ATLANTA - Attention Thrifters: Weekend "Treasure" Hunt Happening In Sandy Springs: If you're a fan of thrift stores or love spending hours digging through antique shops, an event this weekend has your name all over it.
Tossed Out Treasures is the longest-running fundraiser for The Sandy Springs Society, an organization of women supporting community non-profits in Sandy Springs. The annual event is dubbed "Atlanta's ultimate upscale resale event" -- offering an enormous assortment of gently-used, upscale items for sale. This includes thousands of items, from clothes to accessories, jewelry to books, and sports equipment to household items. This year is the 25th anniversary of Tossed Out Treasures, and takes place on February 26th and 27th at the former Marshall's at 6317 Roswell Road.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning getting a look at this year's big event -- and doing a little "treasure-hunting" himself.
10AM and 6PM Friday and Saturday

Metro Fresh Recipe:
Veggie “Trail Mix”
Many items on the MetroFresh menu make frequent appearances because our regular customers love them so much. Veggie “Trail Mix” is one of these items. It’s a salad that just simply tastes like “health.” There’s not much mystery in this salad – it’s pretty straightforward. It’s just crunchy goodness. I created this salad many years ago when we first opened. I called it Trail Mix because it reminded me of my Aunt Ginny’s bag of trail mix she’d take on hikes. So there you go…
- 1 Bunch Broccoli finely chopped – stems removed
- 1 Head Cauliflower finely chopped
- 4-5 Carrots
- ½ cup Dried Cranberries
For the dressing –
- ½ cup Seedy Dijon Mustard
- ½ cup Honey

Kosher Salt to taste
Finely Chop Cauliflower and Broccoli with sharp knife. Chop Carrots lightly in food processor. Toss in Bowl with Cranberries and Dressing. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Will keep well for up to two days.
