Visiting Nurses Rummage Sale Far Hills NJIt’s official… London and Maddie are “back to school” at Mendham Township Elementary today.  They’re excited about a new school year, seeing their friends and meeting their teachers.  Back to school also makes me want a fresh start, so I’ve been cleaning out our closets and donating clothes, old computers, and toys for the semi-annual Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) Rummage Sale in Far Hills, NJ. Back in the Spring, our family was so busy that we actually missed the dates to drop off donations, so we’ve got twice as much stuff to drop off at the tents. Don’t miss the opportunity to donate, or the chance to shop… mark your calendar with the following dates:

The famous VNA Rummage Sale, held every fall and spring at the Fairgrounds in Far Hills, New Jersey, is New Jersey’s largest and oldest. As a major fundraiser for the VNA, one of the Roxiticus Desperate Housewives’ favorite charities, 100% of the proceeds support the VNA’s programs and enable the VNA to care for those who are uninsured or underinsured. If you haven’t been before, prepare yourself! Bargains are everywhere, and the selection, spread out over 75,000 square feet, is incredible: clothing, appliances, antiques, sporting goods, furniture, dishes, books…you name it and you’ll find it there.

PAYMENT FOR MERCHANDISE: Shoppers can pay for goods with cash or checks (proper identification needed). An ATM is available on site. Credit cards not accepted. Admission and parking is free. For more information, the Rummage phone line is (908) 781-6445.

What the VNA Rummage Sale accepts, and other guidelines:

  • As you box your household items or bag your clothing, please sort like items together.
  • Keep in mind that if the VNA cannot sell an item at the end of the sale, they will have to use Rummage Sale proceeds to pay for disposal, so please only donate saleable items.
  • Please limit the weight of each box or bag of donations to less than 20 lb. for easy handling by volunteers.
  • CLOTHING, SHOES, & CLOTHING ACCESSORIES: The VNA accepts clean items in good to excellent condition. The VNA cannot accept clothes with stains, tears, worn elastic bands, broken zippers or are missing buttons, shoes without buckles or laces, and belts that are tattered and worn.
  • ELECTRICAL: The VNA Rummage Sale accepts clean electrical items in working condition. Vacuum cleaners must have all parts and model must be less than 10 years old. Please box or bag all parts together and attach to the electrical item.
  • FURNITURE: The VNA will accept furniture in good to excellent condition. Luggage must be in excellent condition. No locked luggage without keys or combination. Car seats for infants and children must be manufactured within five years, a SAFETY CODE requirement.

  • TOYS: The VNA will accept all games, stuffed animals, dolls, toys, and puzzles. They cannot accept large plastic toys that are broken, missing pieces or have split parts.
