Another way to find a new home for useful goods you no longer want is to hold a garage sale or have a stall at the local markets.
If you are a member of Transition The Grove you can announce your garage sale on the Community Calendar at no charge.
Contact 0418 721 751 about stalls, or you can just turn up (early)
Stalls at the Ferny Grove markets cost ???$16 per bay. Get there early to choose a bay. Regular stall-holders will have already laid claim to many spots but you should be able to find some free ones. Someone will come and get payment from you.
When your local group next has a gettogether, why not agree that every person who brings an item to swap receives a Swap Voucher? If you bring 3 items, you get 3 Swap Vouchers. At some stage everyone chooses an item they would like from the Swap Table, and pays for it with a Swap Voucher.
