The Junior League's annual Attic Sale is the club's main fundraiser for the year, with profits supporting their community programs and events.
This year's chair of the sale is Amanda McPherson, who said that this year's sale has "anything you can possibly imagine." Some of the items include a piano, washer and dryer, refrigerator, strollers, lots of women's clothing, baby and nursery items, holiday decorations, sporting goods, lamps, rugs, tables and more.
In addition to serving as a fundraiser, McPherson said the sale is also a great opportunity for people to get items for their homes at low prices.
Most of the clothing is $5 or less and large appliances could be marked as low as $25.
McPherson said that she thinks this year's Attic Sale will be more successful than in the past because of all the great items they have to offer, which are mostly donations from League members. There will also be a few new items that have been donated from local businesses.
All second-hand items are reviewed for quality and any appliances or electronics are tested to make sure they are in working order.
The Attic Sale officially kicks off at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center on Saturday from 8-11:45 a.m. and 12:30-2 p.m., but those who want a first crack at the deals can attend the doorbuster on Friday from 6-8 p.m. Prices are doubled and admission is $10 on Friday; admission is $2 on Saturday, $1 with a military ID.
Over the last few years, the Junior League's signature issue has been The Healthy Child. To promote this issue they sponsor activities such as the Kids in the Kitchen program, which teaches children how to make healthy choices about food and fitness.
