Grab a bargain at Carlton’s first-ever garage sale
The Carlton Neighbourhood Learning Centre (CNLC) will host its first garage sale where locals and visitors can grab some fantastic bargains.
The event, which will take place on November 11 from 9.30am to 2pm, will have range of second-hand items on offer including antiques and collectables, clothing and accessories, homewares, books, kids’ stuff, plants, garden tools and more.
CNLC executive officer Tony Milne encouraged everyone to come along while supporting a good cause.
“We’d love to see a great turnout of people on the day. We’ll also have music and a barbecue. Come and grab yourself a bargain,” he said.
“It will help us raise funds so we can continue to support some of the most disadvantaged people in the Carlton community, while also complementing our existing waste minimisation compost and recycling programs.”
The event is part of the annual nation-wide Garage Sale Trail festival designed to curb landfill and provide the community with ways of reusing unwanted items.
The Garage Sale Trail’s general manager Barbara Gill said her team was “super excited to be bringing this event to Carlton Neighbourhood Learning Centre”.
“It’s all about neighbours connecting, making some money and keeping their good stuff out of landfill, with a good dose of fun on the side,” she said.
CNLC, located at 20 Princes St, Carlton North, is an integral part of the community, offering educational and community programs to people of all ages and backgrounds. •
