Contact: Katie Misukanis, President


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE [September 21, 2011]   The Junior League of Saint Paul will hold its annual Next To New Sale on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at the Dairy Building on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.  The sale begins at 8:00 am and ends at 4:00 pm.  Shoppers looking for bargains will find hundreds of new and gently used items at this one-day event.  Prices will be reduced by ½ starting at 12:30 pm, and the bag sale will begin at 2:30 pm, when shoppers can fill a bag with merchandise for one low price.

The sale provides an opportunity for the community to purchase high-quality merchandise at affordable garage sale prices.  The selection includes men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing as well as toys, sporting goods, books, furniture, household goods, antiques and collectibles.

Proceeds from this years Next To New Sale will support JLSPs’ costs as well as its community initiative “Healthy Bodies, Healthy Brains.”  Lack of nutrition and other factors associated with poverty are shown to retard brain development and function. The longer a child's nutritional, and in turn, educational needs go unmet, the greater the likelihood of future struggles to learn. JLSP helps to make a difference by providing meals over the weekends through our Backpack Buddies initiative, as well as hosting family nutrition nights during which kids learn to cook and families can learn inexpensive yet healthy recipes.  The Next to New Sale plays an important role in ensuring the continuation of these programs and developing further new and exciting efforts.

The Junior League of Saint Paul is as an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.  Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.  The Junior League of Saint Paul is open to all women who want to make a difference.  For more information, please visit  Please also join us on Facebook and Twitter at and
