Get on the trail of bar­gains


Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
