Whitsunday Regional Council is hosting community garage sales in each of the four townships onthe 25th October as part of the national Garage Sale Trail.
Mayor Jenny Whitney said two-thirds of Australians admit to having too much stuff at home and not enough space for it all.
“October 25th is a chance to sell your excess stuff and make a little money, after all one person’s trash is another person’s treasure,” she said.
“Council will be holding free community garage sales or car boot sales at ProserpineShowgrounds, Whitsunday Sportspark, Bowen PCYC and Collinsville Community Centre, as part of the national Garage Sale Trail.
“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.
“It’s also a great chance to come together as a community to have some fun, make a few dollarsand play our part in living more sustainably.
“Whitsunday Regional Libraries will have books, magazines and DVDs on offer with prices starting from 20 cents.
“People interested in attending are encouraged to register their interest on the Garage Sale Trailwebsite.
“Each of the four community garage sales are setup as events on the Garage Sale Trail websiteand interested people can say they are attending as a stall holder.
“People can also register their individual Garage Sale on the website and host it from their ownhome if it is more convenient.
“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,” she said.
