Ready to get started on your holiday shopping and support a cause that helps local kids? The Junior League of Raleigh's largest fundraiser, A Shopping SPREE!, will be open for general shopping at the Raleigh Convention Center, in downtown Raleigh, Oct. 25-28.

This four-day shopping event showcases regional and national exhibitors offering the latest in fashion and home decor trends, unique gifts and holiday merchandise. Now in its 28th year, the event is expected to attract more than 13,000 shoppers this year.
