The Junior League of Wilmington will hold its 34th Whale of a Sale fundraiser on Saturday, November 12. “Delaware’s Largest Garage Sale” will be held at 148 Sunset Boulevard (just off Route 13/DuPont Highway) in New Castle, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., in a space formerly occupied by a Pathmark supermarket.
The much-anticipated sale typically attracts thousands of shoppers looking for bargains on new and gently used merchandise including antiques, baby and children’s clothes and toys, books, furniture, holiday items, electronics, kitchen items, adult clothing and accessories, and much more. Many shoppers have been coming to Whale of a Sale for decades, and some even camp out the night before to be at the front of the line when the sale opens. Popular items year after year include nearly-new toys for holiday gifts, bridesmaid dresses and prom gowns, and sports equipment.
Whale of a Sale, held biennially, is one of the League’s major fundraisers, along with the Heart of the Home® Kitchen Tour. Proceeds benefit the League’s mission of training women to be leaders in the community, as well as its community programming.
Admission to the sale is free, and cash and MasterCard, Discover, and Visa are accepted.
The Junior League of Wilmington thanks Whale of a Sale sponsors Basin Road Self-Storage, Bayshore Moving & Storage, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, Elkton Road Self Storage, Out & About Magazine, Sullivan’s Steakhouse, and Tyler’s Bar & Restaurant.
