The new shopping experience in building one of the Tupelo Furniture Market has been dubbed The Tupelo Gift & Accessories Market, and it is now an integral part of the Tupelo Furniture Market, which opens Thursday, Jan. 5, and runs through Sunday, Jan. 8. There are 100 companies exhibiting in the expansive great hall, and close to 28 showrooms will be filled with hundreds of furniture brands, home décor items, appliances, jewelry, clothing and other fashion-related products that the public and many of the furniture retailers in attendance will want to purchase. This year’s event will offer incredible discounts on furniture, lamps, art, area rugs, estate jewelry, furs, specialty clothing and more! “This event provides the perfect venue for furniture store retailers searching for smaller companies that offer unique furniture, home accessories, gifts, fashion and other items that might round out their inventory,” said Kevin J. Seddon, president of the Tupelo Furniture Market. “Many of these small companies, which often sell hand-crafted furniture and accessories in smaller lots, want to sell to both the trade and the public, and we allow them to do so. The public is allowed to attend this event so they also can take advantage of this rare opportunity to purchase product at below retail and even wholesale pricing!” According to Seddon, the first 100 attendees each morning will receive a gift tote bag with an assortment of items inside each one. In addition, a number of parties and entertainment are planned Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoon from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Tupelo Gift & Accessories Market times are: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday; 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday; 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday; and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday. Gift and accessory retail store owners, designers and interior decorators may shop all six buildings at the Market which will have more than 400 companies and more gift and accessory companies than ever before.
