57th Annual Junior League Attic Sale | Events
COLUMBUS, GA - It’s that time of year again, time for the Junior League of Columbus’ annual Attic Sale. This bargain hunter’s paradise has become a tradition in Columbus that you don’t want to miss. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at the Columbus Civic Center. Doors open at 8 a.m., but get there early because the line usually starts forming as early as 4 a.m.! Admission to the sale is just $2. The doors will close at 11:45 a.m. for price reductions, but we will re-open at 12:30 p.m. The Sale ends at 2:00 p.m.
“We are so excited about this year’s Attic Sale! We have thousands of items that have been donated by League members and members of the community, and the prices are unbelievable!! For example, ladies dresses are available for $5, children are clothing from $2, and books start at $.75!! You definitely don’t want to miss the amazing bargains we will have at The Civic Center!” says Ann Howard, 2011 Attic Sale Chairman.
If you want to beat the Saturday morning crowd you can come to the door buster’s sale on Friday, September 30 from 6 to 8 pm. Admission is $10.00 and all item prices are doubled. Don’t worry, doubled prices don’t mean you won’t get a great deal!
The Attic Sale is the Columbus League’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds from the sale go back into the community to support programs, activities, and operations of the League. The Junior League of Columbus provides support to 15 local agencies and each year members do volunteer over 7,500 hours of their time.
This year the Attic Sale is sponsored by St. Francis Hospital, Burger King, Aflac, and Livingston Storage.
The Junior League of Columbus has a current membership of approximately 675 women who are dedicated to promoting volunteerism and improving the community through action and leadership.
