Victoria’s Largest Garage Sale: Royal LePage Garage Sale For Shelter [Video]

On May 15, 2010, in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, Royal LePage REALTORS® across Canada will be holding massive garage sales in their communities. Building on the success of last year’s event, Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty will be holding what we believe is the largest garage sale in Victoria history!

With the generous support of our clients, friends, and AMJ Campbell Van Lines, we’ve been able to amass more than 8 storage containers of household items, furniture, knick-knacks and more garage sale treasures. The response from the community has been overwhelming and you’re definitely not going to want to miss this sale. There will be deals galore, and all for a great cause.

The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is our national charity, which supports local women’s and children’s shelters and national violence prevention programs. The best thing about the Shelter Foundation is that because its administration costs are covered by Royal Lepage, 100% of every dollar donated goes towards women and children in need.

The sale will run from 9:00 to 3:00 and is being held at AMJ Campbell’s warehouse in Langford at the corner of Jacklin and West Shore Parkway [map]. Enter off West Shore Parkway and look for our REALTOR® volunteers and signs.

Check out this short video (click through if you can’t see it on your email or feed reader) showing the sheer volume of stuff we have to sell. Last year, lots of great stuff went for a quarter, so you’re sure to get some great deals!

Casulo – Apartment in a Box!

And you thought IKEA was innovative!

It seems the Germans are giving the Swedes a run for their money on this one. Casulo, which is CasuloPortuguese for cocoon, describes perfectly this prototype product. The box transforms into an armoire, desk with drawers, desk chair, 2 more seats, six shelf bookcase, and a bed and mattress. Ideal for frequent movers, this unique solution is also environmentally friendly, as there is no waste; all of the material in the box, including the packaging and the box itself, is used in the final set-up.

They even poke fun at IKEA on their website with this picture:
