Bargains galore across Lockyer
GARAGE sales popped up across the Lockyer Valley over the weekend, with locals given a chance to pick up a bargain and seek out treasures among a sea of unwanted goods.
The Garage Sale Trail saw more than 300,000 families, groups and businesses open up shop on Saturday and Sunday in an effort to de-clutter and find a home for items that may have otherwise ended up at the dump, all while making a little money along the way.
The Lockyer Valley Community Activities Shed took part in the initiative for the first time this year, mainly selling their handmade wooden creations as well as other bits and pieces they had collected over the years.
President Ivan Dallinger said the heavy rain on Saturday hadn’t kept customers away from seeking a bargain.
“We’ve been trying to get rid most of the stuff that we have here that we’ve made,” Mr Dallinger said.
The Lockyer Valley Community Activities Shed set up their sale at their premises on Saleyard Rd, Gatton.
The Vine family, of Highview Avenue, Gatton, had plenty of visitors perusing their items for sale across the weekend.
