Thrifting for a good cause
Junior League to host annual thrift sale Saturday
Kaylan Bradley of the Junior League of Gainesville-Hall County prices various pieces of furniture Tuesday inside the Brenau Downtown Center in preparation for the organization’s annual thrift sale.

The Junior League of Gainesville-Hall County will host its annual thrift sale Saturday. The event is 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Brenau Downtown Center, formerly known as the Georgia Mountains Center, at 301 Main St. SW, Gainesville. Admission is $1 per person, and proceeds go to the organization’s community initiatives, which “support and promote the well-being of children and families,” according to a news release. Those looking for an early turn at browsing through the gently used items, including clothing, furniture, electronics and housewares, may do so 5-8 p.m. Thursday, but prices will be double what they are on Saturday, and admission is $5. Only cash will be accepted at both events. For more information, call 770-535-1951 or email
