This Saturday, Sept. 23, you could be setting up your table – or opening your trunk – and selling your wares in Nipissing Township’s Heritage Park.
The park is located at 14 Blake Street, Nipissing Village, just one street behind the Museum.
A trunk sale is essentially a yard sale, and it looks like the weather will cooperate with the forecasted sunny skies and temperature of 22C. And for $10 and a donation to the food bank, you can set up shop. The 10'x10' area is available to everyone who pre-registers and pays their fee. After all, you never know who wants a piece of the junk in your trunk.
Visit Kristin at the Township Office at 45 Beatty Street or send her an email at [email protected] to secure your spot.
Crafters, birdhouse makers, honey harvesters, and all types of ware sellers are welcome. But wait, you’re not a crafty type? No jams or syrup to sell? Well, here’s the beauty of the trunk sale. You can buy a spot and sell whatever items you have lying about the place.
Your uncle’s ball cap collection that’s been boxed for three years? Trunk sale. The closet full of clothes that you’ve given up on fitting into again? Trunk sale. That creepy woman’s leg lamp your Gram left to you? You know it – trunk sale.
It’s the community yard sale you’ve been waiting for. So far, 11 vendors have signed up for spots, but the park can handle more than that. So don’t be shy. Give Kristen a call and get those closets cleaned.
Let it be known that the $10 and can of soup donation fee is only good for the land you’ll be setting up on for the day. You’ll have to bring your own tables, racks, or whatever it is you choose to display your goods on.
Everyone is welcome to stop by to peruse the wares. It’s free, and the event takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and vendors can set up at 8 a.m. Browsers are also asked to consider bringing a donation for the Powassan and Callander Food Banks.
