Looking to sell, trade or give away some of your unwanted or pre-loved stuff and can’t hold your own garage sale? Then you’ll want to take part in the latest Trunk Sale at Okanagan College, Saturday September 28th. Organized by the Regional Waste Reduction Office, the event champions’ reuse and recycling, with one huge garage sale in the Okanagan College parking lot from 8am until noon.
Rae Stewart, Waste Reduction Facilitator with the Regional District says, “This is a great opportunity to unclutter your life! These Trunk Sales encourage you to get your unwanted stuff to someone else who could use it, so it’s about reuse, bargains, and less ending up needlessly in the landfill.”
Stewart explains, “This is an opportunity for people who wouldn’t normally be able to host 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, everyone’s welcome to take part.”
Stewart adds there’s been tremendous response to previous sales, so if you’re looking to be a vendor on sale day, you need to sign up early. “Just as the name suggests, you do the selling from the trunk of your car, van or back of your pickup. There’s no charge to be a vendor, but you need to pre-register beforehand.”
Deadline for registrations is Wednesday September 25th. To register as a vendor, please call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250.469.6250.
If you don’t want to sell stuff at the Trunk Sale, but love bargains, you’re encouraged to come out and shop on sale day. The Trunk Sale runs from 8am until 12 pm Saturday, September 28th in parking Lot #17 of Okanagan College, 1000 K.L.O. Road, right next to the Student Residence buildings.
