Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events

By Katie M

Happy Wednesday, loyal Smarty friends. They say March roars in like a lion, but let's hope they are wrong. The weather is supposed to warm up this weekend and it's a great time to get out and about. Lots to do around the Triad including more consignment sales. TriadSmartyPants is your consignment sales headquarters but there may be sales we don't know about. Feel free to add any additional sales or weekend events in the comments below.

And before the weekend hits, there is a great opportunity to do some spring cleaning that could benefit many at-risk children at some of our local daycares. More information to come in tomorrow's blog, but you will be able to donate toys and other items in the lobby at Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches on Hanes Mall Blvd in WS beginning Tuesday, March 3 from 9:30 - 10 am. Log onto TriadSmartyPants tomorrow for all the scoop.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
