My assistant innkeeper, Alice, knows I'm always on the lookout for good deals on furniture or accessories for the Whistling Swan Inn. I was almost giddy with excitement when she told me this week about the Byram Animal Rescue Kindness Squad (B.A.R.K.S) garage sale to be held at Wild West City, Netcong, New Jersey, on April 14-15, 2012.
This is the garage sale to end all garage sales, with over 200,000 - yes, I said 200,000 items. Clothing, furniture, tools, housewares, china, silver, crystal and jewelry will be on sale from 9:00-5:00 pm. B.A.R.K.S., a non-profit organization, works in association with the Byram Township Pound and has been helping stray and abandoned animals since 1973. All proceeds from the sale will benefit homeless animals like the little beauty in the photo.
With list in hand...I'll be there as soon as the last breakfast dish is put away.
... and so the adventures continue...join us.
