Line-up for eighth annual edition of fundraiser

Gail Fluskey got in line at 7 a.m. for the 8:30 a.m. opening of the annual garage sale at the Langley Senior Resource Society (LSRS) centre Saturday morning.

She was first in a line-up that stretched from the front entrance all the way around the side of the 18,000 sq. ft. facility at 20605 51B Avenue.

The Langley resident said she was looking for a “very specific” collectible for a relative.

“I decided I better come early,” she said.

The eighth annual community garage sale at the centre featured thousands of gently used and new items for sale, a raffle draw, door prizes, and a BBQ lunch.

It is one of the LSRS’ biggest fundraising events, with all proceeds benefitting programs and services for seniors in the community.

“This garage sale is huge. Our entire building is filled with clothing, jewelry, kitchenware, knickknacks, paintings, toys, tools, electronics, home décor, sporting goods, and more,” LSRS director of recreation Sandy Lucas said.

“This year we will even have a dedicated collectibles section. We have had some beautiful collectible items donated.”
