Fri, Jul 5 (9am-6pm) Sat, Jul 6 (9am-5pm)

This 2-day public works sale for the City of Port Alberni includes RCMP recovered stolen property, an accumulation of lost & found items, plus many surplus assets from venue upgrades. The amasment of broad-range items has been accumulating over several years and includes such rarities as an industrial dump spreader and paper shredder, full-size safe, playground rubber, photo station and quad-runners. The more common items are also unique in that they all belonged to different people with their own style, as it clearly shows in this huge collection of gold, coins & jewelry, kayaks, power tools and a drone.

Notes: This is a VIEL sale event, not an auction. A forklift will be on site to lift heavy items. Since many items are still stored on pallets, more photos will be added to the gallery as they become available.
