Giveaway: Tickets to the Junior League’s 2014 Bag-A-Bargain rummage sale preview party – 4 winners, $50 value!

February 18, 2014

UPDATE: The winners are comments #21 Becky T., #41 Hayley I., #30 Sarah M., and #59 Paige M. Thanks to all who entered!

I am proud to be a Sustaining Member of the Junior League of Knoxville. I joined the Junior League in 2002, and have thoroughly enjoyed my League experience. My favorite event every year is Bag-A-Bargain, the giant rummage sale for which the League is famous! This year’s Bag-A-Bargain sale will take place on Saturday March 8 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Jacob Building in Chilhowee Park (near the Knoxville Zoo).

This will be the second year I won’t be working a setup shift as an active member, so no Thrifty Christy’s Guide to Bag-A-Bargain, sorry! If you’d like to see what I’ve written about the sale in past years, you can read all of those stories here.

I’ve been a huge fan of Junior League sales ever since I furnished my first post-college apartment with items from the Junior League of Birmingham’s sale. Junior Leaguers know how to put together great rummage sales! Here are some of my photos of previous sales:

Tickets to this amazing thrift sale are just $5, and you can get $1 off each ticket at the door by bringing a canned food item to donate, too. There’s also a coupon in the Knoxville Schools Coupon Book (but you can’t combine discounts). Tickets go on sale at 7 a.m. the day of the sale, doors open at 8 a.m., and be aware that people WILL line up to get in. There were even lines one year when it snowed.

Thanks to the League for allowing me to offer a giveaway for you! Four lucky winners will each win a set of two tickets to shop early at the Bag-A-Bargain preview party on Friday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m., plus you’ll get to enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, a band, and more! These tickets are usually $25 each! (Please note that although you do get to shop early, prices that night are double the price listed on the tag. I’ve still found some amazing deals at the preview party, especially in the Treasure Chest section!)

Here’s how to enter:

Required Entry:

To enter to win, just leave a comment below letting me know if you’ve ever been to Bag-A-Bargain. That’s it! (If you’re reading this on Facebook/Twitter hop on over to thriftychristy.com to leave your comment.)

Additional Optional Entries:

You can do each of the following things for an additional entry in the giveaway. You can only do each of these once, for a possible total of 5 entries.

Please leave a separate comment for each method of entry. If you only leave one comment then you only have one entry, as each comment is numbered and I randomly choose a number. Make sense?

This giveaway ends Tuesday, February 25 at midnight EST. I will choose 4 winners via random.org and will post their names on Wednesday, February 26. Giveaway open to US readers only.

Disclosure: I received passes to this event plus additional passes from the Junior League of Knoxville to share with my readers. Tickets will be mailed out to winners at the addresses provided. I cannot be held responsible for any problems with postal delivery. All opinions stated in this post are my own.
