Garage Sale Trail | 21 & 22 November 2020

Garage Sale Trail

When: 21 & 22 November 2020

Where: City-wide

Cost: Free

Event details:

This jam-packed weekend of garage sales is a great way to declutter, fundraise and meet your neighbours. In last year's Garage Sale Trail, 750 stalls and sales were registered in the ACT alone.

Households, schools, community groups and local businesses are invited to host a covid-safe sale or virtual sale, or shop the Trail, joining over 400,000 Australians in this nationwide movement that’s all about putting secondhand first.

For shoppers, Garage Sale Trail is a great opportunity to pick up a bargain and find something unique, all whilst doing your bit for the environment. It’s guilt free retail therapy!

Reducing the number of purchases we make and choosing secondhand are just two great ways we can all do our bit, stay stylish and save money. Learn how to farewell fast fashion forever by joining one of the free online Trail Tutorials hosted by some of Australia’s brightest, best and most stylish.
