Disclosure: This post is in partnership with the Junior League of Indianapolis.

The Junior League of Indianapolis is excited to bring Holiday Mart back to the community for another year! With more than 90 vendors exhibiting at this year’s event, the JLI is hoping to see 10,000 attendees to help the organization raise funds for future projects and programs within the Indianapolis community. Holiday Mart provides an exclusive shopping experience that features small businesses selling everything from clothing, jewelry, and handbags to food, art, children’s items and more! Plus a variety of special events through the weekend that are perfect for the family. Holiday Mark is managed by Junior League of Indianapolis volunteers. Community participation in the event helps make it possible for the JLI to continue to serve the community.
