Second Hand Saturday is a popular community event held in the Paddington area that encourages residents to hold garage sales and sell their unwanted, pre-loved goods.
It is an excellent opportunity to meet the neighbours and very importantly reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. Why dispose of perfectly re-usable items when you can join in the fun on the day and make a little money while you're at it.
The next Second Hand Saturday will be held on Saturday 10 March 2018.
A shopper's guide map will be available closer to the date which will help you find participating households and a bit about what they have to offer!
Feedback from Second Hand Saturday events is always very positive. Here are some comments from participating residents:
Very Successful - nearly everything sold
I think Second Hand Saturday is an excellent Council initiative
It is an excellent way of recycling, bringing the problem of landfill to the attention of the community, creates co-operation between Council and residents (and among neighbours) and is good fun
The neighbours congregated in the lane and we all had coffee in the sun while waiting for buyers
We had great fun. 3 houses involved and we each made over $250
Clearing out unwanted things that have been piling up in my house since 1973
De-clutter, sell unwanted good quality / good condition items and save on landfill
