Junior League of Wilmington accepting vendors for its annual Bargain Sale

WILMINGTON — For the past 69 years, the Junior League of Wilmington (JLW) has organized a public, large-scale, thrift market. 

It’s now accepting vendors to event number 70, slated for March. Interested parties that want to sell pre-owned home decor, houseware, clothing, books, sporting equipment, and furniture at a discounted price can contact Jessica Smith at jrs8492@gmail.com to learn more about the event.

Established in 1952, the Junior League of Wilmington is a nonprofit organization of women committed to improving the community through leadership training and volunteer efforts. Its largest fundraiser of the year, the league’s annual bargain sale will be hosted on the first Friday and Saturday of March at the Elks Lodge on Oleander Drive. 

On Friday, March 1, the sale will open with the Sip & Shop event. For a $15 admission ticket, attendees will be able to pre-shop the bargain sale and vendor items. Small appetizers, a selection of beer and wine, and admission to Saturday’s sale are also included with this ticket. The Sip & Shop event will be held in the evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

The following day, Saturday, March 2, the bargain sale will continue from 7:30 a.m to 1:30 p.m.

Tickets are $5, card or cash accepted. All proceeds funnel back into the community for various nonprofits and scholarship programs that Junior League supports.
