Riverview Neighbourhood Garage Sales 2023
Sat., June 3, 9 am to 3 pm
Help wanted June 1, 2 & 3
Riverview Garage Sales are back again this June to support our beloved Riverview Community Centre, which seems to be adding improvements every year, thanks to our excellent staff and strong community support.
By donating used, but useable goods to the sale, you have an opportunity to create more space and less clutter in your home, as well as support the RVCC. By assisting with the sale, you can connect again with your neighbours in Riverview.
There are 4 ways you can help:
1. Hold a yard or garage sale at your own home on June 3, and donate 10% of sales to RVCC. We will provide you with a lawn sign and balloons, and do extensive multi-media advertising to bring in shoppers.
2. Donate saleable goods to RVCC and they will be sold there on June 3 (all proceeds to RVCC). You may drop off sale goods at the community centre to the main floor storage room Mon. to Fri., 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sat. & Sun. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or behind the bicycle rack near the front doors, if they are locked.
Sorry, but we cannot accept magazines, encyclopedias or textbooks, TVs, computers, printers, tires, child car seats, stuffed animals, mattresses, sofas, golf clubs, skis, large appliances or broken or musty items, as these items do not sell at a garage sale.
Also not accepting clothing, boots or shoes at this time.
Final day to donate goods is Thursday, June 1, to 9 p.m.
3. Volunteer to assist at the RVCC sale on June 1, 2 and/or 3. We especially need assistance setting up on Thursday, June 1, starting at 9 a.m., and packing up on Saturday at 3 p.m. after the sale. After the pack-up, we need to break down boxes, recycle, and clean the main hall (about 5 p.m.).
4. Visit your neighbourhood sales on June 3 for fabulous bargains not available at any shopping mall. We had a very successful sale last year, and this year promises to be the same. Come see for yourself why Winnipeg is known as “The Garage Sale Capital of Canada!”
