IPD Garage Sale 2022 Overview


Thank you for joining us!


It has been a few years since our last Garage Sale event.  It was refreshing to finally have our annual event. IPD’s Garage Sale is known for having some of the most unique Volvos on display. We packed our main lot with a variety of Volvos ranging over 60 years.  IPD and the Volvo community created one of the best Volvo cars shows in the country, we’ve turned it into one of the best charity events around.  IPD has an incredible relationship with a local non-profit providing nursing care to medically fragile children and young adults.  For many years this Volvo community has raised thousands of dollars supporting an amazing organization.  IPD and Nursingale would like to thank everyone who attended this incredible event.  It was easy to see that the Volvo community was looking forward to having an event strictly catered to Volvo.  We appreciate everyone who made the trip to Portland to join us.  Thank you for the support!

Overview Video of the Garage Sale event

If you weren’t able to make the trip over to Portland this year, no worries.  We hope that you’ll be able to come see us next year during our 60th anniversary.   Here is a video showing how we crammed tons of cars in the main parking lot.   This event grows each year.  We’ve had to utilize neighboring businesses parking lots so we can display all the Volvos properly.  We also have one of the best swap meet sections around.  As you can see the weather cooperated making this day even better than we could've imagined!

Car Show & Show N' Shine

With twice as many cars attending this year’s event, we knew it was going to be tricky getting all the cars in the correct spot.  IPD would like to thank all Volvo owners who attended the Main Car Show and Show N’ Shine section.  Everyone started around 8:00am packing into the main car show areas.   We were successful in getting all the cars parked appropriately without any dings or damage!  Having to navigate in tight spaces proved to be a challenge.  The commitment of all the owners knowing how crucial it is getting the cars aligned properly is what makes this event so much fun to attend.   We appreciate everyone who brought out their Volvo projects for everyone to see. 

David Douglas Cheer Squad Food and Drink

The David Douglas Cheer Squad has supported the IPD Garage Sale for many years.  They provide all the food and drink throughout the day keeping all the attendees happy.  The David Douglas Cheer Squad also supports Nursingale by selling raffle tickets.   IPD vendors donate products that go into our raffle section.   The cheer squad makes sure everyone is up to speed on how the raffle works and where It’s located on the IPD premises.  They’ve always been a huge help making this event even more spectacular.

Nursingale was on site during the Garage Sale event speaking with many Volvo enthusiasts!  Our vendors and partners donate many products that go into IPD's Raffle and Auction.  These events are extremely popular among the community.  It's fun to watch people bid and win prizes througout the day.  Nursingale and IPD appreicate everyone who donates products and contribute to all the fundraising events at the show.  Thank you for helping raise thousands of dollars for Nursingale over the years.  We appreciate the support.
