Giant garagellennium sale seeks sellers

All Oak Bay residents, merchants, and community groups are invited to register online before May 27 to take part in the garage sale.

Your stuff, your place, your profit. That’s the concept of Oak Bay’s annual ultimate community garage sale, Garagellennium.

All Oak Bay residents, merchants, and community groups are invited to register online before May 27 to take part in the garage sale.

“People in this town love their garage sales,” volunteer organizer, Graham Lamb said. “It’s the lure of finding some treasure that someone else thinks is trash.”

The event, now in its 13th 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, Lamb said.

“It’s a way to actually meet people,” Lamb said. “And build awareness of recycling.”

To participate, visit oakbaygaragesale.com before May 27. Neighbours interested in having group sales can register by submitting a single address.

Participants are also encouraged to donate proceeds to charity.

Garagellennium takes place June 9, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Addresses of participants will be listed in the Oak Bay News closer to the date.
