Vintage Audio & Record Garage Sale – June 8, 2014
On June 8th, 2014 we hosted our 7th Annual Garage Sale. The weather cooperated from start to finish this year – SURPRISE! Diehard Vancouverites come prepared though and are getting better at this – lots of tents – which this time kept the sun off the heads, not the rain!
There were a lot of great vendors, some new, some old, and the food provided by Wings was very yummy indeed and the word spread and they were kept busy all day.
Brian & Daniel Street, Mitch Purdy, Rick Slawson, Mark Smith, Kevin Jones, Darrin Vaughn, our photographer Paul Demara and all the way from Hawaii cause he just can’t get this much fun there – Ken Jencks. You were all there at the crack of dawn to get everything into place and worked tirelessly throughout the day to ensure everyone was looked after.
A special thank you to our esteemed guests, Bob Carver, Brent Butterworth and Red Robinson. I can’t thank you enough for bringing your stories to our local audio enthusiasts. Lots of discussions, lots of sharing and above all absolutely true gentlemen! We were fortunate to have you here for our annual event. Hopefully we can have you back again soon.
All in all, this was an amazing day – one for the record books. I don’t have any stats as to how many people came, I only know from talking to the other vendors and customers that everyone had a great time, found lots of deals and scored a couple of rare pieces.
To everyone who attended, to all the vendors who brought in their gear to sell, and all the volunteers who put in some crazy hours, I thank you! I feel privileged to live in an amazing city with people who enjoy this as much as I do.
