Garage Sale 2009 a Huge Success

Our garage sale on June 6th was a huge success again this year. The weather cooperated and the participation was great. Thank you to everyone who joined in this year! I hope your efforts were profitable and that you enjoyed your day.

The Salvation Army truck arrived on Pepler Avenue at 1:30 pm on Saturday and all of you were generous enough to donate your leftovers to them. The truck left full, which amounts to about 4 tons of items. The Salvation Army was very pleased with the contribution and look forward to continuing on with us each year that we have our sale.

Yasmin Burt, on Pepler, sold baked goods and hotdogs and raised over $800 for Wellspring. Congratulations Yasmin and team!

If any of you have stories or items you would like to ad to the blog, we look forward to hearing from you.

Where and When

Yesterday, I received an email from a shopper for our sale wondering where our sale actually was in Toronto. The blog was originally designed for the participants and not a thought was given to all the shoppers out there. After all, this is a blog, wide open to everyone. So, for all you bargain hunters, our sale location is from Broadview Avenue to Donlands Avenue, north and south of O'Connor Drive in Toronto's East York. There is a total of thirteen streets involved. The sale is Saturday, June 4th this year and runs from 8am to 2pm. We look forward to seeing you!
