The Golden Triangle Garage Sale is almost here! As you travel through the neighbourhood, you can see people hauling things out of the garage and preparing for the big sale. Banners and signs are being erected to make sure that everyone knows that the sale is happening this year.

Now, before we go any further, we should talk about the weather. The Weather network is saying that Saturday will be 26 degrees feeling like 31 and there is a chance of thundershowers. Accuweather reports that the temperature will be 29 degrees and that there will be a COUPLE of showers and thunderstorms. My take on all this is that we are going to have a wonderful day and then, around 3 or 4 pm we will experience some thundershowers. That would be quite nice so that we can all get cooled down after such a hot day and successful garage sale. I will post daily from now until sale time to keep everyone up to date with how things are looking.
There are a few people to look for during garage sale!
Frank at 56 Warland usually grows herb and vegetable plants from seed. I have tasted crop from his plants and it has been very tasty. Prices are awesome!
Yasmin at 33 Pepler will be having a huge bake sale. She usually has a BBQ and sells soft drinks as well. ALL of the proceeds go to Wellspring. Yasmin really knows how to bake!
Michael, owner of the Leslieville Cheese Market on Donlands will be at 60 Pepler Avenue giving out samples of his nationally recognized grilled cheese sandwiches. Can hardly wait to try one out!
And, as usual, Dennis and the Salvation Army Truck will be at 60 Pepler Avenue from 1 to 4pm on Saturday to help take care of the leftovers. This will be the 9th year running that Dennis and the Salvation Army have supported our event. Thank you Salvation Army!
If anyone knows of other special spots to look for during garage sale, let me know and I will be happy to post them on the blog.
