Can't be a vendor but still interested in promoting your business? Back by popular demand, we are offering local businesses the opportunity to showcase merchandise or business paraphernalia by decorating Christmas trees placed throughout SiMT. You will be able to decorate a tree however you would like, displaying items and wares from your business, or nicely decorated with your business name.

This is a wonderful way to advertise throughout Merry Marketplace weekend!

To secure your tree, please submit the attached Tree Reservations Form by November 1st. We will accept up to 40 applications on a first come, first serve basis. Trees will be decorated during setup hours on Wednesday, November 9th and Thursday, November 10th at the SiMT Building at Florence Darlington Tech.
