Springwood’s BIGGEST Garage Sale
Spring has sprung and with it comes the traditional Spring Clean where households across the country ‘Marie Kondo’ their entire homes in a bid to shed the excess ‘stuff’ and make a few extra dollars in the process.
Whether it is out with the old and in with the new or an attempt to simply live a more minimalistic life, there will always be a savvy shopper on the other side ready to take on your old possessions and give them a second chance at a new life and home.
So, we ask – What do you get when you combine a Spring Clean with Elements Retirement Village?
SPRINGWOOD’S BIGGEST GARAGE SALE!
Bargain hunters, plant lovers, Christmas shoppers, collectors and vintage fashion enthusiasts rejoice – Elements Living has combined forces with the national Garage Sale Trail to bring you Springwood’s BIGGEST Garage Sale. Over 100 homes in the Elements Village are participating in the shopping event of the year, providing a mecca for treasures, tools, homewares, plants, appliances, bric-a-brac and things you did not even know you needed.
This particular event will not be short of flair and fun. Expect to find unique and interesting pieces that reflect the wonderful individuals that reside here in our gorgeous Village.
What Is the National Garage Sale Trail?
Supported by the Logan and Brisbane City Councils, the Garage Sale Trail is a national event held across the 21st and 22nd of November. Aussie households are encouraged to join the trail and either participate in the buying or selling. With the pandemic putting extra financial strain on many families across the country, this year’s “Recovery Edition” of this national initiative helps everyday folk earn some extra pocket money and allows shoppers to bag a bargain.
In addition, this weekend also gives unwanted items a new lease on life, finding a new home and thus helping our environment in the ‘circular economy’
Last year over 400,000 Australians got involved at 18,000 garage sales country wide. The national effort helped to divert over 3.2 million kgs of unwanted items from landfill.
This year, we hope to be part of that effort.
Get Your Bags At The Ready!
On Saturday the 21st of November at 7AM our Village gates will open to the public and over 100 homes set and ready, decked with the most eclectic selection of items ready to find a new home.
AND, There’s More…
For those who wish to use this opportunity to explore our Village, we invite you to stay on for our Open Day which commences at 10AM, upon completion of the Garage Sale. Get an exclusive look at all the Elements has to offer, discover our spacious 2 and 3 bedroom homes and get acquainted with our wonderful community.
