Looking for a bargain? Look no further than the curbs of Winnipeg. This weekend is the spring giveaway, when residents leave their unwanted but usable items on the boulevard. Clothes, CDs, books, toys, furniture, kitchen and garden tools – you name it, it’s there for the taking.
The City of Winnipeg advises treasure hunters to take only what’s at the curb or marked "free" and for residents to remove any items not taken by dusk Sunday. Residents should keep anything they don’t want taken well away from the curb. Bargain hunters cruising the curb are asked to watch for children, obey traffic laws and respect people’s property by not walking on lawns or parking in driveways.
The next Giveaway Weekend will be Sept. 8-9.
