VENDORS!...

Where do I begin??


This year's event was OFF-THE-CHARTS-GREAT because of all of YOU! This would not be the show that is has become without YOU! We could prep, plan and prepare all we want to, but without great vendors, this could never be a great show. We are growing something here.....something that could become spectacular and YOU are an integral part of that!


While the beneficiaries of this show are the students and faculty of TJ (don't forget, your fees go ENTIRELY to them!),.... the core of what is great about this show is celebrating all of YOU!


  • We celebrate your talent!.....
  • We celebrate that you are locally based and in supporting YOU, we are supporting our local economy!...
  • We celebrate that you are all a part of the fabric that makes up the ART/ENTREPRENEUR SCENE of this community and by supporting you, we are helping to support the arts and the development of locally-owned, unique businesses! That is extremely important to all of us!


This show is a CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS and OUR LOCAL SCENE and so, it is a CELEBRATION OF YOU! I can't thank you enough for being a part of that!

A VERY HAPPY AND SUCCESSFUL NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!

All the best,
