Back by popular demand, the Holly Jolly Holiday Bash is returning to Three Star Mall this Saturday. Since the success of the first holiday bash two weeks ago, Natalie Parker of 21 Rays Mobile Boutique was asked to organize another one before the holidays.

Considering the great turnout of vendors and shoppers, Parker started organizing this weekend’s event the day of the original holiday bash. She offered a spot to the same vendors to return and at least 15 have reserved a spot with others still in the application process. Vendors that were on the waiting list have also been offered a spot.

“Why not?” said Parker about why she wanted to do another one. She said it gives vendors another selling opportunity before Christmas, and it allows shoppers to get some quick last-minute things. 

Children will be able to write letters to Santa and they will also receive a goodie-bag with snacks and candy. Even the kids who wrote letters at the last holiday bash will be offered a goodie-bag. Children can also color Christmas coloring pages. 

There will be more giveaways with 21 Rays gift bags, gift cards, gift certificates and gift boxes. A random person will receive one of these through a drawing at Parker’s boutique.

The craft fair brought much business to participating vendors and to the mall, which has been hurt by the closing of two big department stores. 

The Holly Jolly Holiday Bash will be this Saturday, Dec. 19, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Three Star Mall. Parker said this would be something she would want to return in other seasons as well, but she would need assistance.
