Mark Your Calendar: October 1st-3rd


For anyone who lives in Northern NJ who likes "junktiquing" - mark your calendars for The Far Hills Rummage Sale October 1st-3rd. It's at the Far Hills Fair Grounds (which is actually just a sports field) from 9:30-3:30 on Friday and Saturday, and the Sunday bag sale 12:30-3:30. It's one of my favorite places to go for great deals and every year I have found something totally worth the trip.

Now some of you might turn up your nose at the term "Rummage Sale" - but this one is the exception. First of all, it's huge with multiple tents for different things (furniture, housewares, clothes, kids toys, etc). Secondly, all the proceeds go to the Visiting Nurse Association so it's for a good cause. Most importantly - it's Far Hills with the giant estates, mammoth mansions and horse farms  - and rich people get rid of nice stuff.

Some of my favorite deals over the years include: 2 Pottery Barn throw pillows - covers and down-filled inserts for $5 a pair (the inserts alone new would have been $40), 4 panels of floral curtains for $16, a brand new Tommy Hilfiger skirt for $8 with the tags still on it, sets of ceramic flower pots for $2, and a mahogany side table for $8. I get giant stacks of books for $2 or less each. I've seen friends get sets duponi silk curtains, designer purses, adorable kids clothing, artwork, chairs, dressers, coffee tables... I could go on and on. It's totally worth checking out.

Anyone want to carpool?
