Read the press on the Barn and Tent Sale: CLICK HERE 

On Saturday, December 8 and 9, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on both days, we will have a Huge Barn and Tent Sale at 1 Stockton Sergeantsville Road in Stockton, New Jersey.

Partial proceeds from the sale will benefit Thanksgiving in the Country and the Facial Reconstructive Center of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

This barn and tent sale was to have coincided with a tour of homes that Thanksgiving in The Country sponsors each year to benefit the Facial Reconstructive Center of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Sadly that tour of homes had to be canceled due to Hurricane Sandy and not only did Thanksgiving in The Country not make money - they LOST money. Won't you join us in our effort to help them make a little money for the Facial Reconstructive Center? The Hospital's unit does not and will not turn away a child in need of help should they lack finances.

Meanwhile,
click here for a small album of photos that will serve a sort of virtual tour of our home.

You will be nicely overwhelmed by what you find in our sale. Items include antique furniture, antiques large and small, home furnishings, large collectible signs, vintage clothing, new and unused designer label clothing, linens and towels, gorgeous quilts, a massive vinyl record collection, framed original art and prints, tools, electronics, kitchenware, household appliances, electrical, shutters original to the home, vintage toys, paper and ephemera, vintage racing bikes, exercise equipment, and a massive book collection from the private library of book collector and former co-owner of Left Bank Books in Lambertville, NJ, Lewis Matheney.

We will be posting loads of photos of items in the sale for your previewing pleasure in the next few days.

Please come back frequently in the upcoming days as more information becomes available.
We will also be posting photos of our home's interior for those who wanted to visit us on the tour of homes.

NOTE: PARKING IN OUR DRIVEWAY IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE, but neighbors and local businesses are making parking available within a short walk to our property, including directly across the street from us and a large yard directly behind the barn (closer walking distance than the back door of our house to the barn). In addition, we will permit access to our driveway for pickup of items, and we will provide shuttle service to and from the center of town all day both days - PLUS delivery service is available within a reasonable distance for a minimal charge. Look for plenty of signs and follow volunteers' directions for an easy visit.

All items have already been marked down so that EVERYONE may benefit from this sale - especially since the terrible weather destroyed the efforts of Thanksgiving In The Country to see success from their big-hearted efforts.
Please stop by and pick up some VERY reasonably-priced items and know that your money will go a LONG way in helping children in need of facial reconstructive surgery.

DEALERS: Items are priced low so that you may optimize resale. 

The barn is fully heated. A dressing room is available to try on clothes. Complimentary snacks and drinks will be served. A turntable is available to test all vinyl records. Electrical outlets are available to test all electronics and electric items.

VINYL RECORD
COLLECTION
A turntable and sound system are available to test and listen to all vinyl records.

DISCONET Dance Mixes are harder to find any more, but you'll find no shortage of them in the sale, from box sets like the one you see below to a wide variety of music stars from the 60s, 70s, and 80s (see Grace Jones below). All 12" and Dance Mix music in this collection was inherited from and utilized by veejays and the former owner of TELEGENICS, a music video subscription service for bars and nightclubs popular in the 1980s. The collection is vast, it's thorough, and it's ultimately a dream come true for DJs and music fans in general.
