Laura Nivin over at Living Sassy came into the store and had some fun. We want to thank her for coming in and sharing her thoughts. We are extremely excited for the Holiday Ole’ Market. Check out what she had to say. Also check out her blog  sharing her love of bargain shopping, local events and food.

The Junior League of San Antonio’s  Holiday Ole’ Market is right around the corner. In the 22nd year, this one of kind shopping experience is taking on a Parisian flair.  Ooh, La La!

The title of this year’s event is “Joyeux Noel” and is set to begin on Thursday, October 15thand end on Sunday, October 18th at Freeman Coliseum’s Expo Hall.

I am a current sustainer and long time member of the JLSA. I also served on the Ole’ Market Committee and have first hand knowledge of how many hours it takes to host such a spectacular event. These ladies have already spent countless hours away from their families. This is all in support of raising money that will go back in the San Antonio community and non-profits that the Jr. League assists from year to year.

And they are counting on you to come out and shop with your family and friends to make it another rousing success! Now, y’all don’t make me beg you to go shopping!

When I looked on the website to see the list of this year’s merchants, I wanted to help promote a brand new attendee to Holiday Ole’ and welcome them to the JLSA family. Of course, with a name like  3 Sassy Chicks Boutique the choice was made for me! Sassy girls need to stick together!

This super cute boutique is located at 16350 Blanco Rd. in the shopping center right next to the Mission Ridge subdivision. They are owned by 2 friends  and one of their customers who have a love of clothing and design, hence the name and darling logo of their store. Another friend of theirs suggested that they apply to be a merchant at Holiday Ole’ because she thought their inventory would be a great fit for the annual event. They were thrilled to be chosen for this year’s market and were packing up items when I visited their store!

I took some of my neighbors’ daughters with me to show off some of the clothes that will be on display at Holiday Ole’. Francesca and Kinzie had so much fun in the store picking out what they wanted to wear. The store carries a variety of brands that appeal to all ages!

We took pictures right up the street at the Urban Ecology Center at Hardberger Park.  Not only are these two young ladies natural beauties and crazy smart,  they were scoping out the trails to use in their workouts during the soccer season! They both wanted to wear the mini swing long-sleeved dress for the pictures. And of course you have to complete this look with trendy boots.

Please visit Holiday Ole’ Market for information, ticket prices and more details about all the events that start this Thursday through Sunday. We wouldn’t want you to miss any sassy little detail.

From Girl’s Night Out, Pancake Pajama Parties and general shopping at over 115 local and nationwide merchants, there will be something for everyone to enjoy at this year’s event.

Women Supporting Women.

It’s why I am a sustainer of the JLSA.

Stay Sassy Y’all.
