City of Perth Joins the World’s Biggest Garage Sale.
The City of Perth is encouraging households, community groups and businesses to get involved in this year’s Garage Sale Trail, by setting up their own garage sale, or getting a group together to hold a jumbo sale. Garage Sale Trail is a national event being held on Saturday 24 October, where garage sales will be held across the country, to encourage people to re-use everyday items, reduce waste to landfill, meet thier neighbours, and to raise money to benefit the community. The City of Perth will host Pop-up Op Shops in Forrest Place, where the Red Cross will sell items collected in the Murray Street Mall the week prior. It will be a treasure trove for shoppers seeking bargains, and all money raised will go to charity. Registrations are open now and it’s free to get involved. Sellers hosting sales can put their ‘sale on the trail’ and list key items, while shoppers will be able to plan their day by searching for sales in the city centre, Northbridge, West and East Perth.
