Junior League of Athens Bargainza
Bargainza is an annual thrift sale coordinated by the Junior League of Athens (JLA). Members of JLA as well as local businesses and citizens donate items to be sold at the event with proceeds going towards several JLA efforts that encourage improved literacy in the Athens-Clarke County community. Bargainza not only generates funds for crucial community programs, but it also provides an opportunity for the Athens community to engage with JLA members in a fun event that offers exceptional bargains on items ranging from dining room tables and dishwashers to picture frames and paperback books.
Our goal for our 2015 Bargainza is to increase the funds we have raised in previous years by incorporating an exciting new design competition: The Bargainza Upcycle Challenge. Pieces of furniture, whose glory days are behind them, will be refurbished and given a second chance for love. The refurbished pieces will be raffled off at Bargainza to very lucky and tasteful consumers.
We are excited to have designers from UGA's Furnishings and Interiors department Upcycle a desk and a pair of twin headboards. Pictures of the pre-upcycled pieces can be viewed above.
Paige, owner of Paint With Class (a local Upcycle boutique in Watkinsville, GA) is expertly upcycling a pair of antique chairs.
Monica, owner of Painted Wicker (a custom Upcycling company) is expertly upcycling a cabinet.
You can read more about Paige at Paint with Class and Moncia at Painted Wicker at our JLA Bargainza Website.
Throughout the Upcycle process, pictures of the furniture will be posted on Bargainza's Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/bargainzaathens).
Four raffle winners will be drawn: Raffle winners will select their preferred piece based on the order of the drawing.
Our raffle winners will be drawn on March 20th at 8:00PM. Raffle winners do not have to be present at the time of the drawing.
