Limelight Theatre gearing up for Wanneroo Garage Sale Trail

Limelight Theatre gearing up for Wanneroo Garage Sale Trail

COSTUMES, theatre lighting, audio equipment and a keyboard are some of the items Wanneroo Repertory is selling at its Garage Sale Trail event.

This is the first year the theatre group is taking part in the event and committee member Jane Anderson said there would be a large assortment of second-hand goods for sale.

“We’ve got a bit of everything,” she said.

“We’ve got one of the best costume shops of amateur theatre groups in Perth.”

Ms Anderson said they needed to clear room at Limelight Theatre so bargain hunters could expect to find a range of costumes, lighting, wood off-cuts, jewellery, shoes, boxes of material, audio equipment and props.

The group has also asked its members to take along household items, books, magazines, toys and knick-knacks.

She said the sale was a chance to engage with the community.

“We wanted to get out in the community more and interact with people who don’t go to the theatre,” she said. “It’s an opportunity to raise money so we’re not totally reliant on the money from shows.”

The event runs from 9am to noon on Saturday, October 22, at Limelight Theatre on Civic Drive, Wanneroo and includes musical entertainment, a sausage sizzle, snacks and drinks for sale.

Landsdale business King Bins is also participating in the Garage Sale Trail.

Business development manager Aaron Baker said there would be good condition second-furniture, homewares, automotive parts, electronics, toys and books on offer.

“All items were originally disposed of in skip bins and would otherwise be destined for raw material recycling,” he said. “We want to help raise awareness about re-using items, reducing landfill while actively engaging the local community in the recycling process.”

Money raised will be donated to the First Nations Homelessness Project. Visit 236 Gnangara Road, Landsdale from 10am to 5pm on October 22.
