Since 1980, the Whale of a Sale has been featured as "Delaware's Largest Garage Sale."  

The Junior League of Wilmington collects donations from members and local merchants to sell to the community at affordable prices. In addition to gently used items, the Whale of a Sale contains sections offering new merchandise, furniture and antiques. This popular event draws many crowds who often wait in line overnight to be the first to shop the Whale of a Sale.

This event is open to the public and attracts thousands of shoppers throughout the tri-state region. Whale of a Sale has a large number of veterans including many shoppers who have been attending for 20+ years. Whale shoppers include business owners stocking up on antiques and collectibles, fashion divas in leotards to make trying on clothes a snap, and savvy shoppers who recognize a good value.

Proceeds support the Junior League of Wilmington’s mission and community programming.
