The Junior League of Tampa’s 15th annual Holiday Gift Market presented by Publix returns in 2018 featuring more specialty merchants and special events than ever before. This year’s event will include 200+ merchants from across the country including some of Tampa Bay’s most well-known companies such as Toffee to Go, Seventh Avenue Apothecary, Southerndoe and more; making it easier than ever to shop local.
This year’s expanded lineup of new merchants also includes The Junior League of Tampa’s fourth Young Entrepreneur Program (YEP) winner, Rebekah Philips, owner of PAWZ PUBLISHING. She is an author and artist of children’s books focused on overcoming fears. Each of her books is partnered with a stuffed animal to bring the book to life. Previous winners of the YEP grant include Ethos Roasters, Southerndoe, Base Culture and Old City Calligraphy.
Holiday Gift Market is one of The Junior League of Tampa’s largest fundraising events of the year. 100% of net proceeds from tickets sold will fund the League’s mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
