UNCLUTTER YOUR LIFE AT A TRUNK SALE
Looking to sell, trade or give away some of your unwanted or previously-loved stuff but can’t hold your own garage sale? Then you’ll want to take part in the first ever Trunk Sale being held at the Salmon Arm Okanagan College campus on Saturday September 13th. Organized by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s Waste Reduction Program, the event champions the concept of reuse and recycle, with one giant garage sale in the Okanagan College parking lot.
Carmen Fennell, Waste Reduction Facilitator with the Regional District says, “This is a great opportunity to unclutter your life! These Trunk Sales encourage you to get your unwanted stuff to someone else who could use it, so it’s about reuse, bargains and having less items end up needlessly in the landfill.”
Fennell explains, “This is an opportunity for people who wouldn’t normally be able to host their own garage or yard sale, those that live in condos, apartments, or simply have no yard. But it’s also for people who only have a small amount of garage sale items and don’t want to host their own sale; everyone’s welcome to take part.”
There has been tremendous response to these sale events in other Regional Districts, so if you’re looking to be a vendor on sale day, you need to sign up early. Just as the name suggests, you do the selling from the trunk of your car, van or back of your pickup. There’s no charge to be a vendor, but you need to pre-register beforehand.
The deadline to register is Wednesday, September 10th. To register as a vendor, please contact Carmen Fennell, the Waste Reduction Facilitator at 250.833.5936.
If you don’t have items to sell at the Trunk Sale, be sure to come and shop for bargains on the sale day. The Trunk Sale runs from 8 AM to 12 PM, Saturday, September 13th in parking lot at the Salmon Arm Okanagan College campus, 2552 Trans-Canada Highway, located behind the SASCU Recreation Centre.
