    This three-day weekend sale in Somerset County is called the "Kentucky Derby of rummage sales." (Published Friday, May 7, 2010)

    Bargain hunters can bask in shopping paradise this weekend at New Jersey’s oldest and largest rummage sale.

    From May 7-9, the Visiting Nurses Association of Somerset Hills will be hosting its bi-annual Rummage Sale at the Fairgrounds in Far Hills, New Jersey. 

    This “Kentucky Derby of rummage sales” offers deals on donated goods ranging from clothing, jewelry and daily household items to high-end furniture and antiques from millionaire estates in Somerset Hills.

    The VNA have sponsored the Rummage Sale, which spans over 75,000 square feet-- an area larger than a football field-- for more than 100 years. All of the proceeds go to the care of the uninsured and underinsured, and the unsold items are collected by charities after the event.

    The Bernards Township Health Department will also be giving free H1N1 shots to individuals six months and older, and the VNA nurses will be offering free blood pressure screenings.

    The Rummage Sale will continue to run Saturday 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and Sunday 12:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. For more information, visit Visiting Nurses Association.
