Know how to spot a bargain? You've got over 8,000 garage sales to take your pick from
Garage Sale Trail is Australia's biggest garage sale and reuse event. Local councils throughout the country support mini markets which are held throughout Sydney. It’s about sustainability and community, a chance to clear your clutter, meet the neighbours and make new friends close to home.
Pick up a rare find – whether that be clothing, kitchenware, musical instruments and more – you never know what someone has been hiding in their house. You can plan your trail for the day by searching the interactive map set on the website. It will show you every single garage sale in your area. But don’t limit yourself to your own suburb, plan a trip to somewhere you’ve been meaning to check out, or even to a suburb that just has your kind of vibe.
If you've been guilty of hoarding, you can sell off your goods and usher in a new minimalist era to your home, (or just empty the top shelf in that cupboard you’ve been stuffing things into for years). When you register your sale you can upload info on what you’re selling, and why (some people like to raise funds for a charity).
Your sale will be added as a pin to a searchable and interactive national map. You can also download posters and flyers to help promote your sale around the neighbourhood. If you don’t want to go it alone you can always join up with a few people in your street and make it a team effort.
