Time for a garage sale?
If it is then why not hold it on October 25th when lots of other people will be doing this as well.
It is held on October 25th of each year.
Here is a link to what it is all about……….. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NhYw2NWERg&list=UUKVF93CDpuPS7aaJkaO8CUQ
On behalf of the City of Unley, I would like to introduce you to an exciting event happening in your local area on Saturday 25th October - the Garage Sale Trail.
There are around 7.4 million garages in Australia. What if every single one of them had a Garage Sale on the same day? That's the idea behind the Garage Sale Trail!
The City of Unley is participating in the Garage Sale Trail as a fantastic way of promoting recycling and sustainability, bringing together local residents and community groups, and having a bit of fun. We want to give you the opportunity to get involved in an event that is all about the local community, while raising funds to support the great work your group does.
If the 2013 Garage Sale Trail is anything to go by, there will be pop-up record stores, art shows, bike sales as well as your classic clothes and bric-a-brac sales. To see what happened last year or to find out more, head to garagesaletrail.com.au.
Community groups such as yours are an integral part of the local community. By getting involved in the City of Unley’s Garage Sale Trail, you will be given the opportunity to further connect with your local community members, and reinforce the important role that your group plays within the community.
By participating in the Garage Sale Trail you will also have the opportunity to raise funds for your community group, get some publicity for your cause, and to have a little fun!
The Garage Sale Trail can be used as an opportunity to bring your local community together, and host a combined Garage Sale on your group’s premises. For example, what if every member brought along three unwanted items to create a “mega Garage Sale”, with all proceeds raised going to your group?
Registrations are now open so, if you would like to hold a Garage Sale on Saturday 25th October, register your sale by visiting garagesaletrail.com.au.
If you would like to further support this event by placing a poster and/or some flyers at your groups meeting point, please let me know and I can email or post some materials out to you.
