RESIDENTS of a Karrinyup street are banding together to shed unwanted items.

Neighbours on Clevedon Way are hosting their first Garage Sale Trail event on October 21 from 9am to 1pm.

Martina Hoeppner said it was an ideal way to recycle unwanted items and bring the neighbourhood together.

“It’s an awesome street, it’s a good mix of people with lots of kids of different ages,” she said.

“We’re looking forward to just getting together with our neighbours really.”

There will be a variety of items for sale including clothing, children’s toys, plants, furniture and kitchenware, and children will be making fresh lemonade.

More than 50 garage sales will run in the locally on October 20 and 21, including at the Recycling Centre Balcatta and all City of Stirling libraries.

Garage Sale Trail co-founder Andrew Valder met with Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin recently and encouraged residents to be part of the nationwide event.

“Past Garage Sale Trail events have seen anything and everything listed for sale,” he said.

“From a definitive collection of 1970s Rolling Stone magazines, to a beachside apartment, miniature goats, free pet baptisms with every purchase and even a couple of grandpas listed at a bargain price!”
