Several folks asked me to give them the deets on the Dallas craft scene as I know it. I will be brief and list the ones that are Dallas-based and which recur every month, starting in March and going through to December. Here they are in the order that they occur each month:
Bishop Arts Market – First Saturday (and Sunday) of the month, in the parking lot adjacent to Odd Fellows cafe and Chang Thai. 8:00 am – 3:00 pm or later: http://bishopartssaturdaymarket.com/
White Rock Local Market – Second Saturday of the month from 8:00 am till 2:00 pm (with a second show occuring fourth Saturday just for local growers) in parking lot next to Green Spot gas station and market, on Buckner road: http://whiterocklocalmarket.com/
Deep Ellum Outdoor Market – Every Third Saturday of the month, on either side of Malcolm X Boulevard behind Cafe Brazil (which is on Elm Street) in the covered parking lot and in the tents across the road. Goes from 10 am till 5 pm generally:http://www.deepellummarket.com/home.html
We snapped some pics back in October at the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market, which coincided with the third annual Zombie Walk. We didn’t do much business, but had alot of fun watching the blood-soaked shoppers go by. Some days you just have to go with the flow, even if it’s coming from a vein. ewwwww!!
We tried out our new steel pipe necklace display rack. It’s heavy to load in, but can withstand massive wind gusts.
Did I mention there were zombies?
We’re always playing around with new ways to lay out our tent for maximum sales appeal, with a respectful nod to the weather. (sunshine is necessary to see stained glass, wind can tangle necklaces and blow earrings into the next block, and heat can destroy just about anything, including our spirits.)
We bought a cool string of ‘blinged out’ skeletons from another vendor, and immediately used them to add some spooky sparkle to our own tent…which was looking mighty spring-like. Is it the end of the day yet? (my feet look like they hurt!)
And now for a Holiday Message from your local crafters at One Fish, Two Fish…
Oh my gosh, my golly.. is it really time for mistletoe and holly!? Holy reindoor poop, it is! I suppose we may as well get happy about it. Why? ‘Cause there’s lots of neat handmade stuff from local artists (like us) to warm your heart and make you glad, at easy- to- acquire- prices. Best of all, it’s made in America, friends!
One Fish, Two Fish will have alot of new jewelry, stained glass mosaics, and upcycled glass creations to amuse you, plus some super special tongue-in-cheek cheesy wreaths and funky dioramas full of glitter and woodland creatures. Just like when you were a kid.
Saturday, Dec. 10 – White Rock “Green Spot” Market – 702 N. Buckner, in a white tent in the the parking lot.
This special-edition Christmas Show will be larger than most monthly shows. Hours are extended too, from 9:00 am till 3:00. Come dressed warmly and enjoy all the yummy baked goods and eggy tacos while browsing all the cool booths.
Saturday, Dec. 17 – Deep Ellum Outdoor Market -2820 Indiana Blvd. at Malcolm X Boulevard, Deep Ellum (a few steps from the new DART train stop!) We’ll be set up under the metal awning, not in our usual tent this time. There will be
great live music, funky vendors, and a festive neighborhood vibe.
