Whole town of garage sales

Over 60 garage sales will be held at sites around Creswick on Saturday in a community effort to raise funds to build an indoor swimming pool.

Creswick North Primary School will host a car boot sale featuring entertainment and food and Creswick Market will also sell second-hand goods. 

Creswick and District Acquatic Centre secretary Julie Moran said the garage sale event was attracting interest from keen bargain hunters in Geelong, Bendigo and Castlemaine, but also Melbourne. “I didn’t realise how obsessed some people are with garage sales until we started doing this.”

Maps detailing sites can be purchased from Creswick Band Rotunda and Flemo’s Milk Bar North Creswick from 8am, the Visitor Information Centre from 10am and Creswick Market Victoria Street Gate from 9am.
