Story

For the first time, the sale was opened with a fanfare, composed by Mark Rogers and performed by Mark, Terry Heckman, and Sally Cochrane.

The storage/work area was 2500 square feet, and the sale used about 5000 of the available 7000 square feet of vacant store space. There was plenty of space for wheelchairs and shopping carts.

In addition to the shelving owned by the sale, two 3-tier units were borrowed from Wal-Mart and ten 4-foot tables were rented from Hub City Display.

Approximately 42 core volunteers worked year-round for the sale. Janice S held two workshops on sorting and one on pricing. 52 additional volunteers helped at the cash desk during the sale.

$384.35 was made from the sidewalk sale, which consisted of three tables of items selected for summer reading or listening. It was held in the centre court area of Confederation Mall. Of total revenue, 67.9% was from books, 21.8% recorded music, 10.3% sheet music.
