This is going to be big: Choose to reuse and join Second Hand Saturday sales

This a paid promotion for North East Waste.

From camper trailers, wine-making equipment to your favourite artist’s vinyl, it’s all there at the garage sales on November 4 – Second Hand Saturday.

Second Hand Saturday is the biggest day of garage sales on the North Coast and there will be hundreds of garage sales across the North Coast.

North East Waste are working with councils to host the annual community event.

Second Hand Saturday coordinator Linda Tohver said, “this year, Second Hand Saturday forms part of our regional celebrations for Buy Nothing New Month, a month to challenge ourselves to support reuse and repair over buying new wherever possible.”

“Holding a garage sale is a great way to declutter our homes, make some extra cash and give items we no longer need a second chance at being used again,” she said.

“Shopping at garage sales is a way of contributing to our local circular economy – keeping things that still have value out of landfill, extending their lifespan and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Plus, shopping at garage sales is so much cheaper.”

Did you know that roughly three in four Australians buy pre-loved clothing? Furniture and household goods are also a popular second-hand buy, and with the cost of living at a constant increase, many more are turning to pre-loved options over new.

So, if you’ve started your spring clean and uncovered items that haven’t seen the light of day for a very long time, then sign up to hold a garage sale this Second Hand Saturday. Or if you are after a bargain or want to find a special treasure, make sure you visit one of the hundreds of garage sales that will be held across our region.

Here’s some tips on shopping at garage sales.

For those wanting to hold a garage sale you can register up until next Friday , November 3 for a web-listing only.
