Discover amazing finds at virtual Trunk SaleNovember 4, 2020
Jumpstart your holiday shopping with a variety of amazing makers, artists and vendors – all from the comfort of your home.
The annual W3G & Co. Trunk Sale is back in virtual format this year, with over 90 vendors offering a digital showcase of their products over two days. The sale will begin at 10 am on Saturday, November 14th and continue until 5 pm on Sunday, November 15th.
A traditional kick-off to the holiday season for many, the popular Trunk sale is typically held on the first weekend of November at beautiful Marlin Orchards. The pandemic sidelined plans for an in-person event this year however organizers pivoted and moved online to the delight of many.
“We have gathered some great talent and we’re excited to showcase them at the Trunk Sale,” said event organizer Debbie Burns. “It’s a great opportunity to discover some amazing makers and support local businesses and entrepreneurs at the same time.”
How it will work
On Saturday, shoppers can log on to the W3G & Co. website – www.we3girls.ca – after the virtual doors to the sale open at 10 am. Shoppers will be able to view the participating vendors and click on their link to be redirected to their business page. Put on your pyjamas, pour yourself a hot cup of cocoa and do some holiday shopping right from the comfort of home!
One of the nice things about the Trunk Sale is that it brings together artisans with established small business owners as well as aspiring young entrepreneurs.
“The Trunk Sale continues to support our youngest entrepreneurs and help them introduce unique quality products,” said Ms. Burns.
The event also has a tradition of giving back to the community. Since 2010, the Trunk Sale has raised over $200,000 for local charities.
