Regional garage sale set

The City of Vernon and the Regional District of North Okanagan are hosting the 2015 garage and trunk sale

The City of Vernon and the Regional District of North Okanagan are encouraging the community to reduce, reuse and recycle by hosting the 2015 garage and trunk sale April 18 from 8 a.m. to noon.

The garage sale provides free promotional advertisements for residents hosting a garage sale at their home 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 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 April 16.

“Garage sale items can be brought to an assigned stall in the rear parking lot at Kal Tire Place,” said Tanya Laing Gahr, communications co-ordinator.

“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.”

During the trunk sale, Kindale Developmental Association will accept clothing, including hats, belts, outerwear, and footwea, backpacks, purses, computer bags, bed sheets, comforters, bedcovers, towels, table clothes and drapes.

The garage and trunk sale is free for participants. For more information about the event, e-mail recycle@rdno.ca or call 250-550-3700.
