Dear Artists and Merchants,
The Valdosta Junior Service League is thrilled to host Merry Marketplace 2018. This year’s show will be held November 17-18, at the James H. Rainwater Conference Center in Valdosta, Georgia.
Last year was a huge success with over 2,500 shoppers in two days!
Merry Marketplace (MMP) will feature over 100 artisans and boutique vendors from across the Southeast, and as always, proceeds will help fund dozens of Junior Service League community projects benefiting the health, education and welfare of Lowndes County and surrounding areas.
Early Bird Shopping is back again on Saturday morning. Shopping for these special ticket holders begins at 8 am and allows an early start to shopping with breakfast and coffee. We have also listened to your responses on the survey and will close shopping on Saturday at 5:30 pm instead of 6 pm.
We are excited to announce that due to the popular demand for our Character Breakfast will be adding a third breakfast on Saturday morning for parents and children to have breakfast with their favorite characters. In addition, Santa will be back at Merry Marketplace all weekend so children can visit with him and have their picture made.
We hope you will consider partnering with the Valdosta Junior Service League for this very special event. If you are interested, please click HERE for the Merchant Application. Please feel free to contact Nikki with any questions by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at Merry Marketplace 2018!
