The City of Vernon and the Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) are encouraging the community to reduce, reuse and recycle by hosting the 2015 Garage & Trunk Sale on April 18 from 8 am to 12 pm.
The Garage Sale, which builds on the success of last year’s community-wide garage sale, provides free promotional advertisements for residents hosting a garage sale at their home on April 18. These ads help reach bargain hunters drawn out by the large number of sales during the event. Find out more and register online at www.vernon.ca/garagesale by Thursday, April 9.
The Trunk Sale is an opportunity for those who are unable to host a traditional garage sale—such as residents of apartments or condos—or those who wish to participate in a larger event to sell or give away items as part of their spring cleaning efforts. Interested participants can register online at www.vernon.ca/garagesale by Thursday, April 16. Garage sale items can be brought to an assigned stall in the rear parking lot at Kal Tire Place. This event is targeting typical garage sale items such as tools and hardware, books, clothing, children’s items, electronics, antiques, garden and sports equipment and does not include retail booths. Food, plants, animals, livestock, firearms or illegal substances are not permitted at the Trunk Sale.
During the Trunk Sale, Kindale Developmental Association will be accepting clothing—including hats, belts, outerwear, and footwear—backpacks, purses, computer bags, bed sheets, comforters, bedcovers, towels, table clothes and drapes. Dirty, wet or torn items (including fabric scraps) will not be accepted for reuse or recycling.
The Garage & Trunk Sale is free for both participants and bargain hunters.
