Scroll down for a heads up on changes for next year.
Registration for sellers begins on Wednesday, April 10 and ends on Wednesday, May 1. As registration progresses over this three week period an online printable map will be populated to provide shoppers with the addresses of those participating in the sale.
A printed version of the Garage Sale map will be available at the coffee shop in the village centre.
Last year 142 homes participated in the event for an estimated 3000 shoppers over the 5 hour period.
For sellers, please go to the Kettle Valley Garage Sale website for more information on how and where to register.
For shoppers, the web site will provide valuable information on Kettle Valley’s location, public transit, where to shop, have a bite to eat and where to find the washrooms.
Heads up for next year
The good news is, no more registration fee.
However, this year (2019) will be my last in organizing the Kettle Valley Neighbourhood Garage Sale.
It is a decision that I have been considering for the last couple of years, and with the marking of my 75th birthday last December (2018) I realized, finally after 20 years, it’s time for me to let it go.
Next year (2020) the Garage Sale will continue as usual on the first Saturday in May, but only as an announcement on our Facebook page and Garage Sale website. The maps, local signage and posters will no longer be part of the event.
