THIS weekend’s Garage Sale Trail will include a Jolly big collection of second-hand machinery and vehicles in Gnangara.

Resident Chris Jolly has signed up for the October 22 initiative, hoping to sell a few big ticket items, including old cars, a ski boat and caravan.

Mr Jolly said he has recently sold a 1618ha wheat and sheep farm in East Katanning, and moved many items to his 1ha Louise Place property.

“It all got brought here until I worked out what to do with it,” he said.

“It’s a little bit crowded.”

His “Collectors dream sale” will include a 1971 HG Holden, a new 350 Chev Tandem car trailer, an Austin Champ, tractor parts, various collectables, clothing and household items.

“There’s a few vintage car parts for a 1924 Dodge and various tractor parts from the 1930s to the 1960s,” he said.

Mr Jolly said he was selling a ski boat bought in about 1970 and used on the Swan River around Point Walter and Deep Water Point.

“Last year we put a brand new motor on it – you will get a fair bit of fun out of that yet,” he said.

He also hopes to sell a Royal Flare caravan bought about five years ago by his mother-in-law’s partner, who died of cancer without being able to use it to travel.

Mr Jolly’s garage sale will be open from 7am to 5pm on October 22 at 52 Louise Place, Gnangara.

Participating for the first time, the City of Wanneroo has the highest number of registered garage sale sites in WA.

About 110 sites had registered by last week, including a Madeley group sale called “All in The Name Of Charity for Kenyan School” which will raise money for a primary school in Kenya.

With another 100 stallholders registered, Nollamara RSL’s Special Swap Meet at Wanneroo Showground is one of 10 group sales taking place on Saturday.

Others include Yanchep Playgroup, Leeway Street sale in Alkimos, Mindarie Regional Council Tip Shop in Tamala Park and Limelight Theatre in Wanneroo.
