If money is tight or even if it’s not, one of our island’s favorite pastimes is visiting the GIRO (Gabriola Island Recycling Organization) at the end of Tin Can Alley (700 Tin Can Alley).

They have something for everyone, large clothing & shoe selection, seasonal items, bikes, sports equipment, lighting & building materials, kitchen supplies, craft items, kid’s toys and a great selection of books. If you find yourself sorting through & organizing yourself (with your New Years goal), with too much cardboard, glass or paper or items that you no longer need, then this is the place to go!

The hours are from 9:30-4 on Wed & Sat, it’s amazing the amount of pre-loved items you can purchase for just a few dollars.
