their modern handmade goods.
On hand will be recycled vintage jewelry (Sadie's Things), vintage-inspired d├ęcor (Laura Davis Design Lab), screenprinted tees (Harrilu and Dowdy Studio), modern handbags (Banana Showcase and Cut Out and Collect), vinyl record jewelry (Texas Tarts), hip crocheted winter-wear (KarmaCrochet), felted necklaces (Tefi Designs), and soap in the shape of dentures (Soapopotamos). (No, I'm not joking.)
When you’re done shopping, belly up to the bar for a beer, great home cooked food, and a game of pool. Or grab your brewski and head back out for a second round of shopping.
Artist booths will fill the Hall upstairs in the ballroom and downstairs in the bowling alley and board room. Enjoy live music and DJ tunes throughout the Hall to keep you rockin’ and shoppin’ all day long.
Cross everyone off your gift list this year at the 2nd Annual Jingle Bash and make it a handmade holiday!
