“It has every department you can think of. We have children’s items, we have arts and crafts, holiday items, linens, electronics, home goods, everything,” said Mind Thomas with Junior League of Knoxville. “Everything is rummage sale prices, so it is basically 75 percent off anything that you would get retail.”
