The Garage Sale
Our community's op-shop, where you can buy good quality used clothing, kitchenware, toys and other goodies. We emphasise the "reuse" part of Reuse / Reduce / Recycle.
This wonderful community resource is more than just a garage sale - every penny of the money goes directly to support community groups in the Lyttelton Harbour. The sales can be booked by a group as a fundraiser - they arrive with their own volunteers, manage the sale between 10am and 1pm on a Saturday, pack it away and keep all the proceeds for their cause. Groups that have run sales include: the Lyttelton Sea Scouts, the Community Garden, Lyttelton Harbour TimeBank, Lyttelton Community House, Volcano Radio, the eARThquake Art Therapy Initiative, The Lyttelton Petanque Club and Lyttelton Main School camp.
Donations of quality second hand items (sorry no electrical or large items) are always most gratefully accepted and can be dropped at the shed. If you're having a big clean and sort out, please help your community to help itself by donating to The Garage Sale today! Lyttelton Harbour TimeBank members also receive a TimeBank credit for every donation!
If you are a member of a community group or club and are interested in booking a sale for your group or volunteering please do get in touch with the Project Lyttelton Office on 328 9243.
