COMMUNITY GROUP HAS HOPES FOR GARAGE SALE TRAIL
SOUTH Perth Aboriginal community group Moorditj Keila is hoping to use this year’s Garage Sale Trail to gain recognition.
The group organises health, cultural and artistic events and activities for the personal and community development of local Aboriginal people.
When the City of South Perth holds its second Garage Sale Trail on October 22, a number of community members and groups will hold garage sales.
Moorditj Keila chairwoman Dena Gower said the group would hold its garage sale at the Lifestreams Christian Church in Como, where it has an op-shop.
“We have the demountable at the back and we want people to know where we are and what we do,” she said.
“At the op-shop, we sell clothing, linen, cutlery and lots of other things.
“We’ll have cups of tea and cake on the day; we want to make it friendly for people.”
City of South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty said the council was proud to be making the Garage Sale Trail happen locally to provide residents with a fun way to de-clutter, meet people and find some bargains.
“Garage Sale Trail is a simple idea that encourages people to consider how things can be reused while also providing an opportunity to raise money,” she said. “The idea of passing on what you don’t want to a new home is truly a great form of sustainability.”
