I just went to the new location of the Junior League’s Bargain Sale and nearly passed out from all the great things up for sale this year.
First of all, the money earned goes to some really great causes. The League has partnered with the Blue Ribbon Commission to help at-risk youth. This year, a huge effort is going to kids at Sunset Park Elementary. Most of the kids who attend there are on free or reduced lunches, and many can’t rely on eating a warm meal on the weekends. There’s so much more to say here…
So, why not help them and have some fun, too? This year’s Bargain Sale is loaded with new or gently used clothing, handbags, shoes, appliances, electronics, and more. I spotted new Paige jeans, Kate Spade shoes, a North Face jacket, a new-in-the-box portable wine cellar, tons of Crane stationery, and even new Ralph Lauren bathing suits.
If you love shopping at local boutiques, like Blue Hand Home, Monkee’s and The Fisherman’s Wife, then you’ll probably freak out. The prices are ridiculous (like $20 for Paige jeans!)
Here are the deets:
Friday is the pre-sale. That means you can buy the best stuff first, eat good food and listen to local music. It will cost you $6 to get in.
The actual Bargain Sale is Saturday, starting bright and early at 7:30. It will cost you $3... and if you go at a certain time, you’ll spot me volunteering and shopping. But, fair warning: don’t get in my way when I’m in the zone!
