Aviation Museum parking lot sale this Saturday

There will be plenty to see and to buy in the parking lot of the B.C. Aviation Museum this weekend

The B.C. Aviation Museum in North Saanich hosts its annual parking lot sale this weekend.

There will be plenty to see and to buy in the parking lot of the B.C. Aviation Museum this weekend.

On Saturday, June 15, the Museum holds its annual parking lot sale. Organizer and secretary to the Museum’s board of directors, Eleanore Arkesteyn says there will be a collection of goods donated to the sale mostly by the museum’s volunteers and board members. Anyone can donate to the sale — which is a fundraiser for the B.C. Aviation Museum — but they do not take large items or large electronics, such as microwave ovens or anything bigger. Donations can be dropped off by Thursday, June 13 at the latest, she said.

Also up for sale will be aviation and military books from the Museum’s collection.

The parking lot sale coincides with the Museum’s annual Father’s Day by-donation admission special.

The Museum opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m and all entry is by-donation only.

The parking lot sale itself is running from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. — starting one hour earlier than last year, Arkesteyn said. That is to allow people an earlier start to their day.

The sale — which goes rain or shine — have been going on for years, said Arkesteyn, noting that it was running even before she got involved with the Museum in 2007.

“We’re always trying to organize it a little better each time,” she added.
