2020 ipd Garage Sale Information

Thursday, May 16, 2019 - ipd staff


Event Info

Our annual Garage Sale has become such a fixture in the Volvo community that we have people asking about it months in advance. We’ve heard this event described as one of the largest Volvo gathering on the West Coast and it’s hard to argue. It’s massive and we look forward to this event each and every year.

As usual, we have some great events planned this year so mark your calendar for Saturday May 18th and join us and other Volvo enthusiasts for prizes, car show, raffle drawings, ipd Plinko, swap meet deals, Show'n Shine and sales event. We guarantee that you will see some awe inspiring cars, meet some like minded Volvo lovers and have a great time.

We hope to see you here for this great event.

When: Saturday May 23, 2020 - 9:00am to 3:00pm

Where: 11744 NE Ainsworth Cir. Portland, Oregon 97220

Car Show and Show N' Shine

Car Show in Main Lot: The main lot of ipd will feature some of the more premier Volvos that we've hand selected. If you have a restored, nice original or hotrod Volvo that sticks out from the crowd and would like to inquire about entering it into the car show portion of the event please email details to chris@ipdusa.com. Please email Chris some pictures and details of your car and he will let you know if we have room available in the main lot or if your car is more suited to be in the Show N' Shine area.

Show N' Shine Parking: CALLING ALL VOLVOS!  If your car is not featured in the main parking lot, that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to be seen! Cars in the Show N' Shine will be across the street from ipd in the parking lot of MESD. For a $5.00 donation you can park your Volvo along with other enthusiasts, making it easy for everyone to browse their favorite models. Cars parked in the Show N' Shine area are on a first come first served basis! You can enter the Show N' Shine area beginning at 8:00am. All proceeds raised from the Show N' Shine will be donated to Nursingale Organization in Portland, Oregon. We can't wait to see your ride!

Swap Meet

Swap Meet: If you have parts laying around that you don't need anymore, reserve a swap meet spot and sell them during the event. Each spot is $30 and includes two standard parking spaces in the swap meet area lot next to the Show N' Shine. To reserve a spot in the swap meet portion of the event call 800-444-6473.


As we did last year, we've teamed up with Nursingale, a small 501(c)3 Portland based pediatric non-profit. Nursingale is a fantastic organization dedicated to helping medically fragile children and young adults attain the highest quality of life possible by providing in-home, family-centered nursing care with an emphasis on keeping families together.  

Nursingale is the only non-profit provider of home-based skilled pediatric nursing care for medically fragile children and young adults in Oregon. The clients receiving services require extensive and skilled care by licensed Registered Nurses (RN) and licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) under the direct written orders of the client's physician. Their clients have been diagnosed with serious and rare medical conditions including bronchomalacia, Prune Belly Syndrome, chronic renal and lung failure, spastic Cerebral Palsy, muscular atrophy, myotubular myopathy, Epidermolysis Bullosa and obstructive apnea. These children and young adults are dependent on technology such as ventilators, tracheotomies, vest airway clearance systems, feeding tubes, pulse oximeters, supplemental oxygen, and power wheelchairs. Nursingale’s home based nursing program is a great alternative to institutional and foster home care for persons with complex disabilities. For more information please visit www.nursingale.org

ipd is very excited to work with Nursingale again this year to help bring awareness to the Volvo community about all the wonderful services they provide for children and young adults. Nursingale will be on site during the Garage Sale event ready to talk to you and enjoy all the festivities!
