The annual Garage Sale Trail event is back over two weekends in November! Mark your calendar for 11-12 and 18-19 November 2023.

This annual event encourages households, schools, and community groups across the nation to host a garage sale simultaneously.  For sellers, it’s garage sales made easy. With a free listing on the national map, sale tips, promotional resources and touch-free PayPal QR code payments, Garage Sale Trail does the heavy lifting so you can focus on selling your stuff. For shoppers, it’s Australia’s biggest pre-loved treasure hunt with three million items up for grabs at 10,000 garage sales nationally. From acid wash denim to leg warmers, vintage vinyl, Rubik’s cubes and even the odd banana phone, you’ll find all sorts of epic stuff at 80s prices over two huge Garage Sale Trail sale weekends.

It’s the circular economy in action, dedicated to helping you declutter, make, or save some money and extend the life of your stuff.  Register to participate in this FREE event at www.garagesaletrail.com.au
