Giant Garage Sale top of the season’s circuit


The Giant Garage Sale at Myrtle Philip elementary school heralds the beginnings of spring and the social garage sale season.

This year the annual event gets underway on Saturday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the school gym, and all proceeds from table rentals and admission will go toward raising funds for the school via the parent advisory council.

More than 50 tables are available for rent to individuals or groups to sell clothes, books, sports equipment, toys and household items.

The cost to reserve a table is $30 and information packages are available at the school office Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

The Giant Garage Sale will also feature a bake sale and concession. Admission will be a loonie with children under 12 free.

The Myrtle Philip PAC suggests this is a great time to turn unwanted possessions into cash while at the same time supporting the elementary school students.
