It’s time for Bargain Carousel, Birmingham’s 1,000 family garage sale, benefiting the community projects offered by the Junior League of Birmingham! On April 26 and 27, you can shop the sale at the former JC Penney/Century Plaza Mall and find deals on everything from gently used clothing, appliances, furniture and home decor, electronics, art, sporting goods, heirlooms, antiques and baby items – all at terrific prices! Even better: your shopping will help women and children in the Birmingham area.
But that’s not all. Bargain Bash - the event’s preview cocktail party - kicks off tomorrow night and we’re giving away passes to one SCDD reader today! These VIP passes will allow you (and a friend!) to attend the Bargain Bash preview party with early entry at 6:00 PM on Thursday, April 24. Early entry means one extra hour of pre-sale shopping before general admission entry begins at 7:00 PM and “first dibs” on sale and over 150 live/silent auction items. The live auction will feature items including SEC Championship tickets and a New Orleans Saints Experience!
