Sponsor Spotlight: Freckled Chicken


If you’re shopping for a little girl, prepare to fall in love with Freckled Chicken. We love Holly’s sweet handmade pieces, and we are very happy to have her as a Spring Bash sponsor.

We love the unique and whimsical clothing from Freckled Chicken. Looking for something specific? Holly offers custom pieces too. 

Holly earned a degree in fashion and spent much of her career focused on grownup clothes. Then she began making clothing for her daughter and something magical hatched. “I have to say children’s wear is a lot more fun,” she said.

Holly joined Etsy in late 2010 and said she immediately recognized its importance. “Etsy has definitely been a game-changer for many artisans,” Holly said. She is looking forward to another great turnout for the bash.

Stop by the Freckled Chicken booth at the Spring Bash 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 26, 2014.

Sponsor Spotlight: K8made


We just adore the stunning clutches from K8made, and we are so excited to have our own Kate as a sponsor of the Spring Bash. Mother’s Day is coming up and we know lots of moms who would love to rock one of these exquisite clutches.

We caught up with Kate for a quick chat about the handmade shows…

“I believe the bash is one of the best handmade shows in the Dallas area,” Kate said. “As part of the team, I enjoy doing what I can to help make the event a success for everyone.”

Kate said the bash provides a great opportunity for local artists to interact with the community and to share their work with a much larger audience. “This can be instrumental in furthering the handmade movement and each individual artist’s business,” she said.

She is also a big supporter of independent artists. She loves to buy handmade when shopping for gifts for friends and family. “When you buy handmade, you’re guaranteed to get a unique product that was made with care and purpose,” Kate said. “When you shop at the Spring Bash, you’ll never be disappointed.”

We couldn’t agree more. Be sure to visit the K8made booth at the Spring Bash on April 26, 2014.
