Bathurst's annual Community Garage Sale is set to return to Mount Panorama this Sunday, promising a wide range of treasures for bargain hunters.
The event encourages members of the community to peruse through a wide range of pre-loved goods, while also serving as a key opportunity for stallholders to part ways with household items they no longer require.
"Each year, the Community Garage Sale provides an opportunity to support the community and enjoy pre-loved homewares, fashion, furniture, books and children's items," Bathurst mayor Bobby Bourke said.
"It's a great community event with lots of things to see and do for the family, including face painting, a barbecue and a recycling workshop for children.
"In addition, it provides an opportunity to have a look inside the pits at Mount Panorama."
In a change from last year, the event has moved a month earlier from December to lessen the clash with other community events in the lead-up to Christmas.
"Christmas is a naturally busy time of year so to have it earlier means it would clash with less events in the region," Cr Bourke said.
"As the Community Garage Sale is held at Mount Panorama, it also needs to fit around many other scheduled events within the calendar."
Cr Bourke said Bathurst Regional Council has received a favourable amount of stallholder applications from the community.
We have had more than 90 stall holders purchase sites and while this figure is slightly down on previous years, council is happy with the uptake," he said.
Along with the abundance of pre-loved goods, the event also serves as an opportunity for council to promote the benefits of shopping sustainably.
"Shopping sustainably reduces the impact on the environment, saves money and prevents items from ending up in landfill," Cr Bourke said.
The Community Garage Sale will take place in the Mount Panorama pit complex from 9am on Sunday, November 10.
Entry is via a gold coin donation, with all proceeds going towards the Lions Club of Bathurst.
