Garage Sale Trail Foundation


Member Profile

Garage Sale Trail, the recovery edition, is coming to a town near you on Saturday 21 & Sunday 22 November 2020.

This year’s event is all about helping you make or save money by buying or selling secondhand and with new ways to get involved both online and in the real world, you can take part no matter what restrictions are in place.

Host a garage sale at home, online or attend one of our online masterclasses.You’ll divert valuable resources from landfill and make or save some money in the process.

Thanks to the support of councils across Australia, it’s free to take part and we provide all the tips, support and promotional materials you need to sell big and stay safe on the Trail.

Every garage sale on the Trail 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 secondhand greatness. Likewise, shoppers can search for sales, items of interest and make a Trail of favourite sales to checkout.

Last year over 400,000 Australians got involved at 18,000 garage sales country wide. Together we diverted over 3.2 million kgs of stuff from landfill proving that when we all work together big things happen.

When the whole country starts putting secondhand first, the impacts are huge!
