This weekend Busselton and Dunsborough will be a bargain-lover’s heaven as the annual nation-wide Garage Sale Trail is held.

The sustainability and community campaign promotes reuse, waste reduction and connects communities during one big weekend of buying and selling.

Busselton Pottery Club will host a special sale. Items donated from members will be sold with proceeds going to the club. The club’s gallery will also be open for shoppers.

Also in Busselton, the annual Signal Park Sellathon is on again for its fourth year.

The sellathon has been dubbed as ‘the biggest and best second-hand markets in the country’.

Busselton Horticultural Society will use their annual show as an opportunity for a garden sale.

Further south, Be Merry on Marri in Dunsborough will be selling succulents, seedlings and handmade candles.

Yallingup’s Southwest Market Day will have a number of stallholders selling wholesale, seconds, vintage, new and pre-loved mid to high end fashion and accessories.

Garage Sale Trail co-founder Andrew Valder said the event was all about encouraging people to take responsibility and adjusting their behaviours to live a more sustainable life.

“Waste reduction and reuse has become a national conversation,” he said.

“Garage Sale Trail encourages people to ‘choose to reuse’. This simple act helps extend the life of our planet’s resources.”
