Calling All Vendors!

Sip 'N Shop Correct

The 6th Annual Valley Ranch Sip ‘N Shop planning has begun and we are ready to see you! We welcome everyone who has a unique item to sell, but hurry! Certain vendor categories are limited.

Please express your commitment to participate by selecting the REGISTER button below and submitting the registration form. We are equally excited to offer you a ‘GiveBack’ opportunity with your registration. See below for more information.

Registration Open

Sip ‘N Shop, though based in the Valley Ranch-Irving community, attracts shoppers from our neighboring cities of Coppell, Carrollton, Dallas, and beyond. This unique shopping experience is a Signature Valley Ranch Event with an average attendance of 300 guests.

We encourage quality, one-of-a kind, handmade, clever gifts, gadgets, toys, apparel, home décor and everything in between. To maintain a distinctive shopping experience, clothing, jewelry, and bakery vendors are limited.


Give Back

All vendors are invited to participate in our giveback initiative. Simply put, if you choose to donate, your preferred charity will be entered into a drawing to receive all of the collected funds. The winning charity will be announced the day of the event.

There are no fees to sell in Sip ‘N Shop. While your participation in the GiveBack donation is optional, we do hope you will consider partnering with us for a worthy cause.

Please reach LaWanda or Brock with any questions at lifestyle@valleyranch.org or 972-869-1430
