UPDATE: The winners are Margie Elizabeth Turner-Schnell, Stephanie Bowling, Michelle Brown, Kendall Rae Prager, Chris Mitzi Hendrich, and Ash Lee. 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 will be the 31st year of Bag-A-Bargain!
This year’s Bag-A-Bargain sale will take place on Saturday, March 4 from 8 a.m. to 12 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 3 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!)

Thrifty Christy’s guide to the Junior League of Knoxville’s Bag-A-Bargain 2012

On Wednesday I worked my setup shift for the Junior League’s Bag-a-Bargain fundraising event. Being a rummage sale junkie, I always enjoy getting to sort through things and eyeball items I want to purchase. I took a few photos to show you around the sale, which is tomorrow from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Jacob Building in Chilhowee Park. I’ll be working my sale-day shift from 11 a.m. until the sale is over so if you’re there, come find me!

I’ve taken the guide I created last year and updated it to reflect the new locations of certain favorite sections of Bag-A-Bargain, specifically Treasure Chest! Please note that these photos were taken on the first day of setup, so  we were just getting organized and donations were just starting to come in. If the merchandise looks sparse, don’t worry: it’ll be packed on sale day!

Treasure Chest 2011, above

When we’re sorting through donated items, we (JLK members) set aside any items that are particularly expensive for the Treasure Chest section of the sale. I recommend you head for this section first, as you’re not allowed to bring other, non-Treasure Chest items inside, and it has a separate checkout. You will enter on the first floor of the Jacobs Building. This section is on the second floor in the front right corner. Hint: This is where I buy my Easter dress each year.

Here are a few items that were headed to Treasure Box when I was working:

You may notice that Treasure Chest is in a new location this year! Here’s a picture of the new location, if you’re a visual person:

There are a few sections that have moved, so it may help you to memorize the following two maps that I saw during my pre-sale shift. These were for league members on the first day of setup, so there’s always the chance something has changed…

Hope those maps are helpful!

The second area I visit when I’m shopping is the Children’s Clothing and Toys section.

This section takes up almost the entire right-hand side of the first floor. There are always really great kids clothes, toys, and other paraphernalia, like costumes. We love costumes in my family.

Next I head to the Books/Movies/Music section. One year I bought four bags of books. People were looking at me like I was crazy, but what can I say? I love books. This section is on the second floor directly above where you entered on the first floor.

Finally I just start to wander through the rest of the sale. I will probably head to the first floor for Adult Clothing, which is now against the back wall on the left-hand side of the building. Here’s what it looked like last year:

Also in Adult Clothing: rows and rows of shoes. My favorite so far are these Kate Spade heels. (If you’re saying, “Kate who?” just know that I did a quick search on the Saks website and found most Kate Spade shoes to be around $300. And did I mention that at our sale shoes are just $2?)

My next stop is Home Furnishings, which is right next to Adult Clothing, and takes up the largest portion of the left-hand side of the first floor. Here’s an aerial shot of the furniture:

And a few close-ups:

Every year the Bag-A-Bargain committee picks the donated item that is the most unusual and fun. Last year it was this deer antler lamp:

And the perennial favorite (and unofficial mascot of Bag-A-Bargain) is this purple velvet Virgin Mary coin bank:

Now you know there were many, many designer outfits and gorgeous pieces of furniture that I didn’t photograph, right? This sale is not all antler lamps and UT Polo shirts. I have found some treasures each year that I’ve attended Bag-A-Bargain. If you love rummage sales, you’re really going to enjoy this one.

So that’s it for my Bag-A-Bargain preview! If you have any questions about this event or the Junior League of Knoxville, please email me or leave a comment below. Don’t forget that you can get $1 off the $5 admission price if you bring a nonperishable food item for Mission of Hope.

Below are directions to the Jacob Building. I hope to see you tomorrow!

East on I-40 to James White Pkwy (Exit 388A; Take the Summit Hill Dr. exit; turn LEFT onto Summit Hill Dr. SE; then LEFT onto Hall of Fame Dr. SE; turn RIGHT onto E. Magnolia Ave NE stay on E. Magnolia appx 2.5 miles to entrance and parking area for Tennessee Valley Fair; The Jacob Bldg. will be on your LEFT, behind the Golden Glove Arena.
