Trunk Sale set for May 13 in Salmon Arm

Looking to sell, trade or give away some of your unwanted or previously-loved things but can’t hold your own garage sale?  

Then you’ll want to take part in the free CSRD Trunk Sale being held on the south side of the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds (481- 5 Avenue SW, Salmon Arm) on Saturday, May 13 from 9 AM to noon.

Organized by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s Waste Reduction Program, the event champions the concept of reuse and recycle, with one giant community garage sale.

The event is built around reuse and, most importantly, keeping items out of the landfill.

“The idea is to load up your car with stuff you no longer need and sell it, rather than throwing it away. Rather than hosting a sale on your own, this event brings people together for a garage sale on a much larger scale,” says Graham Casselman, the CSRD’s Waste Reduction Coordinator.

“There has been tremendous response to previous events in Salmon Arm, with more than 60 vendors participating at each event and hundreds of potential buyers coming to take a look,” Casselman adds.  

Anyone interested in being a vendor on sale day should sign up early. As the name suggests, you do the selling from the trunk of your car, van or back of your pickup. There’s no charge to be a vendor, but you do need to pre-register by contacting the CSRD’s Waste Reduction Coordinator at 250-833-5936 or

The deadline to register as a vendor is Wednesday, May 10, 2023.

If you don’t have items to sell at the Trunk Sale, be sure to come and shop for great bargains at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds.

Another event will be held in Revelstoke later in May, watch the CSRD website for more details on that event.
