The Southern Christmas show is great in terms of sales but also provides a great way to
advertise our store. Many of our customers first learned about us when they saw us at
the show.
Beth Taflinger, Casual Elegance
For 20 plus years the Southern Christmas Show has always been our best and the one
we count on to get us through the winter.
John Mason, Mountain Song
The show is well established, well organized and well managed. The owners and staff
are personable and touchable. Unloading and loading runs smoothly and quickly for
such a large show.
Judy Black, Created to Enjoy
Best show ever! Shea’s Inc. has found the Southern Christmas Show to be a staple in
boosting our yearly sales growth. With the abundance of customers and the traffic
created, I cannot imagine any business not wanting to share in the holiday splendor.
Just be prepared – these holiday shoppers take their shopping seriously.
Jim Shea, Shea’s Wildflowers
The quality of the show depends on the quality of show exhibitors.
