The Wild Wild Westboro Garage Sale

2 06 2011

… is almost upon us. If you haven’t heard, it’s going to be on Saturday June 4, and it’s bigger than ever.

We’ve had a record-breaking response to table rentals so we’ve just added a few extra. Tables are only $10, so if you don’t have one yet, book today before it’s too late. (You can book online at!)

Do you have goods to donate to a worthy cause? The WCA is accepting donations of  new or secondhand items for our table. Just find us on the morning of the sale and we’ll take care of the rest. Everything we sell is “pay what you can” and monies raised help offset our operating costs for the year.  This is a big fundraiser for us and we need your support!

Please note, there is no rain date.

A note to vendors:

  • Members of the WCA will begin setting up tables starting around 7:00 a.m. Please arrive by 7:30 to start setting up your area. Please do not set up inside the wading pool.
  • You are responsible for the removal of all unsold merchandise. Bring it back home, or better yet, donate it to charity. Also, the Community Bookcase in the upstairs lounge is always in need of good, gently-used books. Consider bringing a few up there.
  • Also in regards to unsold goods, this weekend is City of Ottawa’s Give Away Weekend. Leave stuff at the end of your driveway and it might magically disappear by the morning.


  • Bring small change! Wear good shoes! :)
  • We have a lot of vendors this year, and you will love the huge assortment of treasures to be found. Please stop by if you’re going to be in the area (there are lots of yard/garage sales going on in Westboro on that day)!
  • The WCA will  have its own tables: one will be for selling our own goods, the second is for membership renewal. This is a good time to renew your membership or, if you haven’t already, bought a new one. Membership allows you to vote at our annual general meeting and helps support the operation of this website and everything we do.

Please forward this information to your friends and neighbours. The more the merrier!

We hope to see you on Saturday!

We’d also like to send a big thank you to the staff at Dovercourt … without them this event would not be possible. Thank you Dovercourt!
