Is The QCB BOARDWALK festival & sale the ultimate way to - REUSE, REPURPOSE, REDUCE & RECYCLE?

More than a hundred tables filled to overflowing with stuff, junk, finds, dust collectors, treasure, antiques, collectibles, bric-a-brac and other indescribable items line the Quayside Boardwalk  from River Market to the rail bridge.  You walk up and down eyeing everything used; as rock music enhances the frenzy of the treasure hunt.  You have selected your purchases, are happy with your finds and head to the many food outlets to grab a bite and re-nourish yourself before you take just one more walk along the promenade...just in case you missed something!

Well, for some the BOARDWALK festival & sale goes something like that.  But for the sellers in the event - they are just interested in passing their well loved, but used goods to someone else who will use and love them like they did over the years.  Instead of throwing it into landfills, we gladly throw it into the arms of a stranger who for some reason - loves it!  And lets be honest, at the Quay there is a LOT OF NICE STUFF TO BE HAD.

Is this the ultimate way to recycle?  Let us know your thoughts, or perhaps you have a story about that favourite piece that now lives in some strangers home .... share with us your comments.
