Cantuar Hall is getting lots of love today, as the Junk in the Trunk yard sale is underway.

Folks can make it out to Cantuar Hall today for the yard sale until 2 p.m. Just short ways outside Swift Current on Highway 32, the unincorporated community is coming together to show support for their community hall.

Running the event today is Glenda Allan, coordinator for Junk in the Trunk.

"The turnout is incredible," said Allan. "Beautiful day, couldn't be better."

Junk in the Trunk was Allan's brainchild last year. She is charging people only $10 for a spot in the parking lot to sell their items, while inside the actual Hall itself is a trade show.

In the trade show is Mike Hutchins, owner-operator of Accent Lamps by Mike. He came out to sell his custom lamps, which are made from everything and anything.

He believes in supporting this event, as his children used to live in Cantuar.

"These small towns are so relaxing," said Hutchinson. "Why not do some work to keep them around?"

Anyone interested in his lamps can find his company on Facebook, where they can reach out and inquire about any piece he has on offer.

Hutchinson highlighted the community hall, saying that while they could just tear it down and build a new one, it just wouldn't be the same. 

That was a sentiment echoed by Everett Loeppky, The Quilter, who is also in the trade show selling his wares. He makes his quilts from recycled jeans and other articles of clothing and has been doing so since 1978.

"These little towns are just vanishing, really," said Loeppky. "It's nice to try and keep them up."

His quilts have been featured around the southwest for decades, and have been loved by hundreds of folks as he has sold over 500 in his time. If someone would like to request a viewing of his works, they can call 306-773-2420.

Cantuar Hall will be hosting its next big event this fall, following harvest. The Weiner Rost will be held just before the snow falls. 

Anyone looking to rent the venue for the day can do so for just $75, or $50 if only using the upstairs. The full building includes the hall space, the basement tables and chairs, the washrooms, and the kitchen.
