Sat., May 28, 9 am to 3 pm
With a difficult winter finally behind us, we are all looking forward to warm-weather activities. In the process of spring cleaning your home, please keep in mind the upcoming Riverview Garage Sales when you come across usable items in working order that you no longer want. This could be an opportunity to create more space and less clutter in your home, as well as a great way to support our popular Riverview Community Centre (RVCC).
There are 4 ways you can help:
1. Hold a yard or garage sale at your own home on May 28, 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 shoppers to our neighbourhood.
2. Donate saleable goods to RVCC and they will be sold there on May 28 (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 text books, 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.
3. Volunteer to assist at the RVCC sale on May 28 and/or during Thursday or Frday. the week prior, for a few hours of pricing, display, setting up or carrying boxes. ( Face masks must be worn.) We also require the assistance of several people at the end of the sale at 3 p.m. on May 28 to pack up the unsold goods and clean up.
4. Visit your neighbourhood sales on May 28 for fabulous bargains not available at any shopping mall. (Face masks must be worn.) 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!”
Mark your calendar for Saturday May 28 and please plan to participate in this pan-community event. For info or to volunteer, contact the Garage Sale Coordinators:
