THE JUNIOR LEAGUE OF WILMINGTON TO HOLD 35TH WHALE OF A SALE “Delaware’s Largest Garage Sale” Set for November 10

WILMINGTON, DE, October 26, 2018 – The Junior League of Wilmington’s Whale of a Sale, known as “Delaware’s Largest Garage Sale,” returns November 10, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. The much-anticipated Sale typically attracts thousands of shoppers looking for bargains on new and gently used merchandise including antiques, toys, books, furniture, holiday items, electronics, kitchen items, clothing, 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 sports equipment.

 

“The Junior League of Wilmington is celebrating the 100th anniversary of our founding in 2018, so this year’s 35th Whale of a Sale feels extra special to the League. We expect this year’s Sale to be as exciting as ever, with great deals on high-quality merchandise, and we are so grateful for the shoppers who come year after year to help support our mission,” said Angela Gustavsen, President of the Junior League of Wilmington.

 

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, which is currently focused on empowering young women and their families to achieve their potential and positively impact their community.

 

“We are so excited to present this year’s Whale of a Sale. In just a matter of weeks, the whole League comes together to transform an empty space into the ultimate bargain bazaar for the savvy shopper,” said Whale of a Sale Co-Chair, Rachael Becker.

 

Admission to the sale is free, and cash and MasterCard, and Visa are accepted. The Sale is located in the New Castle Commons near the Easter Seals and the Justice of the Peace (near Route 141 and just off Route 37).

 

The Junior League of Wilmington thanks Whale of a Sale Sponsors Emory Hill for their generous donation of the space, and Bayshore Moving & Storage, Stanley Steamer, WJBR, and Delaware Today.
