Become a Merchant

Welcome Merchants! Our event this year will be held November 3-5, 2017 at the Abilene Convention Center. Throughout the weekend, thousands of guests are expected to attend our annual fundraising event. By becoming a merchant, you help support the Mission of the Junior League of Abilene as we make a difference in our community. Your contribution directly supports the Junior League sponsored projects: Backpacks for Kids, C.A.L.F. (Children’s Art & Literacy Festival), Community Partners, Kids in the Kitchen, Suds Buds, as well as countless other local non-profit agencies and outreach programs served through our PAVE project.

NOTE: You must first apply to be considered as a Christmas Carousel merchant. With your application, a merchant account and profile on our site will be created. You will use these credentials to login each year for updates, resources and the annual application process.  You will receive email instructions after review of your application.
