Bar­gains ga­lore across Lock­yer

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

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.
