Do you have stuff in your home that you need to sell?
Perhaps you have some suits or dresses that no longer fit, an older living room set that you've
just had replaced, or a vinyl record collection you've been hanging onto for
years. (Ask your kids if they even know what a record is?)
If a traditional garage sale is not an option for you, there are other ways to
sell those items.
For example, you could rent a stall for the weekend at a local flea market.
Steveston Community Center has an annual "Car Boot(trunk) Sale"
This year its on Sunday, August 19th ($13/Stall)
This is relatively inexpensive and can be a fun activity for the whole family.
Another option is to advertise in your local community newspaper.
Advertising rates in local publications are often much lower than in major
You can also advertise on the internet. There are several popular sites,
such as Craigslist.com and eBayClassifieds.com (Kijiji.com in Canada)
where you can advertise for free!
