2019 SecondHand Saturdays coming soon

Thursday, 21 February 2019

Inner West Council is helping residents to ‘Spark Joy’, declutter and join the sustainability movement at the annual mass-garage-sale event, SecondHand Saturdays.

SecondHand Saturdays are a fun, waste-saving initiative and popular weekend activity for many bargain hunters in the Inner West – and have been for almost two decades.

The idea is simple: Garage sales are held by individual households in adjoining suburbs, turning the event into one giant collective sale known as SecondHand Saturday.

Coordinated by Inner West Council, the next 2019 SecondHand Saturday events are:

• Saturday, 9 March: Balmain, Balmain East, Birchgrove

• Saturday, 23 March: Rozelle, Lilyfield

• Saturday, 4 May: Leichhardt, Annandale

Registrations are still open for the Rozelle, Lilyfield event and the Leichhardt, Annandale event.

SecondHand Saturday program commenced locally in 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 all the garage sales and a handy map will be available on the Inner West Council website in the week of the relevant sale.

Participating households will have SecondHand Saturday posters out the front of their homes on the sale days.
