Cowboy Christmas 2007 in Las Vegas

It is that time of year again. The leaves are turning and the pumpkins are dotting the streets. With the World Series underway folks are starting to look towards Cowboy Christmas along with the 2007 National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Here's a roundup of the gift shows going on around Rodeo Time.

  • The Las Vegas Convention Center hosts the Cowboy Christmas Gift Show which is open 10AM - 5PMdaily from December 6 through December 15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center this show bills itself as "longest running and ONLY “Original” gift show of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo"
  • My personal favorite the Ariat Country Christmas Western Gift Expo returns for the 14th year at the Sands Convention Center and runs from December 6 - December 16. Their site doesn't give hours but it's safe to assume they will be similar daytime hours.
  • The Mandalay Bay Convention Center will again play host to the Cowboy Marketplace Western Lifestyle Expo December 7 - 15
  • So whether you're coming to town for the NFR or just for some holiday shopping it should be a great time in Vegas again this year.

cowboy christmas 2007

BAD BAD BAD!!!!!!!!!
No way to get into this place from the strip.We were vendors there too and were suspicious when almost every single vender there said it was their 1st time at that show.Usually thats the kiss of death at a show if there are few or no returning vendors.There were some that seemed to be doing good but they were in the minority.
It was all the same stuff booth after booth (tack,swarovsky crystal tack and ladies llama purses). I have never paid soooo much and made sooooo little. We got so disgusted with no customers and tons of theft afterhours (despite locking up our booths) that we left before it was over,in fact just 2 days into it.I wish I had seen this blog before i wasted all that money.
NEVER NEVER AGain !

hats

I bought a hat from the convention center the first day.Maybe some of you have heard of her, she calls herself the
Queen. I have been trying to get a hold of her. Her receipt says western Tradition on it but the # is disconnected and she is not in the yellow pages in Gun barrel Texas.I have never been so unhappy with a sales person in my life, she totally misrepresented bailey hats and the Cowboy christmas. I would like to contact someone there please help.

Bed Sheets

We bought 3 sets of bed sheets at Cowboy Christmas at the Convention center and have yet to receive them in the mail. I have the receipt, but do not know the booth number. The website on the receipt is bogus. If any one has any information on how to contact this place, please let me know.

Bed Sheets

Hello,
I bought 1 set of the sheets, which I was amazed that they were only $20.00 for 400ct. sheets.
I immediately washed them and put them on my bed. They are so thin, and now I just noticed that they pulled apart in the middle of the flat sheet. ( just torn like paper ).
Please let me know if you find the vendor.
Good luck.

Bed Sheets

we also bought 2 sets of bed sheets that we were going to pick up the next day but was called home for an emergancy so I went back to let her know we had to leave and she said she would send them she took my address and phone number to send them, we have yet to see our sheets and yet the money was taken out of our acct. and yes the web sight is bogas.
The convention center should have these people's names and information to find them so we can get our sheets or money back, Why are there so many complaints and nothing is done about making this right with the customers. THIS IS FRAUD!!!!
We ar going to do what we can to reclaim our money, and we will never shop their again.

Well it sure sounds

Well it sure sounds interesting, I wish I were there to see the spectacle myself cos I am sure it was great. I wonder if they had regular artificial trees or cowboy style ones...

bed sheets

I too bought bed sheet at the expo, I bought two sets and washed them to put on the beds and just like the other post said, they tore immediatly. This ruins the experience and definitly should make people leary of making purchases. I too would like to ring that vendors neck.

Bed Sheets

I bought some sheets also that were not up to the standards that 400ct. sheets should be! What is the website that you said was bogus? Mine is a vendor at the South Fla Fair in West Palm Beach , Fl. The paper says they are based in Daytona Beach Fl. The website is Antrim-International.com

I am very displeased with my sheets, and would like to file a complaint with the BBB. That company is not listed with the BBB when I search them on BBB's site.

I wish I could give more information, hope you can provide me with your info as well.

Thanks,
Valerie.

Jewelry

I am trying to find the Vendor that had the jean and rhinestone jewelry called "Simply Barbara".

Cowgirl Co.

I bought my daughter a hawaiian print (pink) long sleeve shirt with Cowgirl Co. embroirdered on it 2 years ago and she wants another one for rodeo season. Does anyone know where to find the maker of this shirt? I got it from one of the vendors at one of the convention centers. Thanks

BAD SHEETS

read your comment. Don't know who the vendor is but the show's address is: Anne Aznarez, show manager
Cowboy Christmas
770 E. Warm Springs Ste. 140
Las Vegas, NV 89119

Good luck. May pass on the address to others who wish to complain. I have been an exhibitor, and the bad ones hurt us all. I am sure the show would like to know to keep from having bad product back.

