2012 Photographs of the Golden Triangle Garage Sale

The Golden Triangle was an enormous success this year! Even thought the weather kept everyone on their toes, other than a short shower, the rest of the sale remained dry. I did notice a few winter coats on as I went around to visit with people. Overall, it all worked out.

The crowds were great and the comments were all very favourable. the sale was posted on Kijiji and that posting got 757 visits. the Blog has had 571 views over the last month. There were 108 views on Friday and 143 views Saturday. These are fantastic numbers! The garage sale email list is up to 120 people. If you want to be on the list, just send Lynn an email at This list is only used for garage sale and community communication.

Throughout the day, there were some wonderful things that happened and some great stories that need to be told. I will continue to post on this blog as there are community stories that you might be interested in. If you know of any stories or would like to comment on the sale or the Blog, please do so. It would be great to keep it going through the year. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Blog. This is your blog.

A special THANK YOU to our street captains, Karen Mackie, Glenna Fong and Sheila Brazys. To Joe Bortolussi for picking up the signs, banners and lawn signs after the sale which he does every year. It is greatly appreciated. To John and Sheila Brazys who are our tireless extra sets of hands, eyes and ears on the day of the sale. To The Salvation Army for making the truck available to us for the sale and providing Dennis, the wonderful driver and helper who has been with us for 8 years. To all the Golden Triangle participants and shoppers without which, the sale would not be a success. To my husband, Peter Carr who works every bit as hard as I do every year to make our sale a success.


Happy Birthday wishes to Karen Mackie and Bob Bishop who both enjoyed their birthdays Saturday participating in garage sale.
