It’s the season once again, as garage sales are starting to pop up in communities throughout Lethbridge County, selling wares and wonders for all ages. Picture Butte’s Annual Community Garage Sale is being held this Saturday.
Residents are encouraged to host garage sales from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We’re hopeful there will be lots of garage sales at homes around town,” noted Patrick Lyster, the town’s director of corporate services.
According to Lyster, Leanne de Kok has been the main push for the Community Garage Sale.
“We just really encourage everybody to all do it on one day,” added de Kok.
Also, the Community Centre will be open for vendors to set up shop.
“People from out of town that have garage sale items they’d like to sell are welcome to book a table there, as well as home businesses. The only thing with that is we’re limiting one vendor per company,” she said.
For those interested in booking a table at the Community Centre for the Community Garage Sale for $15 can text de Kok at 403-317-5849.
“There’s even people that will do, like there kids will have a lemonade stand or they’ll sell freezies for a buck if it’s warm or whatever,” she said, adding many types of vendors are encouraged to take part in the event.
