It’s that time again for clothing lovers who love a good bargain.

This Friday from 2 to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon will be "Free Clothing Days" at the First Church of God.

The event is being coordinated by Shelley Rowan (pictured here), who has been doing it for the past 5 to 6 years.

She has received help from members of her congregation, as well as the PAHS Key Club members.

The event is held in the spring and fall and offers free clothing, shoes, purses and other accessories.

People donate unwanted clothing (some brand new with tags), and everything is free.

Donated items include clothing for men, women, teens, children and infants.

The majority of clothing will be separated by sizes.

Rowan said that there will also be scrubs, pajamas, dresses and men’s and women's business suits.

The most exquisite item that arrived is a breathtaking $900 wedding gown (pictured here) that was never worn and still has the price tag on it.

There are no income guidelines, and anyone is welcome to attend.

The only requirement is that you must bring your own bags or laundry basket to take clothes home. Bags will not be provided.

Doors will not open until 2 p.m. The drive is still in need of baby and kids’ items.

Anyone wishing to donate any gently worn clothing may do so by bringing it to the First Church of God gym.

Donations will be accepted until May 2.

When it comes to children riding in cars, safety always comes first.
