There’s a new date for The White Elephant Sale at Fondren Hall. The Fondren Renaissance Foundation will host The White Elephant Sale on Saturday, October 1.  The newly renovated venue by the Jamileh brothers is located in “The Top of Fondren” at the former Primos Northgate location at 4330 North State Street.  Fondren Renaissance’s Jim Wilkirson said the date worked out better for all involved. “All of the football games are away that weekend and it will be cooler weather hopefully”, he said, “and it puts us closer to the holiday shopping season”.

Booth spaces are 10×10 and available on a first come, first serve basis for $50.00 per booth.  A limited number of booths are available and may be purchased in multiples if needed.  So clean out those storage rooms and closets, make a pathway through the clutter and get ready for the holidays early.  Don’t want to have your own booth?  Donate your items and unsold treasures to the Fondren Renaissance Foundation and receive a full tax deduction form for all items donated. For more information or booth reservations, contact FRF at foninfo@fondren.org.

Hurry before all the spaces are gone (half of the spaces are spoken for).  Several interior designers within Fondren have rented space for their floor samples and overstock. A number of groups as well as individuals round out the list.  The best thing is setup day is on Friday and anything that is left after the sale can be taken away by Good Samaritan if you are not willing to pack items up and move them back to where they came.  Multiple spaces are possible.

Early bird shopping – 7:00am-8:00am, $5; general admission 8:00 am-2:00 pm, $2!
