Mistletoe Merchants

Dear Prospective Merchant,

The Junior League of Tyler, Inc. and the 2017 Mistletoe & Magic committee are excited to begin the merchant selection process for this year’s show.  Our unique shopping experience will be located at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler, Texas.  The membership and committee will host the 39th annual Mistletoe & Magic Wednesday, November 8th through Saturday, November 11th, 2017.

 The Mistletoe & Magic Merchant Committee will review all merchant applications. Below are factors that are considered for selection.

  1. Quality and type of product in each category (jewelry, food, clothing, etc.) and price points.
  2. Presentation of merchandise submitted (current merchandise photos, previous booth photos and samples are required with application).  Each merchant should provide a unique shopping experience – as if you were walking into a specialty shop.
  3. Promptness in returning ALL completed information.
  4. Rotation of previous participants with new merchants in the same category.

If you are interested in participating in Mistletoe & Magic 2017, please follow the instructions at the bottom of this page.  All applications will be presented to the Merchant Committee. Mistletoe & Magic reserves the right to limit the amount of similar merchandise.  If accepted to the show, only items listed on your application will be allowed. Changes must be requested in writing to the Merchant Chairman. Subleasing of merchandise on consignment will not be allowed unless requested in writing and approved by the Merchant Committee. We reserve the right to accept all or part of your merchandise.  Previous participation in Mistletoe & Magic does not guarantee selection.  Booth size and location is determined at the discretion of the Merchant Committee and on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be advised of your booth size and location within the month preceding the show.

The Junior League of Tyler receives NO percentage from merchant booth sales. 

The show application will be available online from February 1st – April 30th, 2017. Committee selection begins Friday, April 14, 2017.  Those applications received by Friday, April 1st, 2017 will be notified of their status by the end of May.  Applications received after April 1st will be notified in a timely manner and/or as booth space becomes available.  All applications, booth photos and samples MUST be submitted for an application to be complete.

Thank you for your interest in Mistletoe & Magic. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Jessica Phillips, Merchant Co-Chair
