Garage sale a huge success

12 Nov 2013

Garage sale a huge success Image

The Garage Sale Trail at Boyd Community Centre was a huge success last month, attracting about 40 stalls and numerous visitors to enjoy the day.

The trail was a statewide initiative to encourage neighbourhoods to have garage sales which, of course, is a little difficult in a high and mid-rise community where hardly anyone has a garage of their own.

Thankfully Boyd provided the perfect space for the community day and having all the stalls in one place created a carnival atmosphere.

The centralised venue meant Southbank’s trail had an extremely high community feel.

Stalls varied and one favourite was mother and daughter combination Tilly and Sally Esse (pictured above) complete with vintage toy car.

Among the sales were activities and entertainment including live music, food vans and an auction of television show Neighbours memorabilia.
