I am super bummed I won’t be able to attend this year since I am out of town, but just wanted to remind all my local KC friends that the 26th Annual Holiday Mart is this weekend (October 17-20, 2013)!! :) The event is held at Bartle Hall. If you’ve never heard of this event before, well now you have and you really have been missing out. It is one massive shopping extravaganza for a great cause, hosted by the Junior League of Kansas City. Approximately $0.85 of every dollar raised through Holiday Mart goes directly back to the Kansas City community.
There will be 220 retailers at the event this year, including shops that sell:
- Women, men, and children’s fashion
- Home décor
- Health and beauty products
- Specialty foods
- Holiday items
- And more!
A couple years ago I went with a few girlfriends and we spent HOURS there and still didn’t get to visit all the shops. Trust me, you will be amazed!! For more details about Holiday Mart, you can visit their Facebook page. And if you need to kickstart your holiday shopping (don’t we all need a little extra push to get that started?), then this would be the perfect place to get some gifts!
