Hands up, who else skipped spring cleaning? So you’ve got a pile of stuff sitting around and with garage sale season almost over there’s now a very real risk you’re going to be spending the winter penned in by extra sets of dusty dishes, rollerblades that don’t fit, and assorted shelves of stuff you keep meaning to do something about. Any day now. Well, Manyfest is giving you one last chance before the sun is gone to clear some much needed space and help send Aunt Edna’s quilt to a home it’ll be appreciated in a giant community Garage Sale. As Winnipeggers, we all know the power of multi-family garage sales – so imagine one with 75 tables!
There’s nothing better – except maybe Antiques Roadshow – to demonstrate that whole principle of one-person’s-trash-is-another’s-treasure. That vase that you never found a place for? Will look perfect on someone else’s shelf. The books you’ve read 20 times? Brand new to your neighbour. That old purse is someone’s new favourite vintage accessory just waiting to happen! So bring your underappreciated and gently-used items down and take home some money.
There’s a limited number of tables though (75), so sign up early to get a space! It’s happening Sunday, September 11, and it’s totally free to participate. BIZ will even give you a table, chairs and a nice 10’x10’ square of street to show your stuff.
