Sale Trail a ma­jor suc­cess

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

CITY of South Perth house­holds, schools and com­mu­nity groups were among hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple across the coun­try who took part in the na­tional re­use, com­mu­nity and sus­tain­able liv­ing event, the Garage Sale Trail on Oc­to­ber 22.

This was the sec­ond year the City took part, with 60 sales reg­is­tered to house­holds and com­mu­nity groups through­out the City, in­clud­ing the Man­ning Men’s Shed and South Perth Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­nity group Mo­orditj Keila.

The Garage Sale Trail was es­tab­lished in 2010 and has grown from a grass­roots event to a pro­gram pow­ered by over 150 coun­cils na­tion­ally.

By or­gan­is­ing com­mu­ni­ties around Aus­tralia to host and shop at garage sales on one big day, the Garage Sale Trail aims to en­cour­age re­use, unite com­mu­ni­ties, cre­ate aware­ness around the is­sues of il­le­gal dump­ing, pro­vide a plat­form for fundrais­ing and in­spire cre­ativ­ity.
