Everything and the Kitchen Sink

Empty your closets for this massive indoor yardsale.

Spring cleaning brings hope of decluttering to homes everywhere, but all that mess has to go somewhere. Enter Eyelevel Gallery. The uniquely site-less organization is turning trash into treasure with an indoor yard sale cheekily called Kitchen Sink.

Eyelevel’s Emily Lawrence says that the goal is to foster a family friendly weekend that can be enjoyed by all, whether patrons are regular shoppers or of the window variety.

“It’ll be sort of like a flea market—there will be lots of things for sale that have been donated by community members,” she says. “We’ll also have music and a lemonade stand and we’ll be selling raffle tickets for raffle baskets we’ve put together from donations from local businesses.”

Proceeds from the event will help fund Eyelevel’s summer events, including remounting Food for Thought, its series from last summer, a combination artist talk and public picnic, and Sitelines, a book that recounts the early years of the gallery’s now-signature lack of a permanent space.
Raffles, lemonade and child-friendly DJs aside, Lawrence says she’s looking forward to seeing what contributions Halifax residents make to the free, weekend-long sale.

“We’re having people donate their unwanted items to the sale,” she says. “I’m excited to see what kind of spring cleaning rejects we have and all the things they’ll be bringing to us to sell.”
Kitchen Sink takes place March 31 and April 1 at the Saint George’s Round Church
(5435 Cornwallis Street) but until then, donations can be made to the Eyelevel Gallery office (5663 Cornwallis Street) from 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, as well as 12pm-4pm on Sunday, March 26.
