Maritime Museum of BC’s Massive Marine Garage Sale 2016

Marine Museum BC Sale

May 10, 2016

Marine Museum of British Columbia recently held its annual Massive Marine Garage Sale at the Pier A warehouse building at Ogden point (the cruise ship terminal) on Dallas Road Victoria.

The large number of buyers patiently waited in a lineup that snaked its way into the terminal parking lot.

Each member of my group had their list to share with each other. When the doors opened up, we fanned out in search of each other’s items. It wasn’t very long before the text messages helped us zero in on our list of hard-to-find items. I should mention the prices were fantastic.

For those who missed this fantastic event, you need to mark this down on your calendar for next year, right away.

The Marine Museum’s Board would like to thank everyone who came out to support the 13th annual Massive Marine Garage Sale. Also, special thanks to the sponsors. This was another successful event which raised $9000.00 for the Museum.

As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
