A CALL FOR POTENTIAL VENDORS TO JOIN GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL’S ACCLAIMED ANNUAL HOLIDAY SHOPPING EVENT
“”Grand Central Terminal is hosting a call to artists in April for its 2019 Holiday Fair. Artisans are invited to the Terminal to show samples of their products and receive feedback from Holiday Fair merchandising consultants. The focus for this year’s Holiday Fair is on locally made and American-made merchandise. Products are required to be made by hand. Highly selective about the artists chosen to participate, planners spend the year looking for unique vendors. A range of products and price points guarantees that New Yorkers, commuters, and tourists alike can find interesting gift items for others as well as covet-worthy items for themselves. Each year, products include artwork, clothing for all ages, men’s and women’s accessories, children’s clothing and toys, and home goods.
More than 1 million shoppers visit Grand Central Terminal each day of the Holiday Fair. Artisans who participated in recent fairs not only have sold high volumes of product, but also have landed high-profile wholesale accounts with major retailers, sold pieces to museums, broadened their retail client bases, and have been profiled on local and national TV.
For this year, merchandising consultants are primarily interested in the following categories: men’s accessories, tabletop, children’s, home décor, pottery, glassware, art, photography, jewelry. Food products will not be evaluated at this time.””
