ALL sorts of bargains will be on sale when the Alexandra Hills State School holds its market day on Saturday, October 19.
The event is part of the national Garage Sale Trail and will run from 7am to 2pm.
It's a major fund raiser for the school and will have heaps of things for the kids to do, including a jumping castle, face painting and food.
The Garage Sale Trail is happening right across Australia on Saturday 19 and Sunday October 20.
It's to encourage people to put secondhand first and minimise planet impacts.
The Garage Sale Trail is supported by Redland City Council and more than 18,000 garage sale events are expected on the day Australia-wide.
Media partner Australian Community Media, publisher of this website, is supporting the Garage Sale Trail by offering special rates for participants.
The partnership between Garage Sale Trail and Australian Community Media is designed to help the trail grow and incorporate as many events as possible.
From humble beginnings, the trail has grown to be a national event supported by 140 councils.
Now in its ninth year, the award-winning idea seeks to educate Australians on the importance of re-using secondhand goods and the need to take individual responsibility for the impact of our consumption. It also builds stronger, connected and resilient communities.
Co-founder Andrew Valder said he hoped to inspire community-powered change, that allowed people to express themselves while helping to preserve the planet.
"Our aim is to make sustainability fun and social," he said. "To bring awareness to the idea that ultimately we are the ones responsible for the waste we create, the impact we make on our planet both locally and globally and to show people that small actions done at scale can make an impact."
Alexandra Hills school will have market stalls, raffles, and trash 'n' treasure.
