The Junior League of Birmingham proudly presents Bargain Carousel, a 1000-family garage sale, to the Birmingham community. Labeled the “largest garage sale in Birmingham”, JLB volunteers provide over 7,000 hours of service and over 100,000 items through member donations. Bargain Carousel provides the local community with the opportunity to purchase gently used merchandise, including many of life’s necessities, at very affordable prices, such as clothing, furniture, large appliances, children’s toys, infant items, kitchen items, linens, art, books, outdoor, home improvement equipment, and much, much more. You can shop with the added benefit of knowing that the money raised is returned directly to the Birmingham community to fund the 38 Community Projects the JLB supports. This is not your typical garage sale!
JLB programs serve those in need in the Birmingham metro area, including initiatives related to domestic violence, human trafficking, homelessness, juvenile crime, healthy living, job readiness, personal finances and education.
Every $40 purchase of merchandise at Bargain Carousel, provides necessities for 4 survivors of sexual violence through our partnership with The Crisis Center, 10 meals for homeless women and children through our partnership with Pathways, or diapers for one child in need for a month through the JLB Diaper Bank.
Because the JLB provides both direct funding and trained volunteers to the community, your supports helps to double the JLB’s impact.
