The Social Book presents "The Social Market!" 2017

Social Book MARKET Logo 2017 W -o CitiesThe time has come!   The Social Book is proud to announce “The Social Market”—an exciting new event for Houston. Our Fall & Holiday Shopping Extravaganza, hosted by Bayou City Event Center, will showcase Houston’s most notable purveyors of gifts, fashion, jewelry, accessories, fine food and desserts, luxury goods and more. Guests will stroll among the booths of our amazing vendors and shop for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, etc., as well as consult with event industry professionals about the best of what will be hot and trending for the fall and holiday event season. The Friday evening (June 16) invitation-only VIP preview event will feature adult beverages and three hours of Priority Shopping from 7-10 p.m. Saturday June 17’s all-day (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) extravaganza will be family-friendly and open to the public with paid admission, benefiting The Mission of Yahweh, a homeless shelter for women and children.

We are so proud to have secured as our event coordinators and designers, the firm of Rexberry Luxury Weddings & Events, whose years of expertise will be invaluable in creating an atmosphere for all vendors to succeed. We will be promoting the Event to The Social Book’s extensive, proprietary mailing list and social media presence and are expecting between 500 and 1,000 guests into Bayou City Event Center’s beautiful, carpeted Ballroom to sample (and purchase!) your goods and services.
