Junior League hosts Attic Sale fundraiser

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Are you in the shopping mood and need an excuse to fill your closet? The Junior League of Gwinnett and North Fulton Counties has come to your rescue.

The nonprofit is hosting an Attic Sale at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds Saturday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The shopping event features previously owned and gently used baby and children's items, toys, jewelry, clothing, household items, electronics, furniture, decor for the house and more.

For foodies, the JLGNF Cookbook, "At Your Service," is available for purchase and shoppers have a chance to taste several recipes from the volume. The book is a collection of JLGNF members' favorite recipes and includes menu ideas and wine selections for events.

If you can't wait until Saturday, there is a preview party Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. for early shoppers at $10 a head. Snacks are provided by Publix and Chick-fil-A, so attendees can munch and browse at the same time.

Proceeds from the Attic Sale support the JLGNF's programs serving the needs of women and children in the Gwinnett, North Fulton and Forsyth County communities.
