Family set to get rid of treasures in generation sale
A ROCKHAMPTON family is bringing a whole new meaning to the concept of passing down items through generations.
Tomorrow the Freitag family will host what they've dubbed a "Generation Sale" - a garage sale offering items from a number of family members.
The sale is one of more than 20 garage sales to be held in the Rockhampton Region today and one of thousands across the country.
They are each part of the Garage Sale Trail - a national initiative dedicated to the great Aussie tradition of converting one's trash to another's treasure.
"My mother-in- law is downsizing, my husband has been going through the shed and together my daughter and I have been seeing what we don't use anymore," Birgit Freitag said on her family's upcoming sale.
"There's something from each of our family and we've also had friends bring around items. We've certainly ended up with a lot."
Their pooled efforts now see everything from household items, sporting goods and even anchors up for grabs.
The Garage Sale Trail is held annually and encourages residents Australia wide to hold their own garage sale and become involved in the nationwide movement.
