2017 Shop-Local Showcase by Parker’s Vendor Events

Saturday, February 18, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

It’s time to treat yo’ self, Houston! Come out to The Westin Galleria for a little post-Valentine’s shopping on Post Oak and support the city’s thriving small business community at the same time.

The 2017 ShopLocal Showcase was created to build connections between Houston-area consumers and the companies, consultants and crafters serving them. Showcasing a handpicked “market” of 50+ vendors, all exemplifying the best in local artisans, artists and makers of fashion, food, home and beauty products…and much much more.

As a special thank-you for their support, all attendees can automatically be entered to win more than $1000 in raffled prize items provided by participating vendors.

This is the inaugural year for Parker’s Vendor Showcase (PVS), a cause-oriented event planning organization. Structured around a single, annual collaboration of locally based companies, crafters and consultants, PVS was founded by millennial triple-entrepreneur Tiffany Parker.

The event is dedicated to gathering Houston’s growing small business community and connecting locally conscious consumers with sellers from around the city. By buying from vendors based in the Greater Houston or Gulf Coast Regions, area residents stand to benefit from the economic incubation effects of active participation in the local marketplace.

Showcasing a highly curated “market” of local sellers in the very heart and hub of the city’s largest shopping center(s), the Houston Galleria and Uptown Houston District, creates a unique opportunity for buyers. Event attendees can, for a single afternoon, browse and choose local goods in a landmark setting famous for its vast selection of global goods.

As an owner herself, Parker created the concept behind PVS as part of her established personal mission — to help create support and structure for Houston’s thriving (and striving) small business community.
