Biggest Garage Sale Day on the North Coast
Roll up, roll up! Second Hand Saturday is on again on Saturday 23 September across Ballina, Byron, Clarence Valley, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley and Tweed regions. It’s the biggest garage sale on the north coast and a chance for you to turn your trash into treasure. A ‘leftovers’ day will also be held on Saturday 30 September so you get double the chance to sell your stuff.
Register online to hold a garage sale and we’ll promote it for free in local newspapers, online and in our handy Second Hand Saturday app. It’s free to register and you’ll also be able to pick up a free garage sale sign from your local Council in the weeks leading up to the big day.
With over 1,000 garage sales at last year’s event and hundreds of shoppers on the hunt for a bargain, this year is set to be bigger than ever. Jump on the bandwagon and make reuse and recycling fun!
3 top reasons to hold a garage sale
- Swap your clutter for cash – Second Hand Saturday is a great excuse to have a big spring clean and de-clutter the house. Why hoard all those unused and unwanted household items when you could sell them and put the money to good use? Clothes, furniture, kitchen items, toys, books and more … you’ll be surprised at how many things could be given a second life in a new home.
- Raise money for your local club – A giant garage sale is a fantastic idea for an annual fundraiser. It’s also an opportunity to get together and show off your team spirit as part of this fun community event. With free promotion across the north coast, don’t miss your chance to raise funds and spread the word about your cause.
- Help the environment – With millions of tonnes of waste being sent to landfill by Australian households each year, holding a garage sale is one of the best ways that you can join the war on waste. Avoid a trip to the tip and let someone else breathe new life to your old treasures. Together we can lead the way on reuse and recycling across the North Coast! Let’s do this!
