Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

IN LESS than a month, Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil will be host­ing com­mu­nity garage sales in each of the four town­ships in the coun­cil area – Air­lie Beach, proser­pine, Bowen and Collinsville.

The sales will be held on Oc­to­ber 25 as part of the na­tional Garage Sale Trail.

Mayor Jenny Whit­ney said they had al­ready had in­ter­est from quite a few com­mu­nity mem­bers who had regis­tered on­line.

“It’s free to bring your ute or car boot or set up a ta­ble or blan­ket full of stuff to sell. You’ll be able to get rid of some un­wanted items, make some money and might even pur­chase some trea­sure from some­one else.

“Whit­sun­day Re­gional Li­braries will have books, mag­a­zines and DVDs on of­fer with prices start­ing from 20 cents.

“Each of the four com­mu­nity garage sales are setup as events on the Garage Sale Trail web­site and in­ter­ested peo­ple can say they are at­tend­ing as a stall holder.

Garage Sale Trail, a na­tional day of si­mul­ta­ne­ous garage sales, is now in its 4th year and up­wards of 350,000 peo­ple are ex­pected to take part in the ini­tia­tive across Aus­tralia, with 120 Coun­cils in­volved.

You can reg­is­ter to sell at one of th­ese com­mu­nity events or setup your own Garage Sale by go­ing to garage­sale­
