MADISON, MS (WLBT) It's a great time of year for some outdoor shopping.

This weekend, you can find the Garden Gate Gift Shop and Café at Madison Ridgeland Academy. It's only held once a year. Parents and other organizers have been holding the event for 17 years, giving anyone a chance to snatch up unique gifts and home accessories.

The gift shop is one of the fundraisers this weekend that will pull in about $100,000 for the school. "We use the money to better our campus, also for academics, to improve computer and science labs, that sort of thing," said organizer Louann Woidtke.

The weekend fundraiser also includes a tour of several gardens called "The Gardens of Madison County", and a Friday night party with a silent auction. The gift shop and garden tours run through Sunday.
