This jam-packed weekend is a great way to make or save money, declutter and meet your neighbours. Last year, residents made a tidy $319 at their garage sale and cleared out their sheds, cupboards and garages in the process.
Households, schools, community groups and local businesses are all invited to host a garage sale or shop the Trail, joining a nationwide movement that sees over 3,500 tonnes of stuff sold and diverted from landfill.
For shoppers, it’s a great opportunity to pick up a bargain (just in time for Christmas), so get those reusable shopping bags ready for the secondhand treasure hunt of your life. With garage sales happening both online and in person, Garage Sale Trail 2020 will bring you new, safe and fun ways to join the Trail and be part of the country’s biggest weekend of money making, planet-saving and treasure-hunting fun.
