College opens doors to public for used computer inventory
May 23, 2012 / 11:43 am
It will be a buyer’s paradise at Okanagan College on Saturday, May 26.
More than 200 PCs, 50 monitors, and other electronics will be among numerous items up for sale at the Okanagan College Garage Sale at the Kelowna campus.
The sale takes place from 8 a.m. to noon in the automotive shop, and is being held in conjunction with the Regional Waste Reduction Office’s second annual Trunk Sale – also on site in parking lot 17.
Angelika March, assistant to the Regional Dean at Okanagan College, said this is a great opportunity for the public.
“Computers will be going for $20, and we have 15-inch monitors for $5,” she said. “There are also a few printers and projectors available for $20 each, but you’ll have to come early to grab those.”
The sale also features many other used College items, including bookshelves, desks, chairs, filing cabinets, and even some carpentry equipment.
The maximum price for any item in the College Garage Sale will be $20.
All purchases are sold on an “as is” basis. Funds raised will go to benefit future Okanagan College sustainability initiatives.
Last year the Trunk Sale proved to be such a success that March thought it would be a perfect opportunity to piggyback.
Waste Reduction Facilitator Rae Stewart agreed it’s a win-win.
“The Trunk Sale is one giant garage sale so it’s all about bargains, and re-using,” Stewart said. “It’s fun too because people just wheel their way in, and sell straight from the back of their vehicle.”
