Spring Rummage Sale

Twice a year, in the spring and in the fall, there is a fantastic rummage sale located about 30 minutes away from SOMA at the Far Hills Fairgrounds. The Far Hills Rummage Sale is put together as a fundraiser for the Visiting Nurses Association of Somerset Hills and it is an adventure!

It is best to go in the morning as the good stuff gets snapped up in a flash. Opening day is always a Friday and things tend to be priced a bit higher because that’s when the selection is widest and the dealers know it. However, if you aren’t looking for anything specific it pays off to wait until Saturday when prices fall a bit.

This is a fantastic opportunity to hunt for decorative accessories for your home. They tend to have interesting items in every category imaginable. From jewelry to furniture, vintage textiles to halloween costumes. I ventured out last spring in the midst of days of torrential rains and walked away with a pair of mismatched foot stools that I had no idea I needed. I couldn’t leave them behind!

If this sounds like a great way to spend a day then clear your calendar because the spring sale is coming up this weekend (May 5, 6 and 7). Doors open at 9:30… see you there!
