One huge hall, with loads of stuff you can't live without
The National Garage Sale Day is an Australia wide event. It's a great idea and one that is an ideal opportunity for local groups and charities to get in on the action and raise some money. Funds will be raised will benefit community groups, local households and residents.
One venue on the day will be The Gigantic National Garage Trail at Prospect Town Hall sponsored by PLEG Inc. This is is a not for profit, incorporated community organisation, established by a group of Prospect residents in 2006 to actively engage with individuals, community groups, & Prospect Council. The aim is to develop and increase environmental awareness and achieve positive environmental outcomes in the Prospect Council area.

PLEG Inc held a sale last year, and this year they are back with another one and they promise to make it bigger and better than last year. This event is part of Australia's biggest reuse event, with the focus on sustainability, promoting recycling, encouraging community. If you are a community group or charity then this event will provide an opportunity to promote community group activities, encourage membership and raise funds. For others it's a great way to declutter your household and earn some quick cash. If you would like a stall you must book by 15 October 2015. Register by email to Kristina Barnett at: email@example.com. Stalls cost $15 stall for sellers.

If you are out and about going to all the garage sales, then this will be an excellent stop as you will have many sellers all under the one roof. The stalls will be choc a block full of a vast array of goods for sale. There will be something for everyone here. How could you miss it?
