Where is Foster City? Is a question people ask all the time? Well it is located 25 miles south of San Francisco along the San Francisco Peninsula. It is about 30 miles north of San Jose. San Mateo is to the West, and San Francisco to the East. Did you know Foster City is built on an engineered
landfill on the bay? Foster City is a community that is environmentally concision. On March 16, 2011 Go Green Speakers Series Event kicks off. You will learn how to conserve water and beautify your garden using plants

The 22nd San Jose Junior League Rummage Sale

It is time once again for the 22nd annual San Jose Junior League Rummage Sale. I started going to this sale back in the late 1980s. With my mother and sisters, would make a whole day out of it. Would have our breakfast and lunch out there while standing in line, strategizing what department we would head to first. You have to know where you’re going, because the place is 45,000 square feet and it can be overwhelming. There are signs posted for every department, like furniture, linens, clothing, electronics, sporting goods, footwear, appliances and baby supplies to name a few. I will tell you this furniture and appliance goes first. If you like shopping for high quality merchandise at bargain prices, this is the place to be. I suggest you get there early, because the line is long.
Junior League Rummage Sale is held this weekend March 12th and 13th at the San Jose County Fair Ground from 9am to 4pm. There also is a Community Health Fair out there on March 12th 8am to noon. This is great for families with children, because they get free vision, dental and other health screenings. All you bargain hunters and families with children get out to the San Jose Junior League Rummage Sale.
Happy Bargain Hunting!
