A Shopping SPREE returns to Raleigh this weekend with plenty of vendors, merchandise and special events.

The Preview Gala, from 7-10 p.m. on Wednesday, kicks off the four-day shopping extravaganza with hors d'oeuvres, live music, a silent auction and the chance to win prizes from Bailey's Fine Jewelry.

If you want to get to the deals before everyone else, there will be a private shopping event on Thursday from 8:30-11 a.m. The Early Morning Shopping event is only open to ticket holders. Tickets are $25 and include four-day admission to the event.

Early birds and coffee-lovers should head to Weekend Wake-Up on Saturday from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Shoppers will receive coffee and a free tumbler to get energized and ready to shop. This shopping opportunity costs $15 but includes Saturday admission.

General admission for A Shopping SPREE is $10 for a four-day pass. Weekend hours are:

  • Thursday, Oct. 25: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Friday, Oct. 26: 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct. 27: 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Sunday, Oct. 28: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The whole event is presented by and benefits the Junior League of Raleigh, an organization that promotes volunteer work and empowers women through leadership.
