The 76th Annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale
The 76th Annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale will be held Saturday, October 18 and Sunday, October 19, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with free admission at Morven Park Equestrian Center located 41793 Tutt Lane, ( Rt 15 and Tutt Lane) in Leesburg, Virginia. Please use the full street address when using GPS for directions. Remember the Early Bird Hour is from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on Saturday! More details below.
The Sale is affectionately known as “rummage week” by volunteers, and with good reason. It takes four to five days to set up the tables and unload the equivalent of 12 tractor trailers full of donations! Last year more than 400 volunteers worked alongside our members to host the sale.
It begins as an overwhelming mountain of clothes, furniture, dishes, toys, books, etc. as donations are unloaded. As the days wear on, the mountain eventually takes shape into organized departments such as Holiday; Boutique; Children’s; Furniture; Jewelry; the Man Cave; and so on. If you’ve never been to the Sale, you really should come this year! Better yet, come early and volunteer with us.
At the sale, you will find 40,000+ square feet of treasures – all under cover in the indoor arena and barns. You can buy furniture, clothing for the entire family, household items, décor and holiday items, small appliances, tools, sports and exercise equipment, antiques and collectibles, gift items, jewelry, books, linens and draperies, small tools and appliances, stereo equipment. It’s all here! Click Here for a map of the sale departments!
Remember to visit the Silent Auction, held Saturday only. Bidding closes at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, but you can start bidding early in the day. You’ll find dining certificates, golf outtings, dining, artwork, beauty treatments, overnight resort stays…it’s a high end collection of donations that you don’t want to miss!
The Early Bird Hour is a special shopping event held Saturday, October 18 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. only.
