Somebody here in Squamish had a genius idea last year. They created an event called the “Re-Use It Fair“. It’s an opportunity for people to take their unwanted (but perfectly useful) items to a central location, cost-free, and potentially swap them (or not) for other items they could actually use.
(You know, kinda like when you go to the dump to drop off an old sandbox, and you end up coming back with a bicycle that’s missing a pedal….)
Let’s face it, it’s happened to all of us at somepoint.
So, in that spirit, be sure to head to the Brennan Park Leisure Centre on Saturday April 28th, from 9 am to 3 pm to check out the goods, and to release that perfectly fine wafflemaker that Cousin Ed bought you for your birthday 5 years ago. You know, the one you used just that once before you realized that you’re definitely a just-cereal-for-breakfast kinda person….drag it out from the cupboard under your sink- where it’s been stressing you out each time you see it, reminding you of all the fantastic brunches you never get around to hosting. Because there is a darn good chance that it will find a good home with a waffle-crazed family, and you can perhaps even pick up a brand new ukelele to release your inner hula-dreaming musician.
The past two swaps have been runaway successes. Incredible turnouts, and fantastic offerings including furniture, appliances, toys, bikes, electronics, clothing, sporting goods and more. And you’re encouraged to take away others’ items you want for FREE.
