The Junior League of Nashville is ringing in its third annual ’Tis the Season Holiday Marketplace on November 19-21, 2009 at The Factory at Franklin. This three-day event includes over 75 invited merchants from across the country offering quality merchandise including home décor, food, clothing, toys, jewelry and much more.
Based on the success of last year’s marketplace, more than 4,500 attendees are expected in 2009. To keep everyone in the holiday spirit, ’Tis the Season features several special events such as the Sustainer’s Preview Breakfast, Candy Cane Cocktails, Breakfast with Santa, and Santa Snaps.
“’Tis the Season is not only a great way to check everyone off your holiday shopping list but proceeds help the Junior League of Nashville fund many non-profit organizations throughout the Middle Tennessee community,” said Junior League of Nashville President Stacy Sullivan- Karrels. “This is a great way to get in the spirit of the season and give back to the community at the same time.”
