Ontario couple accidentally sells treasured wedding video in garage sale

PENETANGUISHENE, Ont. — An Ontario couple is hoping the people who bought their treasured wedding video at a garage sale will return the tape.

Randy Ladouceur of Penetanguishene, about 150 kilometres north of Toronto, says the video was in a box with a few dozen other VHS tapes including “The Land Before Time” and other cartoons.


He and his wife were selling the tapes for 10 cents each, but when a couple offered Ladouceur three bucks for the box, he didn’t think twice.

Ladouceur says his wife, Claire, realized after the weekend garage sale that she’d put their wedding tape in the box as well.

Ladouceur says he doesn’t remember a lot about buyers, but says they drove a black SUV, and the man mentioned he laid tiles for a living and was wearing a Maple Leafs jersey.

Ladouceur says he just wants his wedding video back, and is hoping the couple who bought the box will hear the story and contact him.
