Wildsight is taking on the community yard sale day this year. If you’re interested in it, the updates are happening here (Facebook page) but here are the basics: “The Community Yard Sale is back and set to take place Saturday June 3rd from 9AM to 1PM! 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.”
Speaking of Wildsight, their AGM is happening:
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.

It’s happening again! You too can get your annual fill of garage sales on Saturday, May 23rd and Sunday, 24th. Everyone gets the garage sale map in The Free Press (brilliant) on Thursday and you get 2 days to prepare your route.
It’s a beautiful and overwhelming day.
I missed out on this recent garage sale but I did make a mental note that it’s starting early this year. I’m hoping that the people behind the big Fernie wide spring clean garage sale last may is going to happen again because that was overwhelming but fun. I think it satisfied my garage sale craving for a good year…and it’s been almost a year. Bring it on!
