The Junior League of the City of New York (NYJL) announces its 50th Annual Golden Tree holiday shopping event. This year, we will be hosting an in-person event from November 8-13, 2021, supplemented by a virtual event from November 8-13, 2021.
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to apply to participate in this year’s event as a vendor. By showcasing your products, you will reach all of the New York Junior League’s 2,800 volunteers and their supporters. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are offering both in-person and virtual shopping sessions.
This three-day event is divided into individual sessions. Vendors are offered the opportunity to participate in one of our three sessions or a combination of multiple sessions:
- Session one (evening only) will take place on Thursday, November 11
- Session two (day and evening) will take place on Friday, November 12
- Session three (day only) will take place on Saturday, November 13
Please pay close attention to the “opportunities for participation” section below as it details the requirements for all participating vendors and the associated costs.
In addition to our in-person event, we welcome vendors to highlight their merchandise via our online virtual shopping via "virtual booths."
The NYJL will market the participation of vendors in the weeks leading up to Golden Tree, including linking to and promoting vendors’ websites as well as highlighting vendors during appropriate events throughout the week.
Please complete your Application via this web form and specify the sessions(s) for which you are applying to participate. Merchants are invited to submit pictures of their work, samples and/or other materials for consideration with the Application.
We will be accepting and approving applications on a rolling basis. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org. A representative from the Golden Tree committee will contact you to finalize/confirm your participation after your application is received.
Thank you again for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to Golden Tree!
