Holiday show plans need your help

Published 12:00 am Friday, October 10, 2008

Good morning Miss-Lou readers! As the holiday season approaches, we at the Natchez Convention Center want to kick off the shopping season with a Holiday Arts and Crafts Show, and we need you.

As we are putting the final touches on the show, we still have a few booths available. So if you make jewelry, candles, bird houses, potpourri, picture frames, hair bows, kiddie toys, bowls, floral arrangements, wooden shelves, wreaths, gift baskets or anything in between, book your spot today. This is going to be a fantastic show filled with entertainment and fun for everyone.

We would also like to invite any non-profit organization to get a booth for a bake sale or to have a cake walk, face painting or moon walk for the children. What better way to raise some money?

Also, scrapbooking classes will be hosted throughout the weekend by local scrapbooker, Pam Frank. Her expertise in scrapbooking is amazing, so you’ll learn a lot and make something that will last a lifetime.

If you are interested in teaching a class as well, come on down. We’d love it. We want it make this a fun-filled weekend for everyone. Kids can go to classes while parents shop.

A new twist to the show this year will be cheerleading.

We want your squad to perform during the show. A special section will be set aside for you. We know how hard you work, and we want you to be recognized.

From AYA sponsors to varsity coaches, call me if you want to cheer at the Natchez Holiday Arts and Crafts Show.

Booths are 10 by 10, and they are $100 each.

The Natchez Holiday Arts and Crafts Show will be Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 8-9, with a full day of setup on Friday, Nov. 7.

We are shooting for a deadline of Oct. 15 for vendors and exhibitors to apply.

So get busy creating your unique, one-of-a-kind items and call the Natchez Convention Center at 601.442.8850 or e-mail at
