The National Capital Vegetarian Association is proud to announce that we will be participating in the Great Glebe Garage Sale on May 28, 2011 from 9am – 3pm.

The NCVA will be hosting a yard sale/vegan bake sale to support Project Jessie and the Ottawa Food Bank.

75% of proceeds will be donated to Project Jessie, which works to protect companion animals that must be legally surrendered to research facilities after 72 hours in a shelter in Ontario.

25% will be used to purchase and donate healthy vegan food items to the Ottawa Food Bank. Items that can’t be sold will be donated to local non-profit thrift stores.

The NCVA’s tables will be set up east of Bank St., either on 5th Avenue or Clarey Avenue. An an annoucement of the final location will follow in a day or two.

We welcome ALL donations though, for obvious reasons, we won’t be able to sell things like fur coats. We have no strict definition of what is and is not appropriate for an NCVA sponsored yard sale – just use your own best judgement when deciding what to donate.

Note that all baked goods must be vegan (i.e. free of all animal products including meat, eggs, dairy and honey). If possible, please provide an ingredient list with your baked goods.

Please bring baked goods and yard sale donations to 38 Clarey Ave (see directions below) on Thursday May 26 or Friday May 27 between 6 and 10pm. You can also bring your donations right to the sale site on Saturday, May 28 between 8 and 11 am.

If you can’t make one of these drop off dates please email us at and we can try to arrange another pick-up or drop-off time.


Note that Bank Street in the Glebe (Isabella to Holwood) will be closed from May 24-Dec 30. You can access Clarey Ave by turning right on Holmwood as you head North on Bank Street from Ottawa South. Once you turn on Holmwood, make an immediate left into the dirt road and drive straight for approximately 50 meters until you reach Clarey. Turn right on Clarey. Number 38 will be halfway down the block on your right (the house with the big tree).


We will be pricing donations and making signs for the sale from 6-10 pm on both Thursday and Friday (may 26-27) at 38 Clarey Avenue during the donation drop-off. We’ll also need volunteers on Saturday from 7am-4pm to set up, take down, and run the sale. If you can come for even part of the time, that would great.

Also, if you have a truck and are willing to pick up donations anytime, please let us know!

Please spread the word among your family and friends and feel free to email us with any questions or for directions to the drop-off location.

THANK YOU in advance for your generosity!
