What's up in June & May - Springtime Giveaway

It's that time again! That's right, it's time to raise your voice, let us know you're out there, and win something awesome for FREE!

This week's giveaway is sponsored by Eye On The Sparrow. If you aren't familiar with her work, I've got to tell you, it's amazing! Abbie, owner and artist behind Eye On The Sparrow, creates all her jewelry from used guitar strings. A lot of musicians just throw their strings away, but the great ones send them over to Abbie to be brought back to life! Abbie donates a portion of the proceeds for each sale to the Carter Albrecht Music Foundation.

One lucky DFW Craft Shows reader will WIN this beautiful Slim Silver Restoration Bracelet made by Eye On The Sparrow, a value of $34.00. Made with stainless steel guitar strings donated by Pete Weise of Denton, this bracelet measures approximately 2 3/8" in diameter, 7 1/2" in circumference.

How to Enter: Simply leave a comment here or on our Facebook page and tell us about one local North Texas Show you are looking forward to selling or shopping at during the months of May - June!

Contest ends at 10:00PM on Tuesday, May 18th. Winners will be announced the morning of Wednesday, May 19th, 2010.

  5. I've seen Eye on the Sparrow's work at several shows. Their craftsmanship is just wonderful!

    I'm looking forward to attending Art in the Park in May and The North Texas Institute Craft Fair by Goodwill in June (I may possibly be a vendor there too).

  6. Hey there! I am so excited that others are recycling items. I recently just started making jewelry and am looking forward to re-purposing rather than spending a lot money and more waste into our environment. I would love to win this bracelet. I'm planning to attend the ArtCycleTX show this Sunday! Thank you!

  7. I'm really jazzed for the 1st Saturday at Lee Harvey's and the Panther City Bar Bazaar the first and second weekends (respectively) in June.
