Auctions: a Thanksgiving Day tradition

For years and years Thanksgiving Day auctions have been a tradition.  This year Trader J’s Auction will be having a HUGE auction on Thanksgiving Day beginning at 5pm.  Trader J’s Auction is located at 131 Eaton St. in Lawrenceville.  The auction is owned and operated by Jan Jones, a life time resident of Lawrenceville.  The auction opened in May of 2009 and is community based.  “Since we opened the doors the auction has donated over 100,000 items to local charities including the Lawrenceville Food Coop, Bags of Hope program at Lawrenceville Elementary, homeless families and others. 

The customers at this auction are the most generous and giving people I’ve ever had the privilege to associate with.”, says Jones.  Trader J’s holds auctions every Friday night at 7pm which feature new merchandise, some good used items and deep discounts on food and grocery items.  The first Saturday of every month from February through November at 5pm Trader J’s is the site for estate, business and household liquidation auctions.  These auctions feature furniture, glass, art work, collectibles, antiques and much more! 

On Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday, Trader J’s will kick off the holiday season with 2 HUGE Christmas auctions!  Everything you need for the holidays will be available to bid on and purchase.  Stocking stuffers, gifts for all ages, decorations, holiday food items, toys and more will be up for auction and everything is brand new and mostly brand name!  Think about it, you can sit in a comfortable, climate controlled, family oriented and FUN environment and buy everything you need for the holidays!  No lines, no rushing around from store to store!  Join the auction tradition and enjoy your Thanksgiving meal with your family, then come to the auction and get your Christmas shopping started while having a bunch of fun with a great group of people!
