VNA Rummage Sale Donation Days

For years - maybe decades - the Visiting Nurse Association's Rummage Sales in Far Hills have been a saving grace for the smarter members of our families.

Someone moving into their first apartment? Go to the VNA sale for a kitchen table and chairs, a few basic cookbooks, measuring cups, bowls, flatwear, lamps, and even a bookcase or two.

New babies or kids growing up? Clothing, toys, games, kids books, furniture.

Need clothes for work or play? You could find almost anything in any size...some with the tags still attached.

Now, though, at our house we have reached the stage of downsizing, decluttering, and, unfortunately, disposing of the household effects of family members who are going into nursing homes or are deceased.

So it is time to give back to the VNA. From September 4th through September 22nd, Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., they are accepting donations for the October Rummage Sale.

In the next ten days got through your stuff, pull out those no longer needed items, and donate them to the VNA.

Mark the fall VNA Rummage Sale sale dates on your calendar: October 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

At one time I worked for a company where a number of the employees took a vacation day on the first day of the sale. They said it was well worth it!
