Big day for the bargain hunters



EVERYONE loves a bargain and tomorrow Clarence Valley residents will have the chance to indulge in that love during Second Hand Saturday.

Hundreds of garage sales are being held from 8am all over the North Coast, giving you the opportunity to grab yourself a bargain, seek out special treasures, meet your local community and just join in the fun.

More than 90 Clarence Valley households have registered, and with all of them listed in tomorrow's Daily Examiner. Make sure you grab your copy early to find the sales closest to you.

Education coordinator for the North East Waste Forum Linda Tohver, said there had been a fantastic response to the Second Hand Saturday concept.

"Everyone can get involved (and) by finding out where Second Hand Saturday garage sales are happening ... you'll also be helping to save our precious resources and our local environment, by purchasing something second-hand instead of something new," she said.

Garage sales are also being conducted in Byron Shire, Ballina Shire, Lismore City, and Richmond Valley.
