In what’s believed to be a first for Benalla, the Rotary Club is organising Benalla’s Biggest Ever Garage Sales event for Saturday, September 20.
Rotary’s Steve London said the club decided to go ahead with the concept after seeing communities in NSW holding garage sale events where sellers paid to get on a list of scores of sales on the one day, while buyers were provided with a map of the town with all the sales listed on it, including a description of what would be for sale.
‘‘There were about 25 garage sales on the same weekend last year, so if we can capture those and maybe double it, with 40 garage sales in Benalla on the same day,’’ Mr London said.
‘‘Buyers can come to the Rotary shed at 101 Waller St from 7.30
‘‘At the same time we’ll be selling a bit of breakfast, egg and bacon rolls and tea and coffee.’’
Mr London said it had been done in Tatura and was very successful.
Sellers need to register at Benalla Toyworld, Bridge St or the Tomorrow:Today Foundation office in Cecily Crt, from Thursday, August 28.
The registration fee is $20 and sellers receive a kit of balloons, a garage sale poster, and material about how to run a good sale including sellers’ rights and responsibilities.
The sale will be advertised across town and on TV and radio across the region.
All proceeds will be donated to Benalla Health, Cooinda Village and Tomorrow:Today Foundation.
