Formerly Mistletoe to Go, we are pleased to introduce our new shopping venture – The JLCM Market. The products sold through the market are fundraisers to benefit the efforts of the JLCM in our community.
Currently, the JLCM Market is proud to offer three seasonal sales in fall, winter and spring.
Fall – Beautiful mums baskets in a variety of sizes and colors are available.
Winter – Poinsettias, beautiful bows and movie baskets are great for your holiday gifts.
Spring – Just in time for Mothers Day and Teacher appreciation, our movie night gift baskets are always a hit!
To receive more information about these sales, please e-mail Chair Lindsey Bailey or call the JLCM office at (770) 422-5266.
What about the Mistletoe Market?
For 24 years, the Junior League of Cobb—Marietta has enthusiastically hosted the Mistletoe Market. With the commitment of its members, vendors and sponsors, the JLCM has raised thousands of dollars that has proudly been given back to the women and children of the Cobb community.
In the Summer of 2014, it was announced that the Cobb County Civic Center, traditionally where the Mistletoe Market is held, would be closed for renovation beginning in March 2015. This renovation is expected take approximately one year to complete.
What this meant for the JLCM is that a venue would not be available for the Mistletoe Market in October 2015. After many discussions, it was decided to proceed with a new fundraiser. The JLCM is excited for this change and can’t wait to begin a new tradition with the Gingerbread House: Competition & Showcase.
During this year’s Gala, JLCM President Carey Merritt paid tribute to the Mistletoe Market, and honored those women who have served as Chair of the event. Click here to see a video of the presentation.
