Mistletoe Market offers unique shopping experience

By Macy Reeves for the FCT


The RHS Marching Hundred Color Guard will be hosting its third annual Mistletoe Market Nov. 21, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the RHS Band Room.

The vendor registration fee is $40.

People are encouraged to shop and help support the Color Guard; there will also be door prizes.

The Market gives local businesses, artists and crafters space to sell their items and also provides an opportunity for entrepreneurs to publicize their names. The vendors at the Market sell merchandise such as jewelry, home decor, garden decor, custom clothing and cakes. This year Allison Pinkard Photography will be there with Santa to take photos.

Not only does the Market provide service for the community business owners, artists and crafters, but the profits from the Market help the Color Guard financially.

“It helps us purchase our own equipment instead of getting money out of the band parent account; it’s one more way we can help ourselves instead of asking for money. We would rather raise our own money than put an extra stress on the band parents,” said Mitzi McNutt, Color Guard sponsor.

Current confirmed vendors are: Origami Owl, Mary Kay, Jessica Peppers, Doodlin’ Dots, Strings, Premier Jewelry, Initial Outfitters by Kristi, Monica Moon, SAR Creations, Plunder Jewelry, Thirty-one, Young Living Essential Oils, Younique and Allison Pinkard Photography with Santa.
