Australia’s biggest sustainability and community event – the Garage Sale Trail – is back over two big weekends this November.
Garage Sale Trail is set to help Australians sell their pre-loved things, uncover unexpected finds from their neighbours at epic 1980s prices, and bring the circular economy to life.
Over 300,000 Australians will sell or shop at more than 10,000 garage sales over two weekends in November, setting free millions of pre-loved items to be bought and sold. This also saves an estimated 1.5 million kilograms of pre-loved goodies from landfills.
The Trail takes place over the following weekends: 12th and 13th November and 19th and 20th November. Registration is free for sellers. Sellers also receive access to a webpage to list what they are selling and give their sale a name.
Sellers also receive a handy set of promotional tools to promote their garage sale, including posters, price tags, and of course, COVID-safety kits. Web listings will appear on the Garage Sale Trail website, and will reach an epic amount of thrift-loving eyeballs.
This year the Trail continues its partnership with PayPal to enable safe cashless payments in person and online. By downloading the PayPal app, shoppers with a PayPal account can scan a seller’s PayPal QR code to make touch-free payments in person or click a seller’s PayPal.Me link for online sales. No special equipment is needed, and your credit card numbers and payment info are protected.
Alongside PayPal, Garage Sale Trail is supported by 100 local governments around Australia, the NSW EPA and fashion resale partner Poshmark. This project is a NSW Environment Protection Authority Waste and Sustainable Materials Strategy initiative funded from the waste levy.
Registrations are now open. Find out more here.
