Etsy Craft Party

I have been so super busy this last week after market that I’ve not even been able to catch up with all the Market posts I have to tell you about. Not to mention, I need to tell you about Gingher, but that will have to wait for now because I have the most exciting news!

I’ve decided to host the Etsy Craft Party in Broken Arrow this year! I’ve already talked to the city about permit requirements, and I’ve also started working with the Main Street Merchants!

Here are the details so far.

June 10th, 2011 from 10am – 5pm. This is a come as you like event.

Your starting point is Centennial Park on the corner of Main and Broadway.  I will have a table set up where you can register to win door prizes which will be donated by the Merchants on Main Street!  There will also be a secondary table where Etsy Artisans are welcome to leave a stack of business cards or something along those lines for people to take. 

From the starting point you can just work your way up and down Main Street visiting each of the shops. The shops will have demonstration or merchandise booths set out in front of their shops. More details about the shops will come as we get closer.

If you plan on attending be sure to include your link in the list. You can either scroll down to the bottom of the page to add your link or select the "Etsy Craft Party" tab under the blog banner.

Unfortunately, this event is so last minute that I was unable to get permits to allow for Etsy shops to set up their own booth. However, if this has a good turn out and runs smoothly then I will hopefully be coordinating with the city to have a huge craft fair on Main Street later in September or October. If you have an Etsy shop and are interested in having a booth during that event then be sure to come out and support us now. (There will be a separate sign-up sheet for interests in future booth spaces. People who sign-up will be the first in line to receive booth space at the next event.)

If you have any questions please email me at talesofanewhousewife (at) gmail (dot) com.  If you are an Etsy shop owner and would like to donate a door prize please contact me about that as well.


  1. Looks and sounds great and I would be interested, depending on which weekend in the Fall. Thanks so much for all of the hard work!

  2. I was hoping to make it yesterday, but never had a chance to come out to Main Street. My daughter and I have a shop on Etsy and would love to have a booth in the fall! Let me know when it is!
