Imagine shopping with and supporting Mississippi retailers from Tupelo to Biloxi, Vicksburg to Meridian, Tunica to Natchez—all under one roof, during one amazing weekend…
You don’t have to imagine it! Join Mississippi Magazine as we present the third annual Mercantile Mississippi shopping event, May 3-4, at the Mississippi Trade Mart in Jackson. Nearly 200 booths of apparel, shoes, jewelry, home décor, gifts, art, gourmet goodies, and more await you at what might very well be the largest and most varied gathering of Mississippi retailers ever assembled in one place.
There is something for everyone, whether you’re looking for graduation presents, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gifts, teacher happies, or just some retail therapy for yourself! And while you’re there, you can take a break and enjoy one of our many informative presentations—easy entertaining tips by Patty Roper, wedding planning advice from Fresh Ink’s panel of experts, sorority recruitment information from Welcome Home Sorority Packets, dorm décor inspiration by Dawn Thomas of After Five Designs, and a fashion show featuring looks from Mercantile boutiques. And don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the guys! On Saturday, there will also be a presentation on small business and water fowling by Josh Raggio of Raggio Custom Calls and B.C. Rogers of Wren & Ivy.
If you prefer to beat the crowds, don’t miss our special Blue Suede Breakfast early shopping event. For only $20, you will be admitted at 8 a.m.—two hours before the general public, and you’ll enjoy breakfast fare provided by Fresh Cut Floral and Catering and entertainment by an Elvis tribute artist. You can keep that ticket for entrance the next day as well!
