About 36 individual and group sales across nearly 10 locations registered as part of this year’s Garage Sale Trail.
The national event, supported locally by Yorke Peninsula Council, ran across two weekends, November 12-13 and 19-20.
The event is a fun way for residents to connect, make some money and minimise belongings going to landfill or being illegally dumped.
About 36 stalls from Arthurton to Yorketown offered Yorke Peninsula bargain hunters a massive range of preloved items.
Mayor Darren Braund said keeping usable items in use for as long as possible by buying or selling makes sense for the environment.
“It was pleasing to see so many people out and about perusing the various garage sales,” Mr Braund said.
“The Garage Sale Trail is all about finding new homes for old items, boosting the circular economy and minimising landfill.
“Why throw something out when you could make some pocket money and let another person enjoy it for a long time to come?”
About 2600 items were listed for sale with an estimated 14,000 kilograms projected to be reused over the weekend.
“Thank you to everyone involved in this year’s Yorke Peninsula Garage Sale for making it a success,” Mr Braund said.
“We look forward to the event returning in 2023.”
About Garage Sale Trail Foundation
Garage Sale Trail is a not-for-profit social enterprise founded by Sydney mates, Darryl Nichols and Andrew Valder.
It seeks to educate Australians on the importance of reuse, and the need to take individual responsibility for the impact of our consumption habits whilst also building stronger, more connected and more resilient communities.
Now in its twelfth year, Garage Sale Trail has grown from a grass roots idea in Bondi Beach where it started in 2010 to being powered by 100 councils nationally and supported by PayPal, fashion resale partner Poshmark and the NSW Environment Protection Authority.
