Welcome Merchants, 

The event this year will be held November 19 – 23, 2014 at the Palmer Events Center, with attendance expected to exceed 30,000.

A Christmas Affair is a juried show of merchants from across the country.  Space in each category is limited in order to ensure a variety of merchandise and to allow merchants to maximize their full sales potential.  Please complete the online application as soon as possible in order to be considered for selection in our show.  Applicants will receive email notification of their acceptance/wait list/decline status to our show by April 30th.

Application deadline is March 11, 2014.

Photos of your booth and samples are required with the application.

Please note the following:

  • Booths are only nine (9) feet deep.  Please plan accordingly. For a complete list of Booth Sizes and Rates, click here.
  • A prepaid mailing or call ticket is required if you would like your samples returned.  We cannot accept cash or check for return postage.
  • A single vendor may not apply and then invite other vendors to participate.
  • All merchants are required to pay a $25 non-refundable application fee with your samples.
  • Booth locations are limited to quantity.  We try to accommodate every merchant’s requested booth size and location but are not always able to do so.
  • If accepted into our show, our merchant contract requires the donation of eight (8) - $25 gift certificates (created by the JLA) be submitted.   
  • Donated samples are not considered a part of this obligation.


We look forward to receiving your application.   Please feel free to contact us at 512-467-8982 ext. 262 or if you have any additional questions.
