100 locations in FOSH/VWB Garage Sale today

Something to delight everyone can be found at today's annual Garage Sale.
Thousands of visitors are expected to flood Plainfield today for the FOSH/VWB Garage Sale which runs from 9 AM to 4 PM.

One hundred homes have signed up to participate. Homes can be spotted easily by the balloons flying at the curb. Maps will be available at each site.

While many are individual homeowners offering personal stuff, several sites are always dedicated to raising money for a favorite charity or cause, such as animal rescue programs, the Plainfield Symphony and other organizations.

In addition to the many homes in the Sleepy Hollow area that are participating, a number of locations in the Van Wyck Brooks Historic Disrict have signed on in this year's joint effort.

A good place to start would be along Watchung or Central Avenues and then use one of the maps to scout out the rest.

NOTE: Upper Watchung Avenue is in the process of being readied for repaving, so mind the edges of the street, which have gravel fill for now. Spike heels are definitely NOT recommended!
