Register Now for the Day of Garage Sales


After consulting with a number of our members, we’ve decided to revive the Day of Garage Sales for the benefit of the residents of Kensington.

You’re invited to register for our 2019 Day of Garage Sales on Saturday 25th May, if you have an interest in participating, so that you don’t miss out on the opportunity.

By concentrating a number of garage sales across Kensington on the day we hope to attract a hundred or more interested buyers. In previous years it became a well know event and buyers came from all over the metropolitan area. We make it easy for you. Simply, register. We’ll arrange advertising the week before and on the day, and through our posters.

On the day we provide you with a poster for your home. We hand out maps with details of each garage sale and post the details on our website. Most importantly, we protect our sellers from early morning callers by not handing out maps before 8:00am.

For KRA members, you have the option of holding a garage sale at your home at a cost of $15 or if you only have a few items to sell and want to join others in Pioneer Park, you may have your own table in the park for only $5. If not a current KRA member we require that you pay the $10 membership fee and become a member.

If you have a few unwanted items and you don’t want to bother with your own sale, you may choose to donate them to the Lions Club of Norwood who will be set up in Pioneer Park. Email us if you have such items.

To register, simply complete this registration form (or complete the form in the newsletter) and return to our Secretary together with the required payment.

Please note that to end the day, the Kensington Hotel is hosting a happy hour from 5-6pm, with special priced drinks and nibbles. It is likely that some members will stay on for dinner at the hotel.
