MHBPNA Garage Sale 2017 Update!

We hope everyone had a great time at the Garage Sale last weekend. I talked with a couple of people who said they made $200 and I spent over $50 which was way more than I thought I would. But the bargains kept on coming!

MHBPNA occupies a large area so not everyone received the volume of customers they may have expected but I rode my bike around and met many bargain hunters with their purchases.

For the record, I'm not a "Garage sale kind of guy" because we already have too much stuff in the house. However, I thought I'd share some of the great deals we uncovered that were too good to walk away from.

The wine glass was only 25 cents. There were two but I just bought one because it is always nice to have a spare in case one breaks. My wife loved it so much, we went back for its twin.







Here is a great plant stand. The person selling it asked the outrageous price of $5! But we talked him down to $2 (it was the end of the sale and he was packing up....this always helps)




These two awesome paintings were free because the people had put them out on the curb with the rest of their "unsold" bounty. They work really well in our newly renovated basement!




This artist's model was only $5 and can placed in a variety of poses.




Finally, the most expensive item was this Casio keyboard for $20! It has drums, arpeggio accompaniment patterns and a variety of sounds. Tons of fun for the price.




We hope you had fun with the sale. MHBPNA organized it and created the Google Map and form because many people asked us. We can do it again next year, or the year after depending on demand.

PARTS public event, Thursday, 6:30 pm - 9 pm, Victoria Park Pavillion

PARTS (Planning Around Rapid Transit Stations): Midtown and Rockway

This is the 3rd and final Public Information Centre (PIC) to discuss planning around the Midtown and Rockway ION station areas.

Stakeholders and the public are invited to view the preferred land use options and supporting technical analysis including stormwater and sanitary sewer capacity modeling for the two station areas. 

---

With ION rapid transit coming to the region, the city’s planning division has under taken a project - Planning Around Rapid Transit Stations (PARTS) - to develop station area plans that will provide direction for future development and stability within station study areas. There are 12 light rail stops in Kitchener that have been grouped into six station areas. PARTS will also develop recommendations for capital projects to ensure that these areas are developed in a way that is transit supportive and adds value to our community.

For more information visit www.kitchener.ca/PARTS

MHBP Garage Sale 2017



Back by popular demand, MHBPNA is sponsoring a Garage Sale this year on Saturday, May 27, 2017.

We had a great time in 2015 and plan to repeat it this year!

If you wish to participate please fill out our FORM which is HERE.

You can see the Garage Sale locations grow. The MAP is HERE.

Over the next month we will build a Google Map to display all the locations so everyone can plan their adventures in bargain hunting. Click on the link above to view the folks who have already signed up!

This is an excellent opportunity to exchange those golf clubs you never use and your Frank Sinatra records for some cash! Think of the possibilities.

And that is not all! May 27 is also the day of the Hohner Ave Porch Party and it is always a lot of fun. So you can have a great time at the Garage Sale (buying, selling or both) and then head over to the Central Frederick neighbourhood for some great entertainment.
