Festive garage sale hosted at Chiton

Up to 10 homes will take part in an annual community-based garage sale on Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 21 throughout the Beyond Today development in Chiton, located on Ocean Road between Port Elliott Road and Waterport Road.

The event is organised and sponsored by the Friends of Beyond Association, a residents group formed for the purpose of assisting council in maintaining common community spaces and reserves.

Some potential treasures will be on offer for bargain hunters and besides the usual household and shed/workshop offerings, there will be a collection of framed and unframed watercolours at one location, and an extensive collection of hand-carved vintage, 1940's era, costume jewellery.

In addition, residents not opening their garages on the weekend are being asked to donate any household items they might have sold to a community-organised fundraising stall that will support the Friends of Beyond community maintenance operations.

Music will be provided and sellers are being encouraged to offer baked goods as well.

Organisers are hopeful some spontaneous festivities may arise and welcome all interested to come down for a look.

All necessary COVID-19 safeguards will be strictly observed.
