What Is It?
The Annual Thrift Sale, is one of the largest of its kind in the South East. Each year people come from all over the Low Country to shop for treasures and bargains. The Sale, held each fall, is a primary source of funding for the Junior League. All of the proceeds from the sale are returned to the community through Junior League community improvement projects as well as developing the leadership of the Junior League members. The sale also provides the community with a low-cost option to purchase needed household goods.
All of the net proceeds go directly into the community through a combination of League-sponsored volunteer projects, community grants, and development of leadership skills of our members.
What can you find?
