UPCYCLERS, recyclers and those looking for a bargain will be spoilt for choice this weekend when the Garage Sale Trail returns to Fremantle.

Dozens of locations throughout the greater Fremantle area will have wares up for grabs at this year’s event.

They include never-before-seen pieces from well-known local artist Anya Brock and a group of nurses aiming to raise money to create 1000 reusable menstrual packs for Days for Girls.

Beaconsfield Primary School is also getting in on the action, with the school’s event organiser Heidi Hammond saying it was a great way for families to clear unneeded items from their homes.

“With all our families donating so many items, it’s shaping up to be a giant garage sale,” she said.

“There’ll be something there to please everyone. In addition to the items donated by our families such as books, clothing, toys and homewares, we are also selling plants and succulents that our families have been potting over the past few weeks.

“We will also have our famous cake stall with home-baked cakes, slices, sweet treats and jams as well as cakes donated by Quirky Bird Kitchen and South Beach Custom Cakes.

“There’s a strong sense of community among the Beaconsfield families so we are excited to be participating in an event that will engage our local community, yet takes place nation-wide.”

The Garage Sale Trail is on October 21 and 22.
