The Great Glebe Garage Sale 

Saturday May 24th, 2014
9:00am - 3:00 pm

Rain or shine, it’s definitely an “early bird gets the worm” mentality for The Great Glebe Garage Sale Ottawa’s favourite garage sale! Since 1986 this community garage sale has become Ottawa’s worst kept secret as thousands of bargain hunters from all over town converge in the trendy Glebe neighbourhood to find great deals, hidden gems, and enjoy the festival-like atmosphere. The Glebe Community Association also encourages vendors to give a portion of their proceeds to the Ottawa Food Bank, so not only can you find some great bargains, but you can help the community as well!

Planning to check out The Great Glebe Garage Sale this year? Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

-          -   Go early! Large crowds are expected every year, so if you are looking for good deals plan to arrive early in the morning

-          -   Use public transit. There is very limited parking in the Glebe area, and combined with the high number of pedestrians, parking is almost impossible. It is recommended to walk, bike, or take the bus (OC Transpo routes 1 or 7).

-          -   Go green! Bring reusable bags for transporting your new treasures. Also, check out The Great Glebe GREEN Garage Sale at 680 & 690 Bank Street, hosted by Ecology Ottawa.

-           -  Be prepared for plenty of walking. Wear comfortable shoes, and bring lots of water and sunscreen to make sure you have an enjoyable day.

-       -  Bring plenty of cash. Not only will you be able to purchase your great finds before they are gone, but you will also be supporting a good cause. Donations can also be made directly at the Ottawa Food Bank website.
