Merry Marketplace is The Junior League of Florence’s first major event each year. Merry Marketplace offers a fun-filled weekend of boutique-like shopping, excellent music, live/silent auctions, and delicious food! For 2016, the Junior League is proud to be holding this event at the Florence-Darlington Technical College’s Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology building. We look forward to working closely with FDTC to make this year the most successful marketplace yet!

Back by popular demand, we are offering local businesses the opportunity to showcase merchandise or business paraphernalia by decorating Christmas trees placed throughout SiMT. You will be able to decorate a tree however you would like, displaying items and wares from your business, or nicely decorated with your business name.
This is a wonderful way to advertise throughout Merry Marketplace weekend!
