Inova Loudoun Ladies Board Rummage Sale arrives this weekend

After collecting donations that filled 11 tractor trailer trucks, volunteers with the Inova Loudoun Ladies Board are busy unloading and setting up items for the 79th annual rummage sale this weekend at Morven Park Equestrian Center.

“It is bigger and better than ever this year,” said event chair Barbara McNeil. “We look forward to seeing people come out and enjoy the weekend.”

One of the highlights of the event is the silent auction which runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Teresa Wheeler said this is her third year as chair of the silent auction and she has seen “many unique items this year.”

Wheeler said one of her favorite silent auction items is an arcade-style Pac-Man machine that will operate with or without coins. They also have a four-night vacation through Exclusive Resorts, a jewelry box filled with vintage jewelry, English stained glass from the 1880s, as well as gift cards from local businesses, sports memorabilia and other specialty items.

McNeil recommends shoppers come early and buy the “early bird tickets” for $12 in advance or $15 at the door.

Other insider shopping tips include wearing closed toe shoes, dark clothes, and leave large purses or backpacks at home.

McNeil said everything is priced to sell, and there are a lot of great deals to be found.

“All of the prices are tremendous,” McNeil said.

The Ladies Board of Inova Loudoun's rummage sale draws thousands of people from around the mid-atlantic region. The 55,000 square foot space is filled with everything from antiques, collectibles, books, furniture, clothing and accessories for the whole family, tools, sports equipment, small appliances, household items and décor, designer lables, electronics, holiday items, and toys.

The sale is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 14 and 15 at 41580 Sunday Morning Lane, off Rt. 15 North in Leesburg. Admission is free during regular sale hours, doors will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday for the early bird hour.

“The first time I walked into this place, it blew me away what these ladies are able to accomplish by creating a completely stocked store. It is amazing what effort goes into it and it is very special,” Wheeler said.

Teresa and Mike Wheeler have been wonderful to Loudoun County, as benefactors and conservationists who don’t just write a check to a charity, but use their personal time and energy to do the real work.
