Holiday Marketplace & 5th Annual Elite Mingler's Toy Drive


HOUSTON (December 12, 2011) – Aromas of winterberry fill the air and seasonal cocktails warm your senses as you gather in the joy of giving this holiday. On Friday, December 16, 2011, Simply Scents by Shan Candle Company presents the Holiday Marketplace and 5th Annual Elite Mingler Toy Drive Mix-n-Mingle. This event will be different from past events. The night will feature a catered cocktails and connections affair filled with evocative aromas and networking as we have done so successfully in the past. However this year adds a new spin with the Holiday Marketplace. Guest will mix and mingle with friends old and new, listen to the sounds of the holiday season and shop to the desire of their hearts.

“It has been our passion to support charitable efforts that have a positive impact on the lives of those less fortunate,” comments Shan Fuller. “We are proud to be sponsoring this worthy event to help raise toys to give the underprivileged children of Houston a reason to smile this Christmas.” Founded in 2002, Simply Scents is on a mission to infuse the world with scents to tantalize the senses. At the Holiday Marketplace the company will introduce favorite holiday scents like Sock It To Me, Winterberry, Spiced Cranberry and Peppermint Stick. Simply Scents will also be featuring their new line of candles, scents, containers and other products.

Joining Simply Scents by Shan Candle Company are Houston’s most exclusive retail outlets. Taste the sweet delights of Epiphanes Desserts and dazzle the palates of your holiday dinner party guests. Glam the little one with bling from A Bundle of Joy Baby Cakes while you grab a bit of bling for yourself from Ms. T Accessories. Treat your skin with products from Moore Body and nourish your hair at Kalei’s Hair Studio and Soul Hair Cottage. Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend but the gift of shoes from Shoezy Lover Boutique and Stiletto Steppin is her guilty pleasure. Guest will mix-n-mingle as they go pop-up shopping with the many vendors, including My Sista’s Closet and So Fancy Boutique, featured in the holiday marketplace. Whether you are looking for gifts for the office, gifts for that special someone in your life or a gift just for you, the Holiday Marketplace has just what you are looking for.

Elite Mingler is a group of professionals that meet for social, cultural, and networking events. These social gatherings attract the major movers and shakers of Houston looking for ways to make a positive impact in the communities where they work and live. Over the past five years they have worked with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to raise more than a thousand toys for children who otherwise would not have a gift on Christmas day.

On Friday, December 16th the doors of The Groovey Grill Mansion will open at 5PM and the admission is an unwrapped toy (or $10) to benefit the Marines Toys for Tots Foundation. The Groovey Grill Mansion is located at 2619 Calumet Street, Houston, TX 77004.

Houston’s own Shoezy Lover Boutique will also be celebrating their 2 year anniversary at this event. Nowhere else in the city of Houston can you get an anniversary celebration, a great time with friends, shopping and making a child smile all under one roof.
