Market Directory & Dates 2017

These are the markets that I suggest you add to your calendar of possible ones to attend. I’ve listed them in order of my preference based on

  • Ease of use and best organized by category
  • Number of vendors in our market and number of new ones added each time
  • Facility/Travel
  • Transportation/Hotels

Las Vegas Gift & Home Market

By far my favorite to attend. Great facility, great atmosphere and multiple new vendors every time. It’s been growing steadily and is one of the largest in the US right now. We go to both Vegas dates.

  • 2017 Dates
    • January 22-26, 2017
    • July 30-August 3, 2017

 

Dallas Gift & Home Market

Another favorite of ours for finding new and exciting items. We typically hit this one in January for our holiday buys. They have a great cash and carry area full of vendors that you can also order wholesale from.

  • 2017 Dates for the large markets – smaller ones available throughout the year
    • January 18-24, 2017
    • June 21-27

 

Atlanta Gift & Home Market

Atlanta is packed with vendors and is a great show. Many long-time shop owners attend the Atlanta market. I’ve only listed it third because I like the other locations more.
