2016 Boutique Vendor Information

       

The Junior League of Winston-Salem will be hosting the seventh annual shopping extravaganza, Boutique, on December 9-10, 2016 at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and we would like you to be a part of it! With over 1,000 members and marking our 94th year, the Junior League of Winston-Salem is committed to making this holiday market the premiere shopping event in the city. This event, along with our other fundraisers, makes it possible for the Junior League of Winston-Salem to support and promote many projects throughout the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County community.

Boutique 2016 promises to reveal new aspects of our holiday theme and focus on extensive marketing leading up to the weekend, while extending genuine appreciation and hospitality to our vendors. With each passing year, we strengthen the relationships with our return vendors and we appreciate their partnership to better Boutique and our community. We happily incorporate their feedback and consider our vendors with every market decision we make throughout the planning process. It’s because of this partnership that some vendors consider Boutique to be one of the friendliest markets. The Junior League of Winston-Salem looks forward to Boutique 2016 and seeing our old friends return to our market, but we also look forward to making new friends this year and hope you will be one of them!
