If you didn’t walk something to the curb during the last giveaway weekend because you thought it might be worth something, it’s time to try selling it.

The Bourkevale Community Centre might just be the place to do it, as it holds its annual garage sale on Sat., May 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 100 Ferry Rd.

Club president Gary Kristiansen said people hawking their wares can buy a table for $10 and keep all the profit from their sales.

"We have the tables, it’s just a matter of getting them set up . . . and we can also open up our skate room as well, and we can put people on the stage," Kristiansen said, when asked if the centre would be able to accommodate a large influx of vendors.

The sale is timed in co-ordination with community groups holding yard sales elsewhere in the community, Kristiansen said, which allows buyers to visit multiple sales within the area, and also provides a dry place for the other sales to escape to if it rains.

Money raised by the garage sale will go towards equipment for the centre’s recreational soccer program.

The sale has been an annual event for about a dozen years, Kristiansen said, and typically only rents out about a dozen tables.

"A lot of the time the community club is not about making money," he said.

Anyone interested in renting a table at the sale is asked to call Joan at 204-888-8548.
