Looking to sell, trade or give away some of your unwanted or gently used stuff? Then you’ll want to take part in the latest Trunk Sale at Okanagan College, Saturday May 24th. Organized by the Regional Waste Reduction Office, the Trunk Sale champions’ reuse and recycling, so less ends up in our landfill.
Rae Stewart, Waste Reduction Facilitator says, ‘This is your chance to do some spring cleaning, de-clutter and get your unwanted stuff into the hands of someone who can re-purpose it.. The Trunk Sale is actually one massive garage sale in the parking lot of Okanagan College, with more than 150 mini garage sales in one place. It’s all about, reuse, and bargains galore.”
Stewart adds, “Just as the name suggests, you do the selling from the trunk of your car, van or back of your pickup. Load up your vehicle with the goods you want to sell, bring a table with you if you need one, or just sell straight from the back of your vehicle. “
Stewart says the Trunk Sale has been extremely popular over the past few years and spots to sell your wares are snapped up quickly. “We take the first 150 or so registrants, and each year we have a wait list for those hoping to get in on sale day. The Trunk Sale is perfect for residents who can’t easily hold their own garage or yard sale, those that live in condos, apartments, or simply have no yard. But it’s not limited in that way, if you just want to show up and sell or trade your wares, you’re still welcome-- but you need to pre-register before sale day.”
Deadline to reserve a free spot is Wednesday May 21st. To register, call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250.469.6250. (Set up for sellers on the day of the sale will be between 7am and 8am only.)
The Trunk Sale runs from 8am until 12 pm Saturday May 24th in parking lot #17 of Okanagan College, 1000 K.L.O. Road, right next to the Student Residence buildings. Due to construction in the area, access for both sellers and buyers on sale day will be off Raymer Avenue only.
