If you're in Ottawa this weekend, you might want to check out the OC Transpo Lost & Found Sale! It's running Saturday, October 30 from 12-2 PM. What's available at a Lost & Found sale? Basically, the sorts of things that people lose on public transit! Jackets, mobile devices, sunglasses -- and, we would imagine, a whole bunch of umbrellas. More valuable items will be sold by silent auction.

The proceeds of the sale will benefit Heartwood House, a charitable organization. The sale will be held at Heartwood House, 153 Chapel Street, in Ottawa.

    • My guess is that this would be a good place to buy an umbrella.

      Yup, they're usually $1 each, and if you dig through you can find a few nice brand name ones. If you wait right till the end, you can get 2-3 for $1

      Otherwise, there's little of anything else. We go mostly as looky-loos and selection has been poor for the last few sales (yet another after effect of the strike ). They used to have new donated items, like branded T-shirts shopping bags, corporate shwag type stuff, but not so much anymore. The clothes that they do have are ok (Gloves? Maybe Hats? Wash them really, really well), and you might find a gem (like the $2 windbreaker that I got a while ago). Tons of lanyards, keychains (no keys), sunglasses. They have electronics on a silent auction, but there's rarley anything worth staying to the end for. I don't know who would buy a used water bottle, thermos, or lunchbag.

      Still, it's for charity so it never hurts to take a look.

    • I'm always tempted to go to this but wonder if it's worth the time/effort/gas of driving downtown on the weekend. Never thought of posting it here before though, good idea OP.
