Trader J’s Auction: A place full of Christmas Spirit

Trader J’s Auction is more than just an auction house, it’s a family of caring and generous people who support local charities throughout the year and especially at Christmas time.  This year the auction will be open again to homeless and needy families from Lawrenceville and Jenkins Elementary schools and the Villa Lodge in Lawrenceville for Christmas shopping. 

Last year 180 needy children were provided Christmas from Trader J’s Auction and this year the number is expected to increase drastically.  According to Jan Jones, owner of Trader J’s Auction, “Through donations of items and money from our customers, we are able to provide toys, stockings, Bibles, winter wear, food boxes and hot meals to children and families in need at Christmas absolutely FREE!  God has blessed this auction and its patrons and this is our way of giving back to others and glorifying His name.”  Jones goes on to say, “This is a huge task.  Thankfully this year word has spread beyond the walls of the auction and others are getting involved!  The Lawrenceville First United Methodist Church is partnering with us and providing clothing, coats and shoes for all the homeless children from Lawrenceville Elementary, stuffing stockings and providing other donations of toys.  Because this is our 4th year of serving the needy in Lawrenceville, word has also spread to other families in need.  My phone is ringing and we have never turned anyone away!”  If you are interested in donating items, money or time to the cause, call Jan at 770-355-1833.

Of course Trader J’s Auction will be in full auction mode during December with tons of merchandise for the holidays at rock bottom prices!  The auction is open every Friday in December at 6pm (except the 26th) and Saturday, December 6 at 5pm with HUGE Christmas auctions planned every night.  There will be everything you need for the holidays including decorations, toys, gift items for all ages, stocking stuffers, holiday food items and more.  Most everything is name brand and way below retail prices!
