On the trail of some garage good­ies

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

MORE than 1700 garage sales took place around WA on Satur­day as part of the an­nual Garage Sale Trail.

This year’s event was the fifth Garage Sale Trail, with or­gan­is­ers es­ti­mat­ing more than $10 mil­lion worth of preloved items go­ing up for grabs across the coun­try.

Some of the high­lights in­cluded the Lake Monger mar­kets – which fea­tured more than 100 stalls – and the City of Perth’s Trea­sure from Trash Bash, which in­volved a con­verted sea con­tainer in the CBD.

A Garage Sale Trail spokes­woman said WA Bal­let head­quar­ters in May­lands had a “mas­sive” queue of pun­ters keen to get one of the many cos­tumes up for grabs on the day.

The si­mul­ta­ne­ous garage sales took place across the coun­try to pro­mote re­use, build com­mu­nity con­nec­tions and en­cour­age fundrais­ing in a fun, so­cial way.
