Where you can grab a Garage Sale Trail bar­gain

Canning Times - - FRONT PAGE -

LOOK­ING for a hard-tofind AFL player card or vin­tage comic? Per­haps you are just search­ing for sec­ond-hand fur­ni­ture or jew­ellery.

You could be in luck this week­end as the eighth an­nual Garage Sale Trails gets un­der­way.

More than 30 Can­ning house­holds, schools and com­mu­nity groups will join 400,000 peo­ple across the coun­try on Oc­to­ber 20 and 21 to host garage sales.

It is ex­pected that this year’s week­end-long event will in­volve more Aus­tralians than ever be­fore, who will choose to re­use at more than 15,000 garage sale events na­tion­ally.

Can­ning Mayor Paul Ng said the Garage Sale Trail was a fun and so­cial way for the City to en­cour­age re­use and help ed­u­cate the com­mu­nity about tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for waste.

“The City of Can­ning is on an on­go­ing jour­ney to­wards more sus­tain­able prac­tices and pro­cesses, in­clud­ing events,” he said.

“As well as pro­vid­ing an out­let to de-clut­ter and raise money for your­self or lo­cal causes, Garage Sale Trail is a great way to meet your neigh­bours and con­nect with the com­mu­nity.”
