Saturday, June 20, 2015 will be a great day to cruise for bargains in New Westminster, as both the West End and Glenbrooke North are having their own neighbourhood-wide garage sales.

Neighbourhood garage sales are popular in New West. The oldest is the annual Queens Park Garage Sale in May, sponsored by realtor Dave Vallee, which has run for 20 years. The Quayside Festival and Sale in August, organized by the Quayside Community Board, is entering its ninth year, and it is probably the biggest, drawing up to 10,000 people. Massey-Victory Heights also has an annual sale in early May, organized by the residents association and sponsored by realtor Derrick Thornhill.

The June 20 Glenbrooke North garage sale is hosted by the area resident’s association. The 16th annual sale will be 9am-3pm, rain or shine, and will incorporate a fundraiser for New West’s Monarch Place, a shelter for women and children fleeing violence. Here is a map of participating homes:

The West End doesn’t have an annual garage sale tradition, but this year realtor Matt Brabbin is sponsoring one this year, which will also be 9am-3pm on June 20. Here’s the map of participating homes:

Happy bargain-hunting!
