Tupelo Furniture Market
The Tupelo Furniture Market, one of the largest furniture trade shows in the United States, will again include The Furniture, Gift and Home Accessories Show, open to the public in the market's building number one, August 14-17.
“One of our missions at the Tupelo Furniture Market is to do good for the community,” said Kevin J. Seddon, president of the market.
Organizers have reached out to partner with groups and organizations in the community to offer them opportunities for fundraising at the event.
Tupelo High School’s booster club, The Salvation Army, and Hospice House will be raising funds during the four days of the event. In addition, North Mississippi Health Services will host a Health Fair on Thursday, the opening day of the show, and the blood mobile will also be on hand. Entertainer Kay Bain will participate.
Mississippi Health Services would hold a health fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on August 14, offering free health screenings.
Companies will fill the 185,000 sq. ft. of space offering indoor and outdoor furnishings, bedding, pottery, home appliances, jewelry, designer purses, artwork, lighting fixtures and more.
“The Furniture, Gift & Home Accessories Show has provided the perfect venue for furniture industry retailers that are searching for smaller companies offering unique furniture, home accessories, and other items that might round out their inventory,” said Seddon. “Many of these small companies, which often sell hand-crafted furniture and accessories in smaller lots, want to sell to both the trade and the public so we allow them to do so in building one of our six buildings. It’s worked perfectly for all our attendees and for our exhibiting companies. And this year, we believe we’ve been fortunate to offer an event that best serves the trade, consumers and our community!”
The Furniture, Gift & Home Accessories Show runs from Thursday, August 14 through Sunday, August 17. Times are: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, 8 to 6 Saturday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
