2018 DECK THE HALLS MERCHANTS
Welcome Potential Merchants,
The Junior League of Waco is pleased to invite you to be a part of our thirteenth annual Deck the Halls Gift Market, November 1 – November 4, 2018, at the Waco Convention Center. Waco is located along the well-traveled Interstate 35 corridor approximately 100 miles south of Dallas and 90 miles north of Austin. Our market offers merchants the opportunity to reach more than 220,000 Central Texans who call the Waco area their home.
The Deck the Halls Gift Market will kick off with our Ladies’ Night Out event held the evening of Thursday, November 1st with several other special events throughout the weekend. In addition, all special event photography will occur in the Market Hall and our performance stage will remain in the Market Hall this year to encourage people to shop before and after performances. All proceeds benefit the mission of the Junior League of Waco and our many community projects.
This year, we are excited to share Deck the Halls with Baylor University’s Homecoming weekend. We feel that the shopping traffic will increase due to the additional travelers to Waco for Homecoming events.
The criteria by which merchants are selected for the Market include the quality and uniqueness of the merchandise, price point, booth decoration, general display, and promptness in returning ALL completed information. Please note that we will NOT be accepting samples this year, only photographs. Each merchant should have at least four photos attached to their application. Photos should be of the merchandise being sold or the setup of the booth. Please note, that although we try our best to avoid merchants selling duplicate items/merchandise, we cannot guarantee exclusivity.
Application Deadline is May 1, 2018.
If you are selected to be a merchant, you will be sent an invitation letter and contract packet. Booth assignments will be made after the selection process is complete and both the signed contracts and booth deposits have been received. Please note that merchants are also required to submit gift certificates to their booths, valid only for that weekend that equal $100.00 (five $ 20 certificates).
We are pleased to be able to offer you this sales opportunity for 2018 and look forward to hearing from you soon. Please do not hesitate to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions that you might have.
