Christmas Collection at The Square

Dear Christmas Collection Vendor,

THANK YOU for being a part of Christmas Collection at The Square!

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the staff, I regret to inform you that after careful consideration we have decided to retire our annual Christmas Collection event.

For 40 years Christmas Collection has kicked off the holiday season by offering the community quality handmade items from vendors such as yourself. Some of you may remember a time when lines of people stretched out our doors in order to get into this magical event. Over the last ten years we have seen a steady decline of attendees and sales for both you and Paris Gibson Square. Because of the unique way we handle the inventory, set-up and sales of your items, in addition to the rising costs of advertising, prop maintenance, staffing and general operating expenses, we have determined that Christmas Collection can no longer sustain itself in its current state.

We are diligently working to create an event that will replace Christmas Collection but still offer vendors a way to showcase their quality handmade items. We would like your input as we move forward and ask that you take a few minutes to CLICK HERE and take a quick survey.

I would personally like to thank each one of you for supporting our annual Christmas Collection and I hope to work with you again in the future.  

Sincerely,

Aaron Kueffler
