The holidays and shopping go hand in hand. For many, shopping with friends and family for gifts is an annual tradition. And for truly savvy shoppers, Fort Bend Junior Service League’s (FBJSL) Sugar Plum Market, presented by Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, is the ultimate shop ‘til you drop extravaganza.
This year’s “Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland” themed event will be held on Thursday, November 3rd from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Friday, November 4, 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, November 5, f10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Stafford Centre Performing Arts Theatre and Convention Center. Proceeds from the 2011 Sugar Plum Market will benefit local Fort Bend County charities.
In lieu of our fashion shows and luncheons, we will be adding vendor spaces and increasing the shopping opportunities for guests with more than 100 vendors. The 2011 Sugar Plum Market will feature a wide variety of new and returning vendors from across Texas. One very popular vendor returning to the market this year is Latte Tots. Jamie Rohlich of Latte Tots remarked, “Sugar Plum Market is my favorite market I do because everybody comes with their girlfriends ready to shop and have a fantastic time. The whole ambiance is fun and you forget you are there to work! “ With the expanded vendor space, opportunities for additional vendors are still available.
Not only have the shopping opportunities been expanded, but so have the Preview Night hours. Preview Night will be back for a second year with extended hours held on Thursday, November 3 for all the early shoppers wanting to get a head start and have a night out with the girls. This year a special VIP hour from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. will be provided to all sponsors of the Market. For a $60 ticket, preview night shoppers get an exclusive night of shopping while tasting delicious samples from area restaurants. In addition, they will receive two drink tickets. The Preview Night Ticket is also good for readmission to the Market on Friday and Saturday, for even more shopping.
Individuals and businesses wishing to be featured in front of over 6,000 anticipated patrons may sponsor the Market as well as place advertisements in the program received by all attendees. Sponsorships are still available with opportunities ranging from $250 to $5,000. Preview Night Tickets will be $60 each. General Admission tickets will be $10 each.
