The Wild Wild WESTboro Garage Sale

25 05 2010

It’s on!

Saturday June 5, 2010 from 8:00 – 11:00 a.m.

This is an event you won’t want to miss. Come for the deals, and stay for lunch … and for the music! Saturday is the annual Music in the Park event too. (View the PDF for more info about Music in the Park.)

NEW this year: The WCA is selling rainbarrels as a special one-time only fundraiser. If you don’t already have a rainbarrel (or are thinking of picking up a second one!) now is the time to pick one up.

These are very good quality barrels from Arbour Environmental Shoppe and are crafted from recycled food grade barrels. (Ed: We’ve had ours for 10 years and haven’t had a single issue with it.)

Weather experts are predicting a dry summer. Let’s keep Westboro green! The use of rainbarrels for rain water collection gives gardeners and homeowners a convenient supply of cleaner water for use in their gardens, divert water from our overburdened sewer systems and it’s a neat way to save a few pennies on our water bills.

The WCA is selling the rainbarrels as a fundraiser for only $79. Order by phone at Dovercourt 613-798-8950 or in person. All rainbarrels need to be picked up at the garage sale.

Here’s the  nitty gritty for the Wild Wild WESTboro garage sale bargain hunters:
You will be amazed at what your neighbours have stored away in their closets and basements. Come early! Last year we had baby clothes, plants, toys, games, books, linens, records, furniture, crafts, artwork, DVDs, kitchen items, and much much more. Highlights included a hardshell Thule rooftop cargo carrier for the car, antique chairs, and one snazzy red purse. You never know what you’ll find.

Deets for the sellers:

  • Garage sale tables are $10 to rent for the duration of the sale. Select your table on the map (PDF), and then book online, by phone or in person at Dovercourt. Online table rental is new this year. (Thank you Dovercourt for setting it up for us!) The best spots will go really quickly so book right away.
  • Please be at the park by 7:30 a.m. to set up.
  • Don’t have enough to fill a table? Please consider donating your goods to the WCA table. Thank you!
