Come Saturday 23 September the NSW North Coast will be buzzing with the biggest garage sale day of the year as bargain hunters get amongst the fun of Second Hand Saturday.
Without a doubt, two of the most excited treasure hunters will be dirtgirl and scrapboy who are busy packing their bags to head to the North Coast for Second Hand Saturday.
With the brand-new series Get Grubby TV now screening at 8.20am each day on ABC Kids and iView, you might think the stars of the show would be too busy for a big day out at the garage sales! Not so for this grubby gang of planet lovers who will be exploring the garage sales in the Clarence Valley and Tweed Shire.
Both dirtgirl and scrapboy will be posting live updates on the dirtgirlworld Facebook page as they explore the garage sales on Saturday 23 September. With wish lists including an old chandelier and a rain gauge, who knows what they will find to take back to dirtgirlworld!

Planet loving dirtgirl herself will be visiting the garage sales in the Clarence Valley.
“This will be my first time at a garage sale and I’m really excited, even though I am wondering how I will fit a garage in my reusable shopping bag…just kidding!” says dirtgirl.
“I like the idea of having exclusive access to a whole lot of cool stuff that never makes it into the shops, especially some nanna things. And I love that I will be reusing other people’s stuff at my place rather than it sitting somewhere being unloved or getting tossed out!”
dirtgirl’s wish list:
• Some seedlings
• 3 new planter pots
• An old chandelier
• Things to make a garden mural with
• Some old toys for my new idea for a dinosaur garden
• A bucket

“I’m a big believer in second hand, in fact I only ever buy or collect second hand stuff. Pretty much everything we make is from other people’s throw outs or spring cleans. I made the ‘scrapellite’ and the juicer, the washing machine and the flying fox from things we got second hand!” says scrapboy.
“And just lately we made dirtgirl’s new party dress from stuffed toys that no one wanted anymore. But the best thing I have ever made would have to be the ‘Costavator’! Everything used to make it was sourced from garage sales.”
scrapboy’s wish list:
• A rain gauge
• A tape measure…retractable
• The Hobbit – a great book!
• A few switches
• An old traffic light (this is a long shot!)
• Some new tunes on old vinyl records
