This weekend's Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills' Rummage Sale starts tomorrow, opening at 9:30 a.m., a sale that is such a tradition that there are people who take off from work to attend. Pickers from NYC line up early on opening day.
Take a list of what you need or you will be overwhelmed and forget half your stuff. We have purchased a sink protector that fit a twenty-year-old sink for a quarter. Located a copy of a current best-selling non-fiction book and found a 1967 copy of Gans' classic study The Levittowners. Matched a computer cable that we needed and purchased a nearly-new London Fog raincoat for $3. For 50-cents we got the nice soup plate under our basil plant and matched a broken piece of china.
Be prepared to spend time there. You may have to stand in line to get into some of the "stores". Take small change. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. If you get hungry you can get a hot dog and a soda.
