Probiotic sale at Grove Collaborative (a company I love)

Grove Collaborative (a company I love; used to be ePantry) is having a huge sale on Lovebug Probiotics. You can get 30% off on everything, plus if you’re new to Grove, you can go here to get a free $10 to spend! (aff link)

Grove is also my favorite place to purchase Mrs. Meyers cleaning products, especially their had soaps. Some of the best scents are seasonal; try the Peony in the spring or the Apple Cider in the fall. My favorite all-around scent is their Lavender!

Save the Date: Fairview UMC Children’s Consignment Sale is June 24

The 2017 Fairview UMC Children’s Consignment Sale will take place June 24, and they’re now accepting consignors. Registration is online this year, and you can sign up here. More information is available on the church website here or on the Facebook group here. Remember, there will be a special pre-sale open only to consignors on Friday, June 23 at 7 p.m. Two tickets will be issued per consignor.

This sale is one of my favorites, because you can consign items from any season, and because they mail your consignment check straight to your house! I always consign in this sale, and can definitely recommend it! I will have a giveaway for pre-sale passes in a few weeks, so stay posted!

Giveaway: win tickets to the Junior League’s 2017 Bag-A-Bargain rummage sale!

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!)

Thanks to the League for allowing me to offer a giveaway for you! Go to the Thrifty Christy Facebook page and look for this post to enter to win one of six tickets to shop at Bag-A-Bargain on March 4! You’ll want to RSVP to the official Facebook event here as part one of your giveaway entries. The giveaway ends at midnight on Thursday and I’ll announce the winners Friday morning on Facebook. You’ll have 24 hours to claim your tickets. Happy shopping!

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.
