Nanaimo Recycles Trunk Sale
Stop by VIU's Parking Lot A from 9 am to 2 pm on Saturday, August 26 for the second and final Trunk Sale of the season!
The sale consists of
vendors selling their unwanted items from the trunk of their car to bargain
hunters. This free reuse event aims to give unwanted household items a longer
lease on life and to reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill.
This sale is intended to promote reuse and recycling
of unwanted “garage sale” type items. No retail-type booths or sale of new
items will be permitted. The only new items permitted for sale are items made
from recycled materials.
This year we will be holding TWO Trunk Sale Events. The first event
will be on June 24, 2023 at
Club Centre from 9:00am -
2:00pm. The second event will be held on August 26, 2023 at the Vancouver Island University in Lot A from 9:00am - 2:00pm.
It is free entry for sellers by advance
registration. 150 vendor spots are available on a first-come, first-served
basis. Sellers can reserve a space by sending an email to
email@example.com with the subject line: 2023 Trunk Sale Registration. Deadline for applications is 3:00pm the Friday before the sale (June 23 and August 25).
Buyers be sure to bring your reusable bags!
