SUMMIT, NJ - The Junior League of Summit (JLS) has announced its Spring Fling event will be held March 6, from 9:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. at the JLS Thrift Shop.  The event features new and gently used men’s, women’s, and children’s spring clothing as well as housewares.

With spring around the corner, this is a good time to visit the Thrift Shop and find some great spring fashions.  Whether looking for t-shirts, shorts, or a bright dress to break out of the winter cold, the Shop has many options.  This year’s inventory is packed with high-quality Spring clothing for men, women, and children, typically 50% less than full retail prices. 

“We hope people will stop by and check out our wonderful spring selections,” said JLS President, Colleen Markley,  “With the warmer months approaching, shoppers can come find some great deals for their families.  And, at the Junior League of Summit Thrift Shop, you are supporting the local community, as all of the Shop’s proceeds go directly back to the JLS and are reinvested in the form of grants, funding for community projects, and scholarships.”
