Deals galore at neighbourhood garage sales

Neighbourhoods across town set up to sell a plethora of items on Saturday morning during community-wide garage sales.

Creekside Senior Estate in St. Davids held its annual garage sale and barbecue to raise money for improvements to its trailer park. 

Last year, the community raised $3,000, but Judy Sibley, chair of the Creekside social club, said she hoped it might bring in a little more this year.

“All the infrastructure has been replaced. All the sewers and waterlines are being replaced. Originally, this was just a trailer park but now with the bigger homes coming in we need more (sewage capacity),” Sibley said. The annual garage sale was one way to fund those expenses.

At the same time, across town in Queenston, the bi-annual, community-wide garage sale was in full force. Residents who wanted to participate just set up their items for sale.

Shoppers poured in from all over town, as well as Niagara Falls and St. Catharines, to peruse items and take advantage of the warm weekend weather.

The sale in Queenston takes place every other year and residents keep all the money raised.
