SUMMIT, NJ – The Junior League of Summit Thrift Shop is hosting its Spring Fling Event Thursday, March 17th through Saturday, March 19th at 37 DeForest Avenue in Summit.
The annual event will feature spring dresses, brightly colored clothing, jackets, boots and other accessories for men, women and children as well as seasonal home décor.
“This year’s event will be extra special for the Shop since it is the first sale event being hosted at the fully renovated space. If you have not come to see the new Shop yet, this is great opportunity to enjoy the new shopping experience while getting amazing deals on Spring necessities. And, while featuring updated Spring inventory, there are also great finds still available on end-of-season winter clothing,” said League member and Shop Chair, Sarah Ross (Summit).
“We are so thankful to our Junior League of Summit volunteers and community members whose generous donations have made this possible. Our new space is fully stocked with beautiful, high quality clothing and housewares that will be featured at this event and help our customers to welcome in the Spring season. But, we are able to offer these fantastic deals because of the generosity of all of those who donate to our Shop. If you are starting your “Spring Cleaning,” please think of donating your gently used clothing, accessories, housewares and toys to the Shop. It provides immediate impact by enabling our fellow community members to purchase necessities at steep discounts. And since all of the Shop proceeds fund the League’s other philanthropic ventures, your donations also directly enable us to continue the League’s projects, provides grants to local community partners and scholarships to local high school students. We truly could not do this without the support of our local community, so we thank you,” commented League President, Christine Yearing.
