Mammoth Sale Approaches

Chloe FraserBusselton Dunsborough Times

The Salvation Army is getting ready for the third annual Signal Park Sellathon this weekend as part of a nationwide Garage Sale Trail event.

More than 10,000 garage sales and stalls will take place around Australia with about 150 local councils taking part. The trail aims to give communities an opportunity to fundraise, promote reuse and enable local community connections.

Busselton’s event is happening at Signal Park on Saturday and Sunday, with this year’s event following a car-boot or market-style garage sale format.

Salvation Army Major Sharon Dannock said the organisation took part in the Garage Sale Trail for the first time last year which helped raise public awareness.

“The Salvation Army are here for the community so we want people to be aware of that,” she said. Mrs Dannock said the stall had a range of items available for sale including craft items, books, puzzles and games.
