This "Resources" web page includes general information for Merchants (past, present and future).

You can also email us if you have any questions or need more information.

2016 Merchant Fact Sheet Click here for a fact sheet of basic information (show schedule, booth sizes and fees, etc.)

Merchant Photos If you were unable to submit photos for the Merchant Jury or with your original application, please email them to holidayshops-merchants@jlw.org; indicate "photos attached for application sent earlier." We will be using your photos to help promote the wonderful items we will have at Holiday Shops.

Booth Sizes/Preference If you are accepted to our 2016 Holiday Shops, you will receive an email to submit your booth size preference. Once your booth request is confirmed by Holiday Shops, links to make your booth deposit and final payments will appear on your Merchant Home Page. Please contact webmaster@jlw.org if you were accepted but do not have payment links or did not receive a contract to complete and return to Holiday Shops. Please contact holidayshops-merchants@jlw.org if you've not received an email from Holiday Shops regarding your booth request submission.

2016 Merchant Contract The 2016 Contract is provided to merchants via email upon acceptance to the show. Contracts are final once counter-signed by JLW; booths are assigned once all booth fees (deposit and balance) are paid in full.

Merchant Handbook and Exhibitor Attachment The 2016 Handbook will be available this summer and will be provided to merchants via email once you are accepted to the show and all contracts and booth fees have been received by JLW.

Form to Remit Washington, DC Sales Tax Collected During the November 2016 Show Merchants at our 58th Annual Holiday Shops in November 2016 will be required to submit a DC form along with the DC Sales Tax collected. Merchants should submit this DC form along with the DC Sales Tax collected (6% for goods in DC). The DC Sales Tax Form will be provided to Merchants directly once accepted to the show.
