PLENTY of people are expected to be following a trail around Ballina Shire this Saturday, May 5, to find hidden treasures.

It's Garage Sale Trail time, and more than 110 sales have been registered in the 2478 postcode, as well as others around Alstonville.

The Garage Sale Trail is a national initiative to encourage reuse and recycling.

For bargain and treasure hunters following the trail, it is not so much a case of what you will find but what you won't find.

The ladies of the Caffe Club have lots of variety at their garage sale.

The group of a dozen or so women who meet socially, with their nickname stemming from the motto "coffee and friendship for everyone", is holding a sale at 6 Howard Cres, West Ballina, from 8am to 1pm.

The group raises money for charities by each member donating cash at their social events. Once $500 is in the kitty, it is given away.

The Caffe Club will donate the proceeds of Saturday's sale to Ballina-based Northern Rivers Animal Services (NRAS), a not-for-profit organisation that cares for abandoned cats and dogs.

NRAS also is holding a sale at its River St op shop, located opposite Domino's.

At Alstonville, the Alstonville Plateau Historical Society will be selling off surplus donated items at Crawford House Museum from 10am to 2pm.

For the full listing, see the Garage Sale Trail website.
