Hello and welcome to the Lee’s Summit West Holiday Mart! 2020 will be our 11th year holding this event, which is organized by the LSW Journalism Parents’ Group. Last year, we had over 1500 shoppers in attendance! With your help, we’re looking forward to making this year’s event the best one yet. All proceeds from this event directly benefit the News & Online Print, Broadcasting & Video Technology and Yearbook programs at Lee’s Summit West.

REGISTRATION: Priority is given to returning vendors from the previous year and then will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Whenever possible, returning vendors will be placed in the same booth as the previous year unless requested otherwise or they reserved a different sized booth or a booth in a different location.
We reserve the right to limit similar vendors and will only allow one representative per direct sales company (i.e.: Paparazzi, Mary Kay, Thirty-One Gifts, Pampered Chef, etc).
CANCELLATION POLICY: Booth reservations cancelled 30 days prior to the event will receive a full refund minus processing fees. After that time, if a replacement can be found for your booth, refunds will be subject to a $10 cancellation fee plus processing fees. No refunds will be given for late cancellations if the booth cannot be filled.

UNLOADING & PARKING: Please review the map: http://www.lswholidaymart.com/?p=345
Do not park your cars in the unloading section. Unload your vehicle and then park your car before bringing your merchandise inside. If you want to park and unload in the first row of the parking section, that is fine. Students will be there to help you. If you have a dolly, please bring it as we will have a limited amount. Once you have unloaded, park in the back section of the parking lot to allow shoppers to park closer to the entrance.
