Elegant Elf Vendor Information

The Sandy Springs Society is excited to present the fourth annual Elegant Elf Marketplace, to be held on Saturday and Sunday, November 15 and 16, 2014 at Lake Forest Elementary School in Sandy Springs, Georgia.

We are continuing to increase our marketing campaign to attract more shoppers from the Cities of Sandy Springs, Dunwoody and Roswell as well as a broader campaign focused on shoppers from Metro Atlanta.  We also plan to continue with our partnership with several local schools to reach their families as well as our work with the Sandy Springs/Perimeter Chamber of Commerce and the Sandy Springs Hospitality and Tourism Bureau to promote our market throughout the state and region.

Again this year, the Marketplace will be located in the recently built Lake Forest Elementary school that will give us a large gym, cafeteria, lobby and hall space all on one floor.  We will have a staggered load-in all day Friday, November 14th and if necessary, early Saturday morning, November 15th.

During the sale, we will have ample parking for shoppers and ample offsite parking with a shuttle for vendors and volunteers.

Just like last year, we will not have pipe and drape, but will be clearly taping the area for each vendor.

We will have tables and electricity available for an additional charge.

We will have festive music, a welcoming vendor hospitality room and a supportive friendly staff of volunteers.

We plan to utilize donated items from our vendors for raffles and/or auction opportunities to add excitement and vendor interest to the event.

The Sandy Springs Society is continuing to seek out superior craftsmen, artisans, and exhibitors from the region and the country in order to present a carefully chosen marketplace of unique, specialty, quality items that bring the best of local and national vendors together.  It is now time to start the selection process for this exciting holiday event.

The Society is presently accepting applications from craftsmen and vendors, both local and national, for The Elegant Elf Marketplace 2014 to be held on November 15 – 16, 2014.

Vendor space is still available in various categories.
