$1 Million Raised Through Sales

Take 400 women, throw in two days of intense shopping and what do you get? Well you get one of the most successful "Thrift Sales" in East Texas.

It's called the "Sensational Spring Sale" and it's put on each year by the Women's Auxiliary of the Salvation Army. From clothes, to shoes, and other nick-nacks you can pretty much find anything and everything in one of the three buildings.

The sale began 16 years ago. Back then the ladies did well to earn over a thousand dollars. This year they hope to raise more than $100,000.

For those looking for a bargain it has become a can't miss event. With Saturdays sale organizers expect to go over the $1-million mark in the sale's 16 year history. The money they raise goes towards a number of different programs here in East Texas.
