Garage Sale Trail 2018

Join the movement along with 400,000 Australians by hosting a sale or shopping the Trail.

Save the date – Saturday 20 & Sunday 21, 2018 will see Australia become the world’s biggest Garage Sale, with sales hosted across the nation.

Now in its 8th year, Garage Sale Trail, is a free, council-powered weekend of garage sales that attracts 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!
