Come one come all Bargain hunters!! This is the mecca of savings for everything you are looking for. The Visiting Nurse Association has this as their biggest fundraiser of the year and it's well worth your attendance. No entry fee. 3 days long! May 3rd, 4th, & 5th!!!

Many of you have probably heard me talk about this sale so excitedly and have asked I let you know when it is so you too can attend.

Come alone or come with kids it's up to you. Check out the website below to get more info:

Details:

There is a tent that serves food, hamburgers, coffee, etc.. I recommend arriving early to shop. To re-iterate what Iz said:: This is a great flea market\yard sale! I have attended it several times and bought lots of good stuff. Get there early, however, as there are many tents in which to shop and LOTS of folks also looking for bargains. There are 20 tents with categories, a select few take credit cards, ALL take cash. There are sizes for everyone, and yes there's a tent just for MENSWEAR! - Michael i know you're happy. :)

Here's the scoop on the 3 days:

Day 1 - it's first look at everything that's been acquired & sorted over the last month by volunteers. People typically start to line up at a tent of their choice as early as 830.

Day 2 - regular day of shopping

Day 3- HALF PRICE DAY! - so every tent all items are half price, and most tents also have a "buy the bag" option. Each tent has their own pricing, so as an example the office supplies tent does a $5.00 buy the bag, where bon ton has 3 different sizes to chose from $25, $55, $75.

I take Friday off and go for a few hours, last year I stayed almost all day, and I come again on Sunday for the buy a bag for the day. I'll give everyone that reply's yes my contact info in an email a few days prior. I hope all of you find really awesome treasures! ~Dani

You can take a train from Penn Station, NYC, to the Far Hills station stop in NJ on the Gladstone line. I think it's $14.25 each way, but it might be cheaper if you buy a round trip tik. Also, I think they have discounts for seniors, students, and disabled. Here is a link for more info:

    Got there late. Called Michael several times but unable to reach, so viewed contents of several tents. Only bought books, the last thing I need, and a hot-dog. I just didn't seem to be in a shopping mode today. Hope everyone had a good time.

    Drats! Have a work emergency that makes it impossible for me to leave early. I will try my best to make it there today and will look for group\call Michael upon arrival. If not, will head out over the week-end. Happy shopping all.

    One of our members, Rose, who lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, is picking me up in Hell's Kitchen on 10th Avenue and West 47th Street, at 7:30am on Friday morning. She has one more seat in her car if anyone wants to come with us. If so, call me on my cell at (347)[masked]

    I'll be driving from Brooklyn (Greenpoint) if anyone wants to catch a ride. I will be leaving very early if it starts at 8:30. I'll try to get my car in for an AC update before then. Right now it's pretty lame AC, if that's a problem for anyone.

      I would like to share the ride. Please email me? Thanks

    • Michael Kim Jamal R.

      Hi Lucille. You can take a train from Penn Station, NYC. Also, I may be driving, and, if so, I might have a spot for you in the car.

    Unfortunately, I do not have transportation to get there.

    April 6, 2013

    • Natalia Tinida W.

      There is public transportation to get there from Manhattan. Also, u can get a ride with one of our fellow THRIFTAHOLICS members if u want!

      April 6, 2013

  • Michael Kim Jamal R.

    Natalia and I will be driving from Inwood. We can take 3 people (maybe 4 small ones!) with us! As for public transportation out there, I don't know. I would get in touch with Dani, one of our co-organizers. She is the one leading this event, and will have more info on it.

    April 5, 2013

    • puturrecordson

      I'm in Washington Heights (near Ft. Tryon park). Maybe I'll catch a ride with you? OR if someone wants to ride with me, I can drive.

  • Pamela

    Anyone with a car going from Brooklyn?

    April 6, 2013

  • puturrecordson

    do I really have to indicate guests? I don't wanna take up the spot since it seems like there's no limit to how many people can actually attend.

    April 2, 2013

    • Michael Kim Jamal R.

      Hi Puturrecordson. Yes, you do need to RSVP for your guests. Please call or text me if you have any questions on this. My cell is 347.523.3937. Thanks!

    This is a great flea market\yard sale! I have attended it several times and bought lots of good stuff. Get there early, however, as there are many tents in which to shop and LOTS of folks also looking for bargains. I will know closer to the date whether I will go this year and post accordingly. If I do, I will be driving from NJ and will be glad to give a lift to those who can make their way to the PATH in Jersey City.
