A steady stream of Saturday bargain hunters cruised through the Elks Hall and adjacent yard on May 3, during the Elks first annual garage and craft sale.

Outdoor tables were rented for 10 dollars apiece, while indoor craft tables went for $15.


“We’re doing well,” said Elks spokepserson Mac Watson, who was busy resupplying the grills.

“We’ve sold double the breakfasts I had predicted,” he added, “we’ve been steady since 7:30.”


Last minute cancellations reduced the number of tables occupied by crafters inside the hall, which nonetheless had several artists, jewellery, knitting  and wood crafters present.


Keremeos Garden Club members were also part of the sale, holding their annual plant sale in conjunction with the event. The club uses the funds to support Garden Club field trips and tours.
