Get on the trail of bargains
GARAGE SALE TO BRING COMMUNITY TOGETHER
THE Garage Sale Trail (GST) will provide plenty of bargains for residents in the City of Cockburn this month.
The national garage sale event will hit the streets on October 21 and 22, with sellers including St Jerome’s Primary School, South Beach Community Group and Aubin Grove Community Association.
The sale trail was launched in 2010 and aims to encourage re-use, celebrate creativity and bring local people together.
Today the event is supported by more than 150 local councils Australiawide.
The City of Cockburn is a partner of the event. City waste education technical officer Nicki Ledger said the sale trail was a great way of encouraging re-use of materials that would otherwise go to waste, as well as being a fun weekend to fundraise, make a little extra spending money and meet other community members.
“Residents can register their own sales, advertise on the GST website and access a range of promotional materials,” she said.
“Residents can also search a map of sales on the website to plan which sales to attend over the weekend.”
This year there are 250 sales registered to date.