400 thread sheet count egyptian cotton.

I am also disgusted with the quality of the sheets purchased at the Palm Beach Fair in Florida. They are not as deep as we were assured. I tressed the need for the depth at the fair when we spoke to your venders. They are thin and cheap, I am very gratefull that we only purchased one set. The venders were not truthfull in representing them, and we would like our MONEY BACK!

What a classic

The Cowboy Christmas Gift Show is simply a classic , I love it.

They don't give a sheeeeeeeeeeet

I too got stung by these scammers. Like Leonard ours simply never arrived in the mail either. You just don't expect this sort of thing do you? I wonder how these people sleep at night?

Actually, probably quite well in all our undelivered sheets!

Cowboy Market At the Mandalay Bay

I meet the most wonderful people selling Western Tile Murals. I purchased 1 for my kitchen to put behind my stove. It was there first year at the show and I would recommend there products to everyone. They also sold western cutting boards and easel back tile pictures. I will look for them again this year! I was told that they will be attending the show at the Convention center this year too. Not all experiences where bad.

Event

When is the show this year? I agree that the event was not bad for everyone.

LV Conention center

I would really like to see next year but now Im getting scared of all the bad publicity. I make handmade cowgirl jewelry. Just getting started and would like to do well. Big $'s to sell so what do you think?

Look ... I found this

New count! same ones.....

Okay, I just brought two sheet from this guys and they the number an address here at the Mid South Fair is PO Box 11542 Daytona Beach, FL 517-648-8712, but the sheets are 600 ct. I will test them on tonight and if they ripe I have a few days to take them back to the vendor!

metal wall hangings

We bought two metal wall sculptures, horses and riders in a horseshoe shape, and we want to buy some this year. If anyone knows this father/son duo, please let me know their contact.

Bad Sheets

At least you got what you purchased. I paid cash for mine got a receipt but never got the product. Contacted the company many times no response. Dont purchase thier products. Its a shame one bad sheet can spoil the whole night

Ed Hardy knockoff purses

there was a vendor at the convention center selling Ed Hardy knock off purses, if anyone knows the name could you please contact me.

Simply Barbara

Did you ever find any information on Simply Barbara. I just love her stuff and would like to purchase more.

NFR-Vegas

I have been a vendor at Country christmas during NFR for nearly 20 years. If you get the opportunity to show your goods there, take it. Most any vendor you speak to would quickly tell you it is the best show of the year. Rather than renting space at Cowboy Christmas @ the convention center, I'd recommend you check into available space at one of the other two shows held at the sands Expo or mandalay Bay. Google Group W Productions which is who puts on each of these shows. good luck!

Do you have any address's or

Do you have any address's or phone number to contact about getting set up for a vending site. Thank you

need your input!

I am starting out as an independent artist. I do western style bronze sculpture and watercolor. I am thinking about trying a booth out in Cowboy Christmas this year, but am hesitant due to some of the posts I've read. Does any one have any advice? Does bronze art sell? Or just art in general. My prices are fairly high due to the foundry fee's (1-4,000 for the bronzes, watercolors are 1-300). I was also concerned about a post stating that there were problems with theft. I have a good product and just want to find a good place to get some exposure. Will be happy to hear anybody's input! Thanks.

Cowboy Christmas Acceptance?

We applied for a Cowboy Christmas booth for the first time this year and still haven't received a response. Is this typical? We're dying to find out if we were accepted. What can we do to follow up?

Vegas Cowboy Central @ South Point Hotel/Casino

We are returning vendors for the 2nd year at the venue that the South Point calls their "Vegas Cowboy Central". It was great, not too big, not too small...great fellow vendors with only a few "swap-meet" types selling vibrating pillows, etc. But for the most part, all of the vendors they had there had nice stuff. Make sure you come to the South Point Hotel & Casino, you won't be disappointed! Plus, they have various horse activites during the day like the World Series of Team Roping and the PRCA Convention. Come by Churchill's Western Tack & Apparel & say hi!

being a vendor

I am wondering how to set up a table at the south point and be a vendor for cowboy christmas, who to contact and what all is involved to be set up with costs and so on.

Thanks
