The 17th Annual Cary Academy Holiday Shoppe will feature 100 vendors with a variety of offerings including jewelry, home décor, gift items, clothing, accessories and food from artisans, hand-crafters, and retail ventures. Every effort is made to minimize duplicate merchandise. The Cary Academy Holiday Shoppe is a fundraising event for need-based scholarships and community outreach.
Our show is held just before Thanksgiving when the buying frenzy for the holidays begins. Our customers are not just window-shopping; our they’re are buying!
The Shoppe is well-organized and supports our vendors with a Hospitality Lounge offering coffee and snacks throughout the show, and support packing up at the end of the show.
The Shoppe draws more than 8,000+ shoppers! Over 17,000 SAVE THE DATE postcards mailed, and we market extensively through social media.

The Application Process
In order to avoid duplication of merchandise, vendor participation in the show is by invitation only. Interested vendors must submit an online application to be reviewed by the Vendor Selection Committee. Vendors chosen by the committee will receive invitations with contracts which must be returned with half payment to reserve a spot in the Holiday Shoppe. When full payment is received a specific location will be reserved. Invitations are extended on a rolling basis for as long as space is available. Certain merchandise categories fill quickly.
