At The Barn Sale in Hamden, Volunteers Keep on Dealing

Perhaps the reason The Barn Sale has endured for a half-century is that there’s no other place quite like it. The prices are reasonable for such a wide array of items. Besides, customers can feel good about supporting a place that donates 50 percent of its proceeds to local charities such as the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport and the Community Soup Kitchen in New Haven.

New Luxury Guesthouse Tall Tales Sprouts up at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa

The original plan was for the new, six-room boutique “beach house” in Old Saybrook to be a bit more diminutive than the elegant Three Stories next door. But flood elevations kept rising, necessitating engineering changes that resulted in a taller-than-expected building.

Options for race-goers include reserved parking spaces for tailgating, a family tailgate area, and a Vendor Village featuring fashion and accessories from exclusive boutiques. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Somerset Medical Center, which provides a variety of comprehensive emergency, medical/surgical and rehabilitative services to Central New Jersey residents.
