Shelby's Creations

In 2012 Holly Jolly was started to grow an event to promote creative businesses.  Over the years we have succeeded not only in increasing the size of the event, increasing the attendees but also continuing to grow the vendor community. 

 

​We will remain at 200 vendors with a full entertainment schedule and food choices for everyone.   The event is now a juried fair that continues to limit the amount of vendors in a category.  The other parts of our decision are based on product quality, booth display, pricing, uniqueness, social influence and  creativity.

 

We do start the application process very early to allow time for planning, food, entertainment and marketing.  So PLEASE fill out the vendor interest form so you will be notified right away.  

 

​Look forward to meeting each and everyone of you! Stop by the fair and say hi and check it out!

 

With cheer,

​Kim Kelley
