Now a weekend of Garage Sales

Jul 14, 2017 | Front Page Feature, News

Saturday 21 & Sunday 22 October 2017

Garage Sale Trail is Australia’s big weekend of GOOD STUFF with over 15,000 garage sales and stalls happening around the country on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October 2017.

Now in its seventh year, Garage Sale Trail, is a free, council-powered weekend of garage sales that attracts over 300,000 bargain-loving shoppers nationally.  With over 2 million pre-loved treasures expected to be up for sale in the streets, lanes and parks of Australia, it’s our national day of haggling.

The day exists to do more than help people sell their unwanted stuff and hone the skills of bargain hunters. Garage Sale Trail exists to make a difference. The simple act of buying and selling at a garage sale does a whole lot of ‘good stuff’ beyond making extra cash and finding treasure. It’s a simple way to bring communities together, reuse stuff and rethink the idea of what waste really is… while having an excuse to get dressed up, bake and barbecue.

What started as an idea in Bondi Beach has now grown to a national weekend. Last year the Garage Sale Trail was adopted by local councils in the UK and the Aussie institution that is the garage sale was embraced by our British cousins. Jolly good show!

Get on to a good thing, put Saturday 21 – Sunday 22 October 2017 in your calendar and register now, it’s completely FREE with thanks to the councils of Australia who make it happen.
