Lifeline hosts mammoth $2 clothing sale in Tweed Heads

A POCKETFUL of change could score you new outfits for the whole family.

Lifeline is set to impress Tweed's best bargain hunters with its first $2 sale outside of Queensland next weekend.

Whether you're looking for some affordable threads for the little ones or a sharp new outfit for yourself, the Lifeline $2 Clothing Sale will have about five tonnes of ladies', men's and kids' clothing available.

Lifeline Gold Coast business manager Jim Dale said Tweed customers would be the first to browse these items.

"They've come straight from our donation line," Mr Dale said.

With the quality and variety available, the sale makes it difficult to justify overspending on your family's wardrobe.

Mr Dale advised customers to get in quick as the stock was of high quality and the best items were expected to sell quickly.

He said the Tweed sale would be relatively small compared to the scale of Gold Coast events in recent years.

"We started pretty small out the back of Pacific Fair," Mr Dale said.

"The $2 sale has grown exponentially."

He said the sale would be making its debut in Tweed after years of successful sales on the Gold Coast.

"We've run two sales a year on the Gold Coast for quite a few years," Mr Dale said.

"Some of the people had come from Tweed and Byron, so we decided to add an event in Tweed."

Mr Dale said the charity would consider making the sale an annual occurrence in the Tweed, depending on the response received next weekend.

He said the sale would benefit two types of people: those who need affordable clothing, and the bargain-fond fashionistas keen to help someone out.

Mr Dale said the combination of post-Christmas credit card bills and hefty back-to-school expenses could damage more than the wallet, with mental well-being of prime concern.

"Times are tough everywhere," Mr Dale said.

"It's up to people like us to help out where we can."

Mr Dale said Lifeline was still looking for extra volunteers next Sunday.

"We'd love to see more people get involved."
