The Agassiz United Church annual garage sale takes place this Saturday from 8-2 p.m.

Agassiz United Church 33rd Annual Garage Sale – a Community Event

A popular annual event is coming up this Saturday. Get there early for the best selection!

Saturday, September the 12 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. marks the 33rd Annual Agassiz United Church Garage Sale. The Sale has grown into a much anticipated community event, as friends and neighbours gather to hunt for treasures and bargains. Many people in the community donate “gently used” items such as furniture, housewares, clothing, books, tools, toys, collectibles, antiques and sports equipment as well as many other sought after articles.

The Annual Garage Sale relies on a small army of volunteers who work the whole week prior to the sale to sort, clean and price items. The United Church Women’s group (UCW) provides a sumptuous homemade baking table in conjunction with the Garage Sale. Others make traditional Russian borscht, which is featured at the lunch counter along with bunwiches, the borscht is also sold by the quart and usually sells out quickly.

Visitors from all over the Valley and Metro Vancouver, as well as local residents, browse the garage sale to find their winter reading material, unearth hidden treasures, seek out furniture and discover many other household necessities along with having a great lunch and visiting with friends.

It is a bargain hunter’s delight! Out of print books; discontinued pieces of Royal Albert china;  collectible toys; golf clubs; great clothing are some of the many cherished objects carted off home. This year there is a huge selection of buttons – lots of old buttons and decorative buttons for all the sewers and crafters. Some antique furniture will be featured this year along with some extremely collectible Medalta crocks.

Proceeds realized from the sale are apportioned between the local Community Services, the Church’s Mission & Services Fund and General Fund. If you wish to donate items to the annual Garage Sale, the committee will arrange to have them picked up the week of Sept. 7-11 or you can drop smaller items off at the Agassiz United Church, 6860 Lougheed Hwy., during that same week. Unfortunately we can no longer accept donations of old TVs, computers, electronics or mattresses.

For more information call: Elaine Olson 604-796-9654, Marie Edmondson 604-796-9833, Bev Kennedy 604-796-2459.
