Cash in on Oak Bay’s Garagellennium

This year’s neighbourhood garage sale is set for June 8

Is it trash or is it treasure? You decide at Oak Bay’s annual Garagellennium – the ultimate garage sale.

This year’s neighbourhood garage sale is set for June 8 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and registration is now open at oakbaygaragesale.com.

By registering using the online form, your address and whether or not you are donating proceeds to charity will be published in the Oak Bay News listing of Oak Bay garage sale participants. The event, now in its 14th year, was initially started as part of Oak Bay’s centennial celebrations. Each year, between 150 to 200 people register to be a part of the sale and this year organizers hope to see that grow.

All Oak Bay residents and community groups are welcome to participate. Registration ends on June 3. For more information go to oakbaygaragesale@shaw.ca.
