Spooky plan for trash and trea­sure

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

TAS­MA­NI­ANS are be­ing urged to host a garage sale in Oc­to­ber to re­home un­wanted items, whether they’ve been hord­ing house­hold ap­pli­ances or Hal­loween hor­rors.

The Garage Sale Trail is a week­end-long event of­fer­ing peo­ple the chance to de-clut­ter and find a home for their preloved items, meet neigh­bours and earn ex­tra cash or raise money for lo­cal causes.

The trail aims to help ed­u­cate Aus­tralians about the im­por­tance of tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for the waste they gen­er­ate.

Al­most 1500 garage sales are ex­pected to be held in Tas­ma­nia on the week­end of Oc­to­ber 20-21.

Mar­garet Sa­muel, of Shear­wa­ter, is hav­ing a Hal­loween-themed sale.

“I’ll be sell­ing some things, try­ing to raise funds for ramps for our fu­ture ac­com­mo­da­tion for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties,” Mrs Sa­muel said.

Mrs Sa­muel has plenty of items to sell.

“My hus­band was born on the 31st, so we’ve col­lected lots of quirky things along the way, so we’ll be sell­ing quite a bit of Hal­loween things,” she said.
