With the cooler winds of Winter fading away and the Spring air warming the bones, now is an excellent time for a Spring clean with the “Choose to Reuse” Garage Sale Trail.
It’s an event that started in Bondi Beach in 2010, supported by 148 councils nationally, with 400,000 Australians anticipated to list over 2 million items for sale and reuse at over 15,000 garage sales across the country.
In a bid to help the environment, the Colo Vale Community Association has opted to join the “Choose to Reuse” Garage Sale Trail idea over the month of October.
Saturday, October 13, Community Hall at Colo Vale will be handing out maps with all the locations of sellers in the area.
Balloons will be displayed at the front of sellers gates to make finding locations easier.
Garage Sale Trail is a nation wide program and gives an opportunity for a fun, social way to get rid of items that are no longer in use.
Maps are available from Colo Vale Community Association at the Community Hall, 28 Railway Avenue from 8am – 1pm, October 13.
