Tomorrow’s the big day! It’s finally arrived…and I won’t even be here to enjoy it.
The details are online and it sounds like there’s a lot to see and do. Here’s the map but I would check out the Yard Sale Event Page for last minute additional addresses.
Fernie Child Care Society and Wildsight Elk Valley have teamed up to have a TOY garage sale at Max Turyk School from 8-12.
Fernie Hospice Bake Sale at 891 2nd Avenue
The Arts Station will be participating in this year’s Community Yard Sale. We will be selling old canvases, costumes, fabrics and whatever else we find in our basement! If you have any creative projects coming up, this could be your chance to pick up what you need to get the ball rolling. All proceeds to the Arts Station.
Wildsight Elk Valley will also host a “White Elephant” yard sale at their office at 891 Second Avenue in Fernie, where citizens who are inspired to declutter but don’t have the time to sell their goods can donate them to the Wildsight Elk Valley branch Yard Sale.
Some information about the best day of the year:
“The Community Yard Sale is back and set to take place Saturday June 2nd from 8AM to 12PM! All individuals, families, organizations and businesses in Fernie are encouraged to take part. The registration fee is $20.00, and all funds raised will go towards Wildsight Elk Valley Projects.
NEW THIS YEAR! For $10 you can join in the Community Sale located across the road from the Wildsight Elk Valley office (891 2nd Ave). This is perfect for those who don’t want to host a sale, have no space to host a sale or just have a few items to sell. Feel free to contact us for more info!
Wildsight Elk Valley will also host a “White Elephant” yard sale at their office at 891 Second Avenue in Fernie, where citizens who are inspired to declutter but don’t have the time to sell their goods can donate them to the Wildsight Yard Sale.
Community members can register to be a part of the Wildsight Community Yard Sale by visiting wildsight.ca/yardsale or look for the registration form in the Fernie Free Press in May, 2018 editions.
As usual, the $20.00 registration fee includes several benefits including a Community Yard Sale sign, an advertisement of your Community Yard Sale location on Wildsight’s exclusive Community Yard Sale map which will be published in The Fernie Free Press on May 31st, 2018, and the extensive event promotion. Registration to be on the map ends May 24th, 2018.
You can of course register after this date but addresses will only appear online and on social media and not in the Free Press map.
You can contact the organizers via email firstname.lastname@example.org, drop by the Wildsight office at 891 2nd Ave or call for inquiries (250) 423- 3322.”
Before the days of the Community Garage Sale in May, Fernie was buzzing with garage sales every weekend and now I barely hear of any. Is it just me or are there not very many garage sales this summer?
Has the community garage sale ruined summer yard sales?
This could be all in my head because I just found this on ourfernie.com…but that’s just one.
