Rummage Sale


We had a very busy weekend! Starting off visiting the Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills that had a rummage sale in Bedminster, I heard of the sale and finally able to see it, supposedly a very good sale. The area is one of the most wealthy in the US and I would imagine that people are giving away nice things.


My friend Missy was going to join me with her two year old, when she arrived she panicked. A very long line for parking and the place seemed to be crazy busy. She gave up and when she tried to get out of line, a crash happened behind her… I was on my own, managed to park after about 20 minutes.


White tents with organized items, long lines to all of them. I started with the women’s boutique and was able to enter after about 15 minutes. A nice selection of clothes, the most famous brands were labeled and on a separate rack. You could find, Stella McCartney, Valentino, Versace, Moschino and much more. I found more than I was ready to keep, finally I decided on a Prada dress, Moschino skirt, Elieen Fisher top and a shirt from Lloro Piano (much more affordable than the Sample sale, I paid $10). For my 11 year daughter I got two Vera Bradley bags, $20 each, seemed brand new. I visited the children’s tent and spend $42 on two bags of clothes – JCrew, Vince, Mudd, Aeropostale etc.

Sample Sale

Hi, Fun day, decided to hunt down a few Sample sales and find out if they were any good. They are found them online, just search Sample Sale NYC, one good website is: Had time for three; Rent The Runaway, DNKY and ILoro Piana. All very different! IMG_2161IMG_2157 My favorite was ILoro Piana, just too expensive, it’s was about 60% off retail. The DNKY was not very interesting and I left quickly. The Rent a Runaway sale was great if you look for a nice designer dress but not ready to pay the price. Rent a Runaway (, rents out dresses, bags and jewelry for about a 10th of the full price. At the sale these items were sold out, there were some defects to look for. IMG_2168 I found several dresses that I could have kept, decided on a dress from Valentino Red (was $595, paid $104) and a bracelet (was $75, paid $10).
