2017 ‘Neath the Wreath:  Shop ’til You Drop, Then Crawl

How fantastic would it feel to complete your Christmas shopping by the second week of November?

Imagine heading into the holiday season without the burden of an unfinished gift list. You might actually have time to enjoy the holiday season. You could binge-watch Hallmark Christmas movies instead of spending hours at the crowded mall. You could bake gingerbread cookies from scratch like you’ve always wanted to, or have wine with friends at Christmas in the Square!

November 8-12, 2017, twelve thousand shoppers will participate in a special holiday gift market during Junior League of Collin County’s annual ‘Neath the Wreath Holiday Market at The Plano Event Center. They’ll likely complete most, if not all, of their holiday shopping.

Kicking off the 22nd year, this five-day holiday market features the best in unique holiday and home décor, ladies clothing and accessories, gifts, jewelry, children’s items and gourmet food from over 100 carefully selected merchants. You could knock out a whole lotta shopping in one evening, then head home with a bunch of shopping bags (that’s always fun) and call it DONE!

The net proceeds raised from ‘Neath the Wreath ticket sales and other events held throughout the year are used to benefit the projects and initiatives of the Junior League of Collin County. JLCC is comprised of nearly 1,000 women dedicated to transforming Collin County through volunteerism and community leadership. In 40 years, JLCC has contributed 750,619 volunteer hours and $7,252,726 in direct impact funds to the community through over 150 non-profit organizations serving Collin County. The ‘Neath the Wreath Holiday Gift Market is their largest fundraising event of the year.

The highly-anticipated event begins the evening of Wednesday, November 8th with Ladies Night Out, which offers the exclusive opportunity to pre-shop the ‘Neath the Wreath market, enjoy music, sips and bites, and indulge in a silent auction. This pre-event sells out quickly! If you miss your chance to buy a ticket for Ladies Night Out, not to worry because the four days which follow for general ticket holders will be extraordinary as well.

‘Neath the Wreath is the perfect way to kick-off your holiday season! Gorgeous holiday decor, music, gourmet food…and shopping…so much shopping! Grab your friends, and purchase a ticket for your entrance into the hottest, holiday hooplah this side of Thanksgiving.
