Despite the spitting rain and cold weather, there was a fantastic turnout to our first annual community Garage Sale. Fifteen households opened their garage doors to offer some great deals. After cruising around the block scoping deals for myself, I found out that Colin was parting with his beloved comic book collection (which he later boasted sold for $400 so he could buy a new iPhone).
SBG residents gathered together at the end of the sale to contribute to the Canadian Diabetes Association with donations of unsold-good condition household items. What a great community! There were some other fantastic deals to be had, and through the inclement weather each resident was pleased with the results. Thanks to Tracy for organizing this event…I am looking forward to next year!
