19 May

If you are on the hunt for some great finds, you may wish to check out the Tugboat Landing Multi-Family Garage Sale happening Saturday, May 28th in SE Vancouver. The garage sale happens at 2010 East Kent Avenue (at Victoria Drive) just a block below Marine Drive. This is an indoor event which means it goes ahead rain or shine from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. If you aren’t familiar with the area, it is located on a public walkway and cycle path just steps away from Gladstone Park and less than a mile West of the new River District development.

At the Tugboat Landing Large Multi-Family Garage Sale you can expect to find a variety of items including vintage clothing and household items from Vintage East Van and The General Vintage. You will also find a large selection of items from local residents including new clothing, home décor, gardening supplies, art work, books, shoes, ceramics and much more. We understand at last count 15 vendors will be on hand. There will also be some refreshments and snacks will be available by donation.

Free street parking is available in the area. For those travelling by bus, the Victoria 20 will get you within 2 blocks of the venue and the 100 bus that travels East and West along Marine between 22nd St Station and the Marpole Loop stops at Victoria and Marine Drive, 1 block from the venue. Stop by, you never know what you might find.
