After last years massive national event, the Garage Sale Trail returns on May 5th with a bigger focus on community and sustainability. This year, vendors from households, local businesses, cultural institutions, charities, schools, libraries and community groups across Sydney will drop their junk on the street hoping that people like you find it useful.Even the Royal Botanic Gardens are in on the act, hosting a massive second-hand art and book sale.
How can you get involved?
- TrueLocal (the clever cats) have partnered with Garage Sale Trail to supply a full listing of all participating sales. Drop m.truelocal.com.au into your mobile browser to access the map on May 5.
- Have your own sale. Visit Garage Sale Trail online, register your sale and get your own pin on the live trail map. You can even highlight the type of things you're selling (clothes, knick-knacks, furniture etc) so punters know to look you up on the day.
- Plan your route by visiting garagesaletrail.com.au - there's garage sales planned all over Sydney, so you're not limited to a few surly hipsters in Surry Hills trying to flog you something they bought for 10 cents in Blacktown.
