TUPELO, Miss. (AP) – The spring Tupelo Furniture Market, originally scheduled for mid-February, will now be held Jan. 16-19.
TFM president Kevin Seddon tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/12fOKPC) that the move means the Tupelo date also will be bracketed by the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market (Jan. 8-15) and the Dallas Total Home and Gift Market (Jan. 15-21).
Exhibitors will have to decide on which markets to attend.
Seddon says he expects to lose some of those exhibitors.
However, many exhibitors and buyers have said they’ve been missing out on the lucrative tax season with the February dates.
Seddon says the market felt because of tax season, it had to get out in front of it to benefit as many exhibitors and buyers as possible.
