A while back, we pointed you into the direction of an Etsy Bazaar that went down in Denton. Soon, it’s Ft. Worth that will be getting in on the Etsy action with the second annual Cowtown Indie Bazaar.

We here celebrate the independent spirit of Etsy participants and the indepenent dealers that take part in the sales and craftsy networking. As we walk the aisles of various art exhibits and other bazaar’s we know what we like when we see it. Wish that meant we knew what we were talking about when it comes to such things, but sadly, it often doesn’t. With that in mind, I’m going to let the note that the folks from the Cowtown Indie Bazaar sent us do much of the heavy lifting here…

The free event is produced by volunteer local artisans and will feature handmade goods from the best local artists and crafters in the metroplex, a charitable raffle benefiting Hope Center for Autism, live music, and family-friendly ‘make-and-take’ craft activities.

The vendor list will be announced in late August and will include jewelry, home goods, baby and kids items, unique clothing and accessories, bath and body products, original artwork, eco-friendly items and much more.  The indoor event is free to attend, climate controlled, family friendly, and the first 50 attendees will receive a complimentary goody bag filled with handmade items made by the vendors.

This is the third show produced by Etsy Fort Worth, following two successful shows in March of this year and September 2010.  The Cowtown Indie Bazaar is produced exclusively by volunteer local artisans as a way to promote the handmade movement within the Fort Worth area.
