The Gainesville Civic Center soon will be filled with affordable clothing and home goods on sale to benefit the Junior League of Gainesville-Hall County.

The annual thrift sale benefits league programs such as the Feeding the Future Program, which feeds more than 100 families every month, according to Emily Drummonds with the Junior League.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the sale.

“It is the Junior League of Gainesville-Hall County’s largest yard sale,” Drummonds said. “It provides members of the community with the opportunity to buy needed items at affordable prices and features merchandise including furniture, electronics, toys, clothes, housewares and more.”

The event begins with a double-priced preview sale from 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1. Admission to the preview sale is $5.

The thrift sale is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3 and admission is $1. Strollers will not be allowed in the civic center during either sale.
