TH­ESE shoes were made for walk­ing, and that’s just what they’ll do when they are snapped up at the World’s Big­gest Garage Sale next Sat­ur­day.

Vol­un­teers spent yes­ter­day un­pack­ing boxes filled with 7000 pairs of shoes donated by not-for-profit Good360.

“We are go­ing to set some bud­gets and try to hit some mile­stones on try­ing to see how many pairs of shoes we can sell,” World’s Big­gest Garage Sale cre­ator Yas­min Gri­gal­i­u­nas said.

“The Bris­bane com­mu­nity love qual­ity and they love a bar­gain.”

The event, which started as a garage sale to get rid of un­used items and to raise money for chil­dren’s cancer, now do­nates hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars to char­ity bene­fac­tors, in­clud­ing The Courier-Mail Chil­dren’s Fund.

Do­na­tions can be made at Unit 6, Ar­ca­dia In­dus­trial Es­tate, 836 Bound­ary Rd, Coop­ers Plains, or you can book a pick-up on­line.
