By Jim Donovan: If you like garage sales, well have I got a Whale of a Sale for you!
This Saturday, March 2nd, the Junior League of Wilmington will be holding its 32nd Whale of a Sale. Since 1980 it’s been featured as “Delawares Largest Garage Sale.”
The sale will be held from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. at 700 White Clay Center in Newark, Delaware. Admission is FREE.
The Junior League of Wilmington collects donations from members and local merchants to sell to the community at affordable prices. In addition to gently used items, the Whale of a Sale contains sections offering new merchandise, furniture and antiques. This popular event draws many crowds who often wait in line overnight to be the first to shop the Whale of a Sale.
This event is open to the public and attracts thousands of shoppers throughout the tri-state region. Whale of a Sale has a large number of veterans including many shoppers who have been attending for 20+ years. Whale shoppers include business owners stocking up on antiques and collectibles, fashion divas in leotards to make trying on clothes a snap, and savvy shoppers who recognize a good value.
Proceeds support the Junior League of Wilmington’s mission and community programming.
