Bargain Basket

A bit of background… Bargain Basket has served the Des Moines community since 1974 in various forms and locations. The net proceeds from sales have given back over $1,000,000 to organizations working to improve lives of those in need in our community. The next phase of the Bargain Basket will have us closing the doors on the East Village location by the end of January 2017. We thank each and every one of our loyal customers, volunteers, donors and staff and hope you’ll continue to shop with us!

Moving forward… Our current plan is to be open once a month on the second Saturday of each month, with the first date set for February 11, 2017. The new shop location will be our Junior League office located at 3811 Ingersoll Avenue, Des Moines. Our focus will be on women’s boutique items—high quality clothing, accessories, and shoes.

For our customers… Please ensure we have your email to stay up to date with the latest news. Follow us on Facebook. The current schedule for the sales will be 10am-noon: $25 ticketed for preview sales (limited number) and noon-4pm open to the public. We will update the Facebook page with the month’s offerings for sneak peeks.

For our donors… We welcome your donations of high quality women’s apparel and accessories! You’re welcome to drop donations by our office location (office hours are Monday 9am−2pm, Tuesday 1pm−3pm, and Thursday 1pm−3pm) or to have those items picked up by a Junior League member, please contact us to arrange and allow 1-2 business days.

Thank you for all your support! We look forward to continue to serve you and our Des Moines organizations that benefit greatly from your generosity.
