MVHRA Street Capper

 

Annual Garage Sale

The Massey Victory Heights Residents Association hold an Annual Garage Sale the first Saturday in May rain or shine. Your annual association fee [$10.00] will include your address for the Garage Sale advertising if you wish to participate. The MVHRA supplies each participant copies of a participants list all the addresses participating in the event. These are to be handed at your individual Garage sale to those attending so they are aware of the location of families involved. You will also receive an official participants sign to be posted to identify your sale as a registered participant.

Derrick Thornhill supplies the advertising for this event in the way of large billboard type signage throughout the neighbourhood. Without his help our Annual Garage Sale would not be as successful.

Along with Derrick's signage the MVHRA also posts advertising in the local City Pages; Vancouver Sun and Province Newspapers; popular Social Media sites as well as the City Billboard Sign in Queen's Park.

First Annual Garage Sale 2006
In May the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association hosted its First Annual Garage Sale with 20 residents taking part. Despite the weather and the car accident at Cumberland and East 8th Avenue, which blocked off the intersection in three directions for quite some time, the event was a success.

Second Annual Garage Sale 2007
The Second Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association had 28 residents participating. This year the weather was a bit more cooperative which brought out many bargain seekers. Once again the event was a resounding success. List of 2007 participants

Third Annual Garage Sale 2008
The Third Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association had 25 residents participating. This year the weather was a bit less cooperative with rain lasting most of the morning and into early afternoon. This did not stop the bargain seekers as streets were jammed with cars. Another successful year was had by all. List of 2008 participants

Fourth Annual Garage Sale 2009
The Fourth Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association was held Saturday May 2nd, 2009 with 25 participants. This year the weather was perfect, with the rain holding out until 3:15. Most streets and lane ways were in grid lock, with the number of cars lining the streets. Another astounding successful Garage Sale. List of 2009 participants

Fifth Annual Garage Sale 2010
The Fifth Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association was held Saturday May 1st, 2010 with 20 households participating. Although the weather was a bit cool, at least the rain held out for the day and the sun showed its face as we ended the day. From all accounts it appears everyone had a successful day. Once again the neighbourhood was full of bargain seekers. List of 2010 participants

Sixth Annual Garage Sale 2011
The Sixth Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association was held Saturday May 7th, 2011 with 20 households participating. We were not as fortunate this year with the weather as the rain pelted down for most of the day and did not let up until early afternoon. This did not appear to affect the crowds of bargain seekers as they were heavier than previous years, as evidenced by the traffic jambs in lane ways and streets in the area. List of 2011 participants

Seventh Annual Garage Sale 2012
The Seventh Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association was held Saturday May 5th, 2012 with 20 households participating. The day started out on the wet side but did not hold back the crowds. By mid morning the rain gave way to overcast skies then sunshine by noon. Another busy year with streets and lane ways filled with parked cars and pedestrians. List of 2012 participants

Eighth Annual Garage Sale 2013
The Eighth Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association was held Saturday May 4th, 2013 with 19 households participating. Mother nature was cooperative with us this year and we experience a beautiful sunny warm day. By all accounts another successful sale, with accounts of congested lanes being experienced throughout the day. List of 2013 participants

Ninth Annual Garage Sale 2014
The Ninth Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association was held Saturday May 3rd, 2014 with 21 households participating. It was over cast for most of the day, with periods of rain her and there throughout the event. This did not stop the crowds from seeking out those elusive bargains. There were reports of traffic jams in some areas as pictured. Another successful event for everyone. List of 2014 participants

Tenth Annual Garage Sale 2015
The Tenth Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association was held Saturday May 2nd 2015 with 15 registered households participating. This year mother nature coioperated and provide us with a sunny day.

List of 2015 participants

Eleventh Annual Garage Sale 2016
The Eleventh Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association was held Saturday May 7 2016 with 23 registered households participating. This year we had to compete with the Queen's Park Garage Sale; contend with the reduced lanes on the Pattullo Bridge, which resulted in less traffic in the area; and of course the sunny hot [28 degrees] weather.  None of these affected the crowds of bargain hunters and most participants reported steady traffic throughout the day.  The popcorn register this year was 2 kg of kernels.  It appears to have been another successful event. List of 2016 participants

Twelfth Annual Garage Sale 2017
The Twelfth Annual Garage Sale of the Massey Victory Heights Residents Association was held Saturday May 6 2016 with 13 registered households participating. It was reported there was a steady flow of customers starting at 7:00 am in some locations. The weather co-operated with us this year. List of 2017 participants
