Sale trail will offer goodies from garages

ONE person's junk can be another person's treasure and there's bound to be plenty of both as Australia's biggest garage sale returns to the Fraser Coast.

In the spirit of promoting sustainability, community and commerce, the Garage Sale Trail is once again being plugged by the Fraser Coast Council as the initiative enters its fourth year.

"It is an excellent opportunity for everyone to have a tidy up, potentially make some money and meet new people in your community," councillor Robert Garland said.

"More importantly it promotes reuse - it helps reduce waste to landfill, enables new neighbourly connections and provides a possible platform for fundraising for schools, community groups and charities."

Last year's event had 1.5 million items listed for reuse and more than 119 sales were registered across the Fraser Coast.

During the past three years, the Garage Sale Trail has grown into a national event involving more than 100 councils nationwide, 7000 sales nationally, 360,000 participants and an online audience of 2.1 million.

The Garage Sale Trail will be on October 25.
