About the event
DESTASH started in 2016, as a humble, grass roots event, with about a dozen of us and our baby handmade businesses, looking to sell off our imperfect handmade items and supplies in order to support fresh new projects and aspirations for the new year. It also served as our annual Customer Appreciation Party! Tactile Craftworks brought fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, Cival brought the "potion" for the Bloody Mary bar, SilverWear by Misty brought the vodka, Big White Yeti brought the candles of course, I still have Zewing Girl's chip bowl (sorry!), everybody brought something and it was hosted at the Permanent Baggage studio/boutique. The brick & mortar is now closed but used to be located on Hamilton Street, a couple blocks north of Brady Street.
The event has continued to grow over the years with makers of all types coming together for a day of destashing our imperfect art and supplies, to nurture comradery among small businesses owners and to most genuinely thank our community for their support. Makers of all levels are encouraged to apply however we do give preference to those who are supporting themselves through the sale of their work either part or full-time.
At Destash, you can sell off your slightly flawed or imperfect items, your out of season items, your experiments/prototypes, pieces you've become bored with, old branding, items nearing expiration (within 3 months), AND your EXCESS SUPPLIES. In the past some makers have created a product from their scrap that they only sell during Destash at this awesome price and put together surprise goodie bags.
