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”.
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!
