Garage Sale Trail set to Unearth Pre-loved Treasures

Archived 15 Dec 2019 - Posted: 16 Oct 2019
Garage Sale Trail is happening right across Australia on Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 October 2019. It’s a big weekend encouraging us to put secondhand first and minimise our impact on the planet.

The award-winning sustainability community event was a fun and social way to promote reuse, reduce waste to landfill and enable fundraising.

Garage Sale Trail happens with the support of Local Council partners across the country and nearly 400,000 bargain hunting, reuse loving Australians shopping and selling at more than 18,000 garage sale events Australia-wide.

Last year over 3 million kilograms of pre-loved items were sold, from kids toys to clothes, furniture and antique tea sets. You name it, you can find it on the Trail.

Every garage sale has a unique style and gets a sale page that provides clues to who's involved, what’s on offer and anything else that’s going down. It’s like a treasure map to second hand greatness. Likewise, shoppers can search for sales, items of interest and make your own Trail of favourite sales to checkout. It's not too late to register your sale.

Shoppers can see what is up for sale and plan their trail at the Garage Sale Trail website.

Happy shopping!
