Mark your calendars, the Wild Wild Westboro Garage Sale is a go!

17 04 2012

When: From 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m on Saturday June 2, 2012 (Rain or shine!)
Where: Outdoors at the Dovercourt Recreation Centre (near the wading pool)

It’s a great opportunity to get rid of stuff you hate, and bring home new stuff to love. :)

Sellers! Take advantage of the after-swim crowds in the park on Saturday… as well as susceptible parents with coins in their pockets! Here’s what you need to know:

  • A limited number of tables are available to rent at $10/each.
  • Book now to get the spot you want. Choose your table location here and then refer to your table number when you book online (navigate to “community events”), by phone, or in person at Dovercourt.
  • Don’t have time to sell your stuff? The WCA has its own table and is accepting donations of gently used items for sale (just let us know beforehand if you plan to do so). We sell your donated goods “best offer” style, and the proceeds go towards funding our activities for the year.
  • Please note, you are responsible for the removal and disposal of all unsold items. We recommend donating them to Goodwill, the Salvation Army, or St.Vincent de Paul

Wondering what to sell? Start with those boxes in the basement and old toy boxes!

On the day of sale we ask you to arrive at 7:30 to start setting up your table.

The Wild Wild Westboro Garage Sale is rapidly becoming the big day for garage sales across Westboro. (We’re thrilled, and we thank those who donate a percentage of the proceeds of private tables to the WCA!)

Shoppers! Here’s what you need to know:

  • Arrive early (but not too early) to snag the best deals
  • Bring change
  • In past years we’ve had a wide variety of goods including baby gear, children’s clothing, toys, household items, DVDs, CDs, books, new and vintage knickknacks of all kinds, and much much more. You never know what you’re going to find.

Also, it’s a good time for the good citizens of Westboro to buy and/or renew their memberships and get the inside scoop about what’s new in the ‘hood. Stop by our table and say hello. We would love to meet you.

Please help us spread the word. This is a very important fundraiser for us, as the proceeds of the table rentals and WCA table supports our projects for the year.  Thank you for your support! And a big thank you to our good friends at Dovercourt too! We couldn’t do this without their help!
