ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Bargain hunters got a jump on other shoppers Friday night as the Junior League of Albany kicked off its attic sale with a preview party.

It cost $10 to get in. The event included music and entertainment.

The group hopes to raise $20,000 for the Children Miracle's Network and the Lilly Pad. Attic Sale Chairperson Stephanie Fountain said, "They get funding from different places, but it is mainly fundraising where they are able to help the community. So we give back to those organizations. We are a non-profit that gives back to other non-profits."

There are still plenty of good items for sale. It will cost $2 to get in Saturday from 8 a.m. till noon at Hinman Pool and Patio on Fussell Road.
