The league’s 34th Whale of a Sale fundraiser will be held on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 148 Sunset Boulevard (just off Route 13) in New Castle, from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., in a space formerly occupied by a Pathmark supermarket.

The much-anticipated sale typically attracts thousands of shoppers looking for bargains on new and gently used merchandise, including antiques, baby and children’s clothes and toys, books, furniture, holiday items, electronics, kitchen items, adult clothing and accessories, and much more. Many shoppers have been coming to Whale of a Sale for decades, and some even camp out the night before to be at the front of the line when the sale opens. Popular items year after year include nearly-new toys for holiday gifts, bridesmaid dresses and prom gowns, and sports equipment, a league press release said.

“We expect this year’s Whale of a Sale to be the biggest and best yet, with plenty of quality merchandise and a great location that will be very convenient for shoppers,” Stephanie Graev, the league’s president, said in the release.

Whale of a Sale, held biennially, is one of the league’s major fundraisers, along with the Heart of the Home® Kitchen Tour. Proceeds benefit the league’s mission of training women to be leaders in the community, as well as its community programming. Admission to the sale is free, and cash and MasterCard, Discover, and Visa will be accepted.
