Giveaway: win tickets to the Junior League’s 2016 Bag-A-Bargain rummage sale!

February 22, 2016

UPDATE: Ticket winners are Stephanie K., Adrian J., Crystal, and Christine. Winners have been contacted. Have fun shopping!
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 will be the 30th year of Bag-A-Bargain!
This year’s Bag-A-Bargain sale will take place on Saturday, March 5 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Jacob Building in Chilhowee Park (near the Knoxville Zoo).
If you’d like to see what I’ve written about the sale in past years, you can read all of those stories here, including highlights from setup shifts when I was serving as an active member. 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.
You can also purchase tickets to shop early at the Bag-A-Bargain preview party on Friday, March 4 at 6:30 p.m., plus you’ll get to enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, a band, and more! These tickets are $35 each, and can be purchased on the website here. (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!)
Thanks to the League for allowing me to offer a giveaway for you! Here’s how to enter to win one of four tickets to shop at Bag-A-Bargain on March 5:

Required Entry:

To enter to win, just leave a comment below letting me whether you’ve ever been to Bag-A-Bargain. If yes, what’s the best purchase you’ve made? (It’s a hard choice, but mine is the gorgeous oriental rug currently brightening up my living room!)

That’s it!

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 Wednesday, February 24 at midnight EST. I will choose 4 winners via and will post their names on Thursday, February 25. 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.
