Save the date for the 2014 HMBCA Community Garage Sale!

This year’s edition of the HMBCA Community Garage Sale will be held on Saturday, June 7th!  This is your chance to get rid of those unwanted items you’ve dug up during spring cleaning and put a little extra cash in your pocket.

Why register for the community garage sale?

Within the next few weeks registration will open so HMBCA members can list their garage sale on our website and on a printed list and map for eager shoppers. The HMBCA takes care of all the advertising to make sure that the entire city knows we’re open for business! The more homes that register and hold a garage sale, the more shoppers that we can attract.

The rain date for the sale is Saturday, June 14th.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Last chance to get on the Garage Sale map!

The 2013 HMBCA Community Garage Sale is quickly approaching, and this is your last chance to register your home to be featured on the printed map! This map will be handed out around the community on Garage Sale day so shoppers know where to go for the deals!

If you’d like your home to be featured on the printed map, register your Garage Sale by tomorrow, Wednesday, May 8 at 5:00pm.

You can still register your home after this time, but it will only be featured on the Garage Sale web page.

Volunteers needed for the Garage Sale

Now that the details of this year’s HMBCA Community Garage Sale are set, we need some volunteers to help out! Our first task is distributing flyers to homes in the HMBCA area (which includes HMB Tamarack, HMB Mattamy, The Meadows, and HMB South). This will take place within the next week or so. On the day of the Garage Sale (May 11th) we need help with the following:

  • Handing out maps to shoppers;
  • Staffing the HMBCA tent where coffee and goodies will be handed out, as well as educating non-members about the Community Association;
  • Walking around the community to visit the participating houses to say hello, and gather feedback.

If you can help out in any capacity, please contact Lisa Noseworthy, Director of Events, at

Registration for the 2013 HMBCA Garage Sale is now open!

garage-sale-sign-may11We’re happy to announce that registration for the 2013 HMBCA Garage Sale is now open to our members!

Register now!

Why Register?

As a HMBCA member you can register to have your address featured on a printed map that will be handed out around the community to let bargain hunters know exactly where to go!

You can also opt-in to have your address and some of your items for sale listed on a public Garage Sale web page. Listing your items makes it easier for shoppers to find exactly what they’re looking for!

The more houses that register on your street, the more traffic you will get, so make sure to tell your neighbours!

What to do with leftover items?

This year we’ve partnered with the Canadian Diabetes Association Clothesline program to pick up some of your leftover items. The HMBCA has also negotiated an exclusive discount with 1-800-GOT-JUNK for participating homes. More information can be found on the Registration page.

Happy Selling!
