TBEC: Tampa Bay Etsy Crew is planning a huge crafts party from 6-10 pm Friday, June 5, 2015, at the St. Petersburg Coliseum, 535 Fourth Ave N. The event, presented by TBEC, the Greenhouse and Strands of Sunshine, will include lots of handmade and vintage items for sale, craft demonstrations and make-and-take projects. The first 100 guests will receive a free swag bag. Admission is free.
Raffles will benefit Pet Pal Animal Shelter.
The Etsy Craft Party is a global celebration of meeting and making. Every year communities from around the globe participate and organize local gatherings to celebrate Etsy's birthday. In 2014, more than 8,500 people took part in these parties, including hundreds of party hosts.
This year marks Etsy’s 10th anniversary of connecting people around the world to make, sell and buy unique goods. And the party theme, Kaleidoscope: Paper Taking Shape, aligns perfectly with this milestone since kaleidoscopes represent many individual pieces coming together to create something beautiful — much like the dynamic shops that make up Etsy.
