Registrations are now open for Yorke Peninsula Council’s Garage Sale Trail event, the perfect opportunity to sell unwanted items, pick up a few bargains, and help the environment.
The Garage Sale Trail 2022 will take place over two weekends, 12-13 and 19-20 November.
Made locally possible by Council, the festival encourages residents to sell, shop and learn about recycling and the circular economy.
Acting CEO Andre Kompler said the event is a fun way for residents to connect, make some money and minimise belongings going to landfill or being illegally dumped.
“Keeping usable things in use for as long as we can by buying or selling it at a garage sale makes sense for our environment and who knows how much benefit for participants,” Mr Kompler said.
“It’s the circular economy recycling in action and it’s something all Yorke Peninsula residents can get behind.
“By registering your event you will have access to tips, resources, advertising and even touch-free PayPal QR code payments, plus you’ll extend the life of stuff you love, meet the neighbours and make some money.”
Between 29 October and 5 November, the community can be part of the Trail Tutorials, a series of inspiring and educational talks all about sustainable fashion and renovations.
Featuring Barry Du Bois, Annabel Crabb and Craig Reucassel—alongside experts in fashion, home renovations and the circular economy—the sessions are hosted online and free to attend.
Then, over two weekends of garage sales hosted simultaneously around the nation, declutter and sell pre-loved goods or shop the trail and snag a guilt-free bargain locally on 12-13 and 19-20 November.
Coobowie Caravan Park managers Kristy and Steven Evans will host a community garage sale at the park and are inviting members of the community to get involved.
“I thought it would be a good idea to get people from the community involved as a chance to connect with others and sell their unwanted goods,” Kristy said.
“It will also be a great opportunity for people who may never have been into the park to see what a great facility we have here in Coobowie.
“I think the Garage Sale Trail is a really cool idea because all you have to do is register and then you are added to a map that people can download.”
