Looking For A Bargain? Check Out The Attic Affair

The economy has most of us on a tight budget. If you consider yourself a bargain shopper, we've found an event you can't miss this weekend.

"We think we're going to get a lot more business mainly because the economy is such a downturn at this point.  This gives people an opportunity to come out and buy a new and gently used item that can support families and not spending a lot of money in doing so," said Attic Affair co-chair Natalie Henderson.

This is the 18th year the Junior League of Wichita Falls has hosted Attic Affair.  More than 200 families donate the thousands of new and gently used items.

"We make anywhere from $6,000 to $21,000 and that takes care of our expenses for our headquarters every year and allows us to put all other money back into the community with our projects," said co-chair Sarah Williams.

Henderson says this year donations are above average.

"I think they know there's a need in the community and they're being more generous this year.  Everyone's just chipping in so they can help everyone in community during this hard time," she said.

We got a preview of the sale and you wouldn't believe the amount of items available. Looking for a lamp, toy for your tot or new purse, they've got it.  How about a computer, couch or holiday decorations? The best part is the price.  You can find items marked as cheap as a quarter!

"Tonight from 6-9 is twice the price night.  It's $2 admission and twice the price night is the preview to the sale tomorrow.  Any ticketed item you pay twice to get to buy it tonight," Williams said.

So whether you're looking for something in particular, or just good time, if you're a bargain shopper, Attic Affair is the place to be this weekend.

"If you've never been out to the Attic Affair, I challenge you to come out.  There are some great treasures you're going to find. Something you've been looking for a long time you're going to find it on one of these tables," Williams said.

Attic Affair is Friday, March 26th From 6-9 p.m. and Saturday, March 27th 8a.m.- 2p.m.

It is taking place at the J.S. Bridwell Ag Center in Wichita Falls.  Admission is $2.
