Virtual Tinsel & Treasures 2020 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is Junior League of Lafayette’s Tinsel & Treasures holiday market happening this September?

The traditional Tinsel & Treasures holiday market will not physically be taking place; however, we are launching a two-week virtual market for the safe shopping of our guests, merchants and members. We will continue to offer our traditional Sparkle & Shine raffle and online auction.

What is a virtual shopping market?

We invite shoppers to visit our website juniorleagueoflafayette.com between September 13-26 for our merchant list that includes a link to their website and/or social media accounts. You will also have access to a Facebook group to see all the exciting products from our merchants.

How much are tickets to the virtual market?

Enjoy virtual shopping with our merchants FREE! You will find our merchant list with many of the merchants you shop from at market each year as well as new ones.

Every year I visit the same merchant to get my items. How can I contact them to purchase more of their products?

Each virtual market vendor will have its website/digital platform and contact information listed, and you will be able to purchase from them directly.

What is the benefit to being a merchant in the virtual market?

For only $250, you will be listed on the Tinsel & Treasures virtual market website where shoppers can purchase your goods directly from your website or other digital medium. You will also be featured at least once on Junior League of Lafayette’s social media platforms to include Facebook and Instagram. Please contact Katherine Riemann at merchants@juniorleagueoflafayette.com for more information.

Can I be a listed merchant even if I was not initially registered to be in the holiday market?

Yes! Because this is a virtual market, we have decided to reopen our merchant applications. For more information or to apply, visit our merchant application page.

Can I donate to Junior League of Lafayette since there will not be proceeds from ticket sales this year?

Yes and thank you for your generosity to help us continue our mission of improving our community and training volunteers! Please contact sponsorship@juniorleagueoflafayette.com.

Do you still have sponsorships opportunities available?

There are several ways to sponsor and for more information on how you can become a sponsor, please contact: Dr. Ashley Thom or Laura Rafferty, Sponsorship Committee Co-chairs at 337.988.2739 or sponsorship@juniorleagueoflafayette.com.

Will you still have the special events that the regular market would have?

We are in the process of continuing with those Tinsel & Treasures traditions of Ladies Night and Children’s Event, but in a different format. Stay tuned for more information once we have those details to share with you!
