Thinking about hosting a garage sale? Kick your plans into high gear by participating in Niagara College’s first Trunk Sale.
Spaces are now available for vendors (from the college community and local residents alike) who wish to sell their items at the College’s Trunk Sale, which will be held at the Welland Campus on September 13 (noon to 3 p.m.) during Orientation Week. Spaces are limited and are available on first-come, first-served basis.
The Trunk Sale will be a free, family-friendly outdoor event to be held rain or shine. In addition to the opportunity for guests to pick up some new treasures – like visiting several garage sales in one location – the event will include activities such as face painting, bouncy castles, an inflatable maze; and a barbecue for guests to enjoy.
Those who wish to sell items – such as reusable clothes, toys, books or furniture – must pay to reserve a parking spot where they will conduct their sales, in advance of the event, giving them a chance to cash in from selling their goods while supporting a worthy cause.
The Trunk Sale is a new addition to the College’s 2015 United Way Campaign. While those who sell items at the event keep all the money raised from their sales, funds raised by the reservation of parking spots where each participant’s items will be sold ($25 for a single spot or $40 for a double) will be donated to the United Way of South Niagara.
Individuals interested in selling items at the event must purchase/reserve parking spots before September 11. Those who reserve spots will be assigned a numbered parking space where they may sell their reusable items at the event. The items must be displayed within the perimeter of the parking spots. Vendors may also choose to sell items from their trunk/car (within the reserved spot) or utilize the entire space for their items. Vendors must bring their own supply of bills and coins for change, as well as their own equipment (tables, chairs, racks, tarps, money boxes, etc).
