The highly successful Fernie Spring Clean  – Community Garage Sale is returning in 2015 and it is spreading throughout the Elk Valley.

You may be thinking about clearing out after the festive season, but don’t give too much away. Try and create a little corner at home or in the garage to start collecting items you no longer need and that others might wish to buy. You will want to keep them to be able to take part in the 2015 Elk Valley Spring Clean.

After the amazingly successful 2014 Fernie event, the organizers, East Kootenay Brain Injuries Association, are very excited to let you know that the 2015 event will take place over a whole weekend.  On Saturday, May 23 the communities of Elkford and Sparwood will host the first part of the community event.  On Sunday, May 24, Fernie will have their second annual event.

Last year saw over 80 garage sales in Fernie, including many great discounts in the retail stores, and some charities doing joint sales and raising wonderful funds for their particular cause.

Registration won’t start until April, but we want all the residents of the Elk Valley (buyers and sellers) to save the date to ensure they can be part of this exciting event.  If you want to keep in touch, you can follow our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Ferniespringclean
