The final Nose Creek Valley Museum Car Boot/Flea Market Sale was this past Saturday and it was a hit.

A car boot sale is where residents gather together to sell their own personal items to other residents. It's basically a garage sale, but all in one space.

This being the third and final car boot of the summer, much-needed funds were raised for the museum.

"The event went really well, we sold out our parking lot. We had 28 vendors registered and we made just over $1,000 for the museum," stated Rebecca Skidmore, Curatorial Assistant with the museum.

The first two car boot sales raised around $1400 and all the car boot sales together raised $2400. 

"It'll go towards keeping the museum open, keeping the lights on and doing any maintenance or anything we need around the building."

According to Skidmore, the only other funds they receive are donations from people when they visit the museum, so these fundraisers help a lot.

While weather plagued the second car boot sale, everything went as good as it could go for the latest one.

"The weather was really nice, it worked out really well, and everyone seemed really happy. We're really happy with how it all turned out."

These car boots/flea markets are going to become regular events for the museum in the summer. They plan on hoising three more next year.
