GARAGE SALE TRAIL: TOMORROW IS AUSTRALIA’S BIG DAY OF GOOD STUFF

Garage Sale Trail is Australia’s big day of GOOD STUFF with over 10,000 garage sales happening around the country on Saturday 22 October 2016. Freo as you can see from map below has lots happening.
Now in its sixth year, Garage Sale Trail, is a free, council-powered day of garage sales that attracts over 300 000  bargain-loving shoppers  nationally.  With over 2 million pre-loved treasures expected to be up for sale for many its Australia’s national day of haggling.

The day exists to do more than help people sell  their unwanted stuff and hone the skills of bargain hunters. 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 and rethink the idea of what waste really is… while having an excuse to get dressed up, bake and barbeque.

The magic happens  with funny sale names, hand-made signs and incentives to lure people to garage sales that would make Richard Branson proud. Not to mention what gets listed for sale…

What started as an idea in one suburb has now grown to a national day. 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…

Get on to a good thing, put Saturday 22 October 2016 in your calendar and register now, it’s completely FREE with thanks to the councils of Australia who make it happen.
