James Cowan


James is working in conjunction with VANOC for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and has ordered a list of assets being disposed of by VANOC. James would like to bring the items to EcoReality and sell them locally.


VANOC is selling items for about $.30-$.60 on the dollar of what they paid for them. James has a list of items to purchase, ranging from folding chairs and tables, cordless drills, pallet jacks, white boards etc. James hopes to sell some of the items in Vancouver, then bring items to Salt Spring to sell locally. James would like to use EcoReality as the base for these sales and have two bigger "garage sale" type days as well as sales by appointment for a period of 2-4 weeks. These items can mostly be stored outside under cover (tarped or under pop up tents) but some might need to be stored in the barn. In exchange, James proposes to offer EcReality $200 of goods and Jan and Carol $100 of goods. Residents will also get first pick on any other items to purchase. Residents can also sell other items on the "garage sale" days. Residents can also help James with sorting and selling in exchange for items.
