A Shopping SPREE!

Join us on November 1-5 for the 2017 A Shopping SPREE! 

A Shopping SPREE! – a Raleigh tradition for over 30 years – is considered the area’s premier and most original shopping event.  This annual four-day shopping fundraiser showcases regional and national exhibitors for shoppers seeking the latest in fashion and home decor trends, unique gifts and holiday merchandise. This is a juried event ensuring a well-balanced selection of products and quality merchandise.

Proceeds from A Shopping SPREE! help support the Junior League of Raleigh’s Center for Community Leadership and community projects, particularly in the League’s focus area of promising youth.  The League has donated more than $1.6 million and more than 237,000 volunteer hours to programs and projects that impact youth in our community such as BackPack Buddies, SAFEchild, Brentwood Boys & Girls Club, StepUp Ministry, Helping Horse, Heritage Park Community Learning Center, Kids on the Block and AventWest Children’s Mentoring.

A SPREE! Fund has been established to help offset the costs of the show and allow more funding for our community programs and projects.  Donate now to support the SPREE! Fund.
