For the first time ever at Palm Lake Resort Upper Coomera, the residents held a successful car boot sale recently. The event was the result of one resident deciding it was time to clean out their cupboards and garage. Wondering how to get rid of all the ‘stuff’, a request to hold a garage sale was put forward. The idea developed into a car boot sale with more than 20 residents displaying and selling their wares to the general public and fellow residents.
Early on the Saturday morning, cars flowed across the road to the empty land opposite the resort and residents proceeded to unload boxes of preloved goodies. Some items larger than the car’s boot managed to find their way across the road – there was even a boat for sale!
The general public and fellow residents combed through the treasure, helping rid residents of their clutter. Sales strategies were learned and shared throughout the day to ensure no one took home too many unsold goods. Given the success of the event, it was decided that another car boot sale would be held in the near future with crowds enticed via a delicious sausage sizzle and maybe even the smell of coffee brewing. One thing is for sure – everyone had fun!
