The Women’s Entrepreneur Society of Corpus Christi Presents 2018 Spring Gift Market

A unique blend of products offered by independent, women-owned businesses in the Coastal Bend awaits the public at the Women’s Entrepreneur Society of Corpus Christi’s Spring Gift Market from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 28.  

Admission is free to the market and will take place at BUS—Bar under the Sun, 702 N. Chaparral St., Corpus Christi, at the site of the former Greyhound Bus building.       

The WESCC of Corpus Christi is a non-profit organization established to develop and nurture relationships among women business owners in our community. 

“Our aim is to keep talent in the Coastal Bend by providing education, collaboration, support, and resources to women-owned small businesses at all levels of their career”, says President Nikki Riojas about the nonprofit organization she founded one year ago. 

There will be over 20 vendors with products to sell and about 500 people are expected to attend. 

A Donations for Discounts program will be offered for the first time at this market. All attendees who make a donation to The Purple Door on the day of the event will receive a card good for a corresponding discount at vendor booths: $5 for 5% off, $10 for 10% off and $15+ for 15% off of merchandise and services of participating vendors. Cards will be punched at The Purple Door booth and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to their organization. The Purple Door provides services, including safe shelter, counseling, youth-focused services, legal advocacy, and batterer’s intervention to survivors and their families.

There are two WESCC capstone market events each year and the next one will be in early December.
