Community invited to first second hand sale

LIKE most households, Ringsfield has a thing or two to get rid of.

Everything from building materials and old barbecues to vintage memorabilia and antique furniture, rustic items to fine china will be a part of the huge garage sale in the grounds of Ringsfield House on May 17.

As part of the garage sale, Ringsfield House is also introducing Secondhand Sunday, turning its garage sale into a giant community event.

Secondhand Sunday will encourage Nanango residents to hold garage sales for their unwanted, pre-loved goods.

Ringsfield House's Roslyn Gregor came across the idea in Sydney and was impressed by its popularity.

"The place was just buzzing over that weekend," Ms Gregor said.

"People came from everywhere.

"All the businesses had specials on, and all the food outlets were open and it became a really big, fun day."

Participants register their address at Ringsfield House, and a small map of registered properties will be available at Ringsfield and other businesses throughout town.

Ms Gregor is hoping to turn the idea into a popular day that will bring the community together.

Those not living in the Nanango township will be able to participate in the form of a car boot sale on the street frontage at Ringsfield House in Nanango.

The first Secondhand Sunday will be held on Sunday, May 17, 9-4pm.

Any business or individuals interested in participating phone Ringsfield House on 4163 3345.
