Whale Of A Sale


In April 2022, the Junior League of Wilmington will hold its 37th Whale of a Sale, one of the state’s oldest and most time-honored fundraising sales. Known as “Delaware’s Largest Garage Sale,” it attracts thousands of shoppers – some of whom camp out overnight to be first in line! – to a warehouse full of quality new and gently-used merchandise.  We will continue to monitor the public health guidance from state officials; you can find event updates here and on our social media pages.

Since Whale of a Sale began in 1980, generations of shoppers have returned to the Sale for bargains on antiques, children’s clothes and toys, books, furniture, holiday items, electronics, kitchen items, designer clothing, accessories, and much more.

Proceeds from Whale of a Sale support the Junior League of Wilmington’s Mission to train women to be leaders in the community, as well as its community impact efforts.

We can’t wait to see you there!
