Sale a big job

The Qualicum Beach Museum is starting to gear up for their annual Trinkets and Treasures garage and plant sale.

The Qualicum Beach Museum is starting to gear up for their annual Trinkets and Treasures garage and plant sale, but they need a few more hands on deck to make it happen.

The event, a major fundraiser for the museum, takes place on Saturday, May 11 from 9 a.m.-noon.

Museum staff are asking members of the Qualicum Beach Historical Society to bring their donations to the museum as early as possible in order that the items may be sorted and priced. Donations will be accepted at the museum any Tuesday or Thursday afternoon from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Starting on May 1-3 the museum will be accepting items from 10 a.m. until noon and every morning from May 6 to 10.

Anyone with heavy items such as furniture please call 250-752-7339 or 250-752-1052, and the historical society will arrange to have someone pick it up. All items must be clean and in good condition. Plants should be brought in early on the day of the sale, if possible. The sale will not include  clothing, computer items, old telephones, or golf bags this year.

It’s a big job and the society is looking for volunteers to help sort and re-box items on Thursday, May 9 and Friday, May 10 in preparation for the Saturday sale. They will also need volunteers on the morning of the sale to help set up tables and tents, put the items out and oversee the tables. For more information, call Angela Nielsen at 250-752-7339 or Betty McNeil at 250-752-1052.
