Thank you for being interested in our Holiday Shopping Event. This year, the event takes place on December 6, 2012 from 6pm - 9pm. It will be located at St. Ignatius College Prep in the Tully Dining Hall.
This Event is a fun evening of shopping and socializing while showcasing small businesses which are owned by members of the Ignatius community. Throughout the entire evening, there are opportunities to purchase items from businesses, win fantastic prizes donated by the businesses, and contribute to the Women’s Society annual philanthropy project.
In 2011, the Event was revamped and presented with a new and bigger “bazaar” than ever before. Throughout the evening, over 250 people shopped and socialized. This year, we hope for it to be even bigger and better than before. Attendees are not just those in the Ignatius community, we encourage any interested shopper to visit with us.
The Vendor Application is included in this packet. It is designed so you can fill it out in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader, save it and then email it back to our Chairwoman, Brooke Randazzo Eggert ‘96. If you are unable to send it via email, please print and send via mail. Addresses are below. Each Vendor Application will be considered as they are submitted. The Women’s Society is proud to connect the Ignatius community with each other and introduce opportunities that might not have been possible before. Due to this networking tenet, we encourage those from the Ignatius community to apply for a vendor table at our event. Those from the Ignatius community will receive preferential placement in our Event.
Thank you so much for your interest and I look forward to working with you!

• Level One vendors are limited to a total of 40 businesses. Applications are accepted based on:
1. Involvement / Connection to the Ignatius Community: Alum, Current Parents and Past Parents are given first priority. If all 40 spots are not filled by alum, current parents or past parents, we will then open it up to others outside of the community.
2. Type of Product / Service: If we have many applicants who sell / provide the same type of product / service, we will limit the amount of Level One tables available to no more than 7 per category. Aside from this, we only allow one representative from a company to participate. For example, if there are three Mary Kay reps, only one will be able to have a table. The other two are welcome to participate with a directory listing, but it is understood that there will be other Mary Kay reps in the same directory. The only exception allowed is if the reps agree to share a table and any future business from the Event.
The decision on which representative is allowed to have the table will be determined based upon the application credentials, date it was submitted and at the discretion of the Women’s Society Board of Directors.
3. Date of application
Level Two and Three vendors are unlimited. Please note, there is the potential for other reps of your company to have a directory listing also. It is up to the Vendor to determine if their company policy allows for them to be listed in the same directory as another vendor. It is not the responsibility of the Women’s Society to research this information. The directory listings are sorted by category (jewelry, art, beauty, etc) and thus, multiple reps of companies can / will be on the same page as others.
Applications are due to the Women’s Society Board by October 12, 2012. Exceptions will not be made unless a category of product / service has not been filled to capacity. The Board will review the applications and inform the Vendors of their status by October 19, 2012. From that date, we will be sending information and instructions as it is available. The Vendor Application is on the next pages and any additional guidelines /information are following it.
Please read all information.
