Garagellenium XVII ready to draw crowds

Community-wide garage sale Saturday, June 11 beginning at 9 a.m.

Early birds aren’t welcome but everyone else is this weekend to Garagellenium XVII in Oak Bay.

“Please don’t go to people’s houses the day prior, just respect the time the sales start,” said organizer Cassie Kangas. “People can choose to start earlier … but if people don’t have their stuff out please don’t go to their house, just go back and check later.”

The community-wide garage sale is Saturday, June 11 beginning at 9 a.m.

“I’m a little worried about the weather but it usually doesn’t dampen too many people’s spirits,” Kangas said.

“We’ve had a phenomenal amount of people emailing, registering or even just saying they’re excited about seeing it in the community and we’ve got lots of people coming from other places to do some shopping. It’s just a great fun day.”

Sellers are welcome to do what they like with their cash, Kangas said, adding many choose to donate the proceeds.

“I think it’s really nice that we have, as we do every year, really good community support, so a wide variety of charities will be getting funds from people’s sales,” Kangas said.
