Shopping spree for $2

IF MONEY is a bit tight but you live to shop then the Lifeline $2 clothing sale is for you.

Lifeline Ipswich is bursting at the seams with clothing, so to clear out space in the warehouse they've moved truckloads of pre-loved clothing to the Ipswich Showgrounds for a two-day bargain sale this weekend.

It couldn't come at a better time.

More Ipswich families than ever are struggling to make ends meet, even heading to local community groups to put food on the table.

Organiser and Lifeline Ipswich Business Division manager Colin Hannigan said even with big retailers importing cheap clothes by the ton, nothing in Ipswich was better value than the Lifeline sale.

"Absolutely everything is priced at $2," Mr Hannigan said.

"There are literally tonnes of pre-loved women's, men's, and children's clothing.

"There is babywear, teen apparel, right through to quality clothing for elderly shoppers."

The sale is being held in the Main Pavilion at the Ipswich Showgrounds on Warwick Rd from 9am-4pm tomorrow and on Sunday.

During last year's sale one lucky shopper took home a $2 wedding dress while many graduating school students took advantage of the jackets and formal dresses on offer.

"We expect to be almost completely cleared out, if not entirely," Mr Hannigan said.

"There is virtually nothing you can't buy here including swimwear and underwear.

"You can dress yourself from head to toe."

The success of the Lifeline Ipswich clothing sale in previous years has helped raise much-needed funds for Lifeline and Uniting Care Community to help support the counselling services they provide to the community.

To be a part of the fundraising experience and indulge in the cheapest shopping spree you will find across the region, head to the Ipswich Showgrounds, this weekend.
