Big things are happening for Etsy Denton. First and foremost, they are no longer called “Etsy Denton”. They have changed their name to “DIME”, or the Denton Independent Maker Exchange. Second, they are opening a brick-and-mortar store only a short walk from the Square at 501 S. Locust Street. While the store doesn’t officially open until April 5, they are hosting a pre-party and pop-up show during 35 Denton.
Featuring fifteen local artists and craftsmen selling their goods, the pop-up shop had its opening from 6-9pm on Friday night. It was a great opportunity for people to come in and browse DIME’s new space where they will not only run a store but also put on workshops, art classes, and gallery shows.
If you weren’t able to make it, fear not. The event continues Saturday from 11am until 7pm with live music and fun. Come check it out and get a peek of what Denton’s creative class has to offer.
