A Baby Phat leather jacket -- with the $550 price tag still on it -- for $20. Teen tops from names like Abercrombie, Lacoste and Hollister for $.50. And a pair of Ferragamo pumps for $10.

This isn't an April Fool's joke. These are some of the items that will be sold at the Jewish Relief Agency's second warehouse clothing sale this Sunday, April 3, 2011.

The organization's first sale, back in October, raised$10,000 for the food distribution charity and provided bargains for more than 1,000 shoppers.

"We had a trememndous turnout and support from the community," said Amy Krulik of the JRA. "And so many people asked, 'please, please tell us you're doing this again.'"

And so they are. Again, the food warehouse is filled with tables of donated clothing bargains, like designer dresses, including a new-with-tags Nicole Miller for $20, a Dooney and Bourke purse for $10, and designer jeans for $10.

Dresses are $5, men's and women's tops are $2 and bottoms are $3. And there are tons of clothing items for boys, girls, babies and teens, all priced at two for $1.

"You cannot get better prices anywhere in Philadelphia than two-for-a-dollar," Krulik says. "The kids clothes are really priced to move."

Doors open for the sale at 9:00 a.m., but Krulik warns that shoppers began lining up around 7:00 a.m. at the last sale.

The sale location is the Jewish Relief Agency's food warehouse at 10980 Dutton Road, Philadelphia, Pa., 19154. For directions, click here.

The Jewish Relief Agency provides monthly food deliveries to more than 2,900 needy familes in the five-county Philadelphia area and will provide food to anyone in need, regardless of religious affiliation.
