About Us

Copy of UptownCharlotteDanONeillThe Charlotte Gift & Jewelry Show was organized in June of 1953 by Mr. Earl H. Mahone, Jr. and soon became one of the strongest regional shows in the country. After outgrowing Radio Center in Charlotte (1963), the show was moved to its current home, the Charlotte Merchandise Mart.

All shows run three days (Saturday, Sunday 9am- 5pm and Monday 9am- 3pm). Each show has an order writing and cash and carry section, with the exception of the Jewelry Show which is entirely cash and carry.
