Garage sale trail on October 19-20

Love a local garage sale? The biggest weekend for garage sales on the calendar is now just days away.

The popular annual Garage Sale Trail is coming to Naracoorte and Lucindale on Saturday and Sunday, October 19-20, and many locals are expected to open their doors to offer trash and treasure.

If you haven't already, register your garage sale for free at www.garagesaletrail.com.au/NaracoorteLucindale so local bargain-hunters can find your venue.

The national sustainability program is all about reducing waste through the simple act of buying and selling second-hand. With 400,000 Australians expected to participate at over 16,000 garage sales, the event is a great way to declutter, fundraise and meet the neighbours.

There are a large number of local sales registered, and one of the busiest and most popular Naracoorte venues this weekend will be Zanol's Car Boot Sale fundraiser, on the northern outskirts of Naracoorte.

Julie Zanol will be using the weekend as a fundraiser for the RFDS, with site-holders welcome to display and sell their goods for just $5. Cash donations will be taken on the day and there will be a "guess the jellybeans" fundraiser as well.

"We welcome home-based businesses, party plan, local schools, local sport groups, or anyone looking to de-clutter and make a few dollars," Julie said.

Naracoorte Lucindale Council is also a major supporter of the garage sale trail.
