What’s your name and where are you from?
Hannah Klose, Auchenflower Brisbane.
Why are you excited to be a garage sale trail ambassador?
I’ve been an ambassador for a few years now and it’s one of my favourite weekends of the year…it’s a nationwide treasure hunt…what more could you want?!
What’s the best thing about garage sales?
It’s hard to narrow it down to one thing so here’s three…finding a bargain, saving things from landfill and meeting your community and making new friends along the way.
What’s the best thing you’ve ever bought at a garage sale?
One of my favourite pieces I found on the 2014 GST was a $2 leather satchel made in Argentina! The lady selling it threw in a free piece of cake as a bonus! haha. I also love my caramel trench that I found for $4…it’s one of the best staples in my wardrobe and I wear it on repeat each winter.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen for sale at a garage sale?
A sass & bide denim jacket for $2!! SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
What would be your dream garage sale find?
I’m currently on the look out for full length denim overalls and a killer pin tucked armchair so if you’re selling either of those let me know! Please and thank you!
Who would be in your dream garage band?
James Vincent McMorrow…that voice gets me every time!
What’s the most treasured possession in your garage?
My Noosa Longboards mini mal…bought it off a friend secondhand for $300, but I’m pretty sure it’s worth over $1000! #nevereverpayretail
Whose second-hand shoes would you most like to walk in?
Preferably @carmengracehamilton’s Gucci loafers…comfort and farshun in a shoe!
What’s your best tip for ‘garage sale etiquette?’
Don’t haggle too hard…especially if it’s your neighbour’s garage sale…don’t want to make it awkward afterwards! Ha.
What’s your top sustainability tip?
Buy nothing new, except underwear! AND use your imagination…on the GST you’ll find plenty of diamonds in the rough that just need some TLC and a good clean…don’t despair, repair!
