Residents are urged to buy second-hand and choose to reuse this weekend as the Garage Sale Trail hits the Great Southern.

The award-winning sustainability event has inspired Albany residents to join hundreds of thousands of Australians in organising a garage sale.

There will be about 50 garage sales in Albany, including group events like the Crazy Car Boot Sale and Swap Meet at The Track on Saturday and Sunday.

Albany Roller Derby League president Natalie Jarvis said the league organised the Swap Meet at The Track event to promote the venue and raise funds for the club.

“We will be doing a barbecue and there will be a coffee van available,” she said.

“We’ve got women’s clothes available for sale, kids; toys and bikes and a lot of roller skates as well.

“The Garage Sale Trail is a really nice event to promote that buy-sell-swap way of life.

“We’re just charging stallholders $10 each but there is no entry fee for anyone to come in.”

Albany Mayor Dennis Wellington said the Garage Sale Trail was a fun and social way for the City of Albany and its residents to discover the advantages of buying second-hand.
