Plano, TX – Fans of the highly collectible figurines will be glad to hear Christmas is coming to town early this year. Mark Roberts, creator of the collectible fairy, elf, and Santa Claus figurines best known for their intricate design and detail, will be present at Holidaze & Gifts for a 1 day only signing event.
This Friday’s visit will mark Roberts’ fifth visit to the family owned and operated store in Plano, TX. “Excitement,” said Kathy Rupp, co-owner of Holidaze & Gifts when asked to describe previous signings by Roberts. “People came early waiting for him.”
“There is always an increase in pre-orders when customers find out Mark will be visiting,” she said. “The crowd is very happy, they buy more, and it’s generally a good experience for all.”
“He’s very personal with customers. They love having their picture taken with Mark,” said Belle Marie Demarest, the other co-owner. “Some people drive as far as 200 miles just to get a picture with him. They help increase sales and promotion of his products wherever he goes.”
Holidaze & Gifts carries Robert’s full line, including his fairies, elves, Santa Clauses, as well as his line of Christmas décor. Rupp is hopeful that the signing will bring in new customers like it did last year. They use e-mail, mail, and social media marketing to advertise the signing event, and customers were already enquiring about it well over a month ago.
Mark Roberts will meet fans and sign his collectibles from 1 to 3p.m. Friday, June 26th at Holidaze & Gifts at 3400 Preston Rd, Ste 200 in Plano. For more information about Roberts’ visit, call (972)596-7695.
