Garagellennium! Saturday, June 12th

Every year ’round this time, Vancouver Island residents are oozing with anticipation. It’s almost Garagellennium. There’s an inescapable fervor in the air because in a few day’s time (Saturday, June 12th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm to be precise) over 140 houses in the Oak Bay area will open their garages for everyone to peruse like chubby kids in a candy shop. Naturally, the team will be there with free stuff for you and your kids. After all, it’s no secret that the crew behind one of Canada’s largest buying and selling platforms are also amongst the most notorious of pack-rats. Here’s what you have to look forward to:

  • Free Cookies and Juiceset up in several locations around Oak Bay
  • Free professional face painting and balloon animals throughout Oak Bay
  • Free swag (that’s “Stuff We All Get”)like the worth-their-weight-in-goldUsedVictoria reusable shopping bags
  • Speakers Corner, an excuse for you to look fabulous on the Facebook page. We’ll be filming the event and asking you for your best, funniest or most ridiculous experience using one of our sites… you could win the coveted “Best Funniest UsedVic Video” prize and have full bragging rights!!

We’ll also be accepting donations for the Recycling Council of BC, an organization with the valiant goal of promoting zero-waste principles through information services and research. Print off the map below and or Click Here to print a map and look for us in the heat of the action!
