Everyone wins with Second Hand Saturday
Thursday 6 April, 2017
Second Hand Saturday has become a familiar and popular weekend activity for many bargain hunters in the inner west for almost two decades.
Coordinated by Inner West Council, the next Second Hand Saturday is in Rozelle and Lilyfield on Saturday 15 April.
The idea is simple: Garage sales are held by individual households in adjoining suburbs, turning the event into one giant collective sale known as Second Hand Saturday.
The Second Hand Saturday program commenced locally in the year 2000 in Leichhardt and has run on multiple Saturdays each year ever since as residents quickly embraced the event as a fun, waste-saving initiative.
It’s an antidote to today’s throwaway society, and diverts unwanted ‘stuff’ from landfill.
At the same time, participants make a dollar or two and meet the neighbours.
Everyone is invited to a day of guilt-free shopping and finding a unique bargain.
A list of the garage sales and a handy map will be available on the Council website in the week of the relevant sale. Participating households will have Second Hand Saturday posters out the front of their homes on Saturday 15 April, 9am - 2pm.
The next SHS is in Leichhardt and Annandale on Saturday May 13.
