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 25th. 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 the perfect opportunity to un-clutter your life, and get your unwanted stuff into the hands of someone who wants it. The Trunk Sale is one giant garage sale in the parking lot of Okanagan College. It’s about bargains, reuse, and lots of fun.”
Stewart adds “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. These events just keep on growing in popularity, so we expect a big draw for the limited vendor spots available. ”
Stewart says trunk sales are big in the U.K., but catching on here as well. “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. “
Deadline to reserve a free spot is Wednesday May 23rd. 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 25th in parking lot #17 of Okanagan College, 1000 K.L.O. Road, right next to the Student Residence buildings.
As an extra draw, the Trunk Sale will coincide with a huge garage sale of gently used electronics and office furniture put on by Okanagan College in the automotive shop on campus.
