The 24/7 Garage Sale has something for everyone

The 24/7 Garage Sale truly does have something for everyone.

The Garage Sale building is the in the centre of Devlin, beside Greenside’s Meats.

All monies raised are donated to Devlin’s Guthrie United Church. This helps cover the costs of the needs of the church. The 24/7 Garage Sale has been in operation for approximately five years.

It truly is open around the clock and all customers are on an honour system to put the money they feel is a fair price for their purchase in the coffee can. This can is on top of a shelf as you enter the store. The can is checked often throughout the day. There’s been a need to have cameras set up.

All items are donated. There’s always a large supply of books, dishes, pots and pans, and toys. You might find craft supplies, clothes, puzzles, seasonal decorations, items useful for inside, outside and anything in between.

The store is owned by Pam Bujold and Murnie Allen.

Many volunteers give time to help. A few familiar faces you will see often are Pam, Nancy Cain, who does a lot of the cleaning, and Trudy Badiuk who keeps the store as organized as possible, which she says “can be a full time job.” Other volunteers also give their time. The store is kept clean, Covid restrictions apply including wearing of masks.

There has recently been a separate shop made to hold furniture that’s been donated and is for sale. If you wish to see the furniture call Pam at 486-3634 to arrange a time to view, or ask questions.

The 24/7 garage sale is always looking for donations, so please keep that in mind when you’re decluttering your house, garage or any other areas you have items you know longer want.

Pam shared with me that she, along with the congregation, are so glad and grateful to have this source of income.

The organizers of the garage sale would like to thank all that donate, purchase items, volunteer or help out in any way to make this a success.

Be sure to stop by and check it out – there truly is something for everyone!
