With the weather starting to warm, another season of one of Brandon’s favourite pastimes is on our doorstep.
The United Way of Brandon and District this weekend will be holding what amounts to a kickoff to the 2019 garage sale season with the Spring edition of Brandon’s Largest Garage Sale on Saturday. As of Wednesday more than 160 tables had signed on to be setup across the Manitoba Room and UCT Pavillion at the Keystone Centre between 9am and 3pm.
Cost to enter is $2 with children 12 and under being free. All proceeds benefit the 2019 Brandon United Way Campaign.
The classifieds on this very website have served as a hot spot for folks putting on traditional garage sales to get the word out, something we’ve already started to see a small handful of early postings on in recent weeks. Generally a higher volume of those sales starts to take place with a further warmup in weather toward the end of April, peaking somewhat in May and holding fairly steady throughout the summer months.
