Corsicana Vendor’s Day slated for third Saturday of month

Corsicana — Over 70 vendors will be on hand Saturday for the debut of the new Corsicana Vendor’s Day in the Ideal Storage facility at 801 North 13th Street.

The marketplace of indoor and outdoor vendors offers ample vendor space and parking, and a huge variety of merchandise said Tammie McWhorter, coordinator for the event.

The Corsicana Vendor’s Day will be monthly event, set for the third Saturday of each month, McWhorter said.

“We’ve got roughly 73 vendors in 80 booths,” McWhorter said of the opening day. As of Tuesday only a few outdoor spaces remained available for the debut event.

Home-based businesses and vendors are a big part of the show lineup.

Purses, candles, cosmetics, furniture, T-shirts, organic lotions, crosses, home decor and more make up some of the vendor booths, she said.

“I can’t think of anything the show won’t have,” McWhorter said. A list of vendors for the show is on the event Facebook page, and will appear in advertising in local media, she said.

A food vendor will also be on hand for those wanting to enjoy lunch, McWhorter added.

McWhorter said she plans on holding different promotions each month, including offering door prizes, and helping groups including the county’s foster children, and organizations within the community like the Food Pantry.

Admission and parking are free for the event, slated for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The Corsicana and Navarro County Chamber of Commerce is hosting a ribbon cutting at the event at 8:30 a.m. to start the day.
