The Garage Sale Trail is nearly here! Held each year, the Garage Sale Trail is one BIG WEEKEND of garage sales held across Australia on October 20 and 21. It is like a usual weekend of sales, on steroids! The idea behind it is to help encourage reuse, waste reduction and the reduction of your impact on the planet. Register here if you would like to hold a sale – there is still time
Every garage sale has a unique name and its own sale page that gives you information about who is holding the sale, what they are selling and the details of the event. You can search for sales, items of interest and make your own Trail of favourite sales to check out. We have done that on many occasions and it helps to nagivate the often daunting number of sales on offer. As I am in Adelaide, I have selected a few of my top picks for sales to visit. I am also taking over the Garage Sale Trail Instagram on 9th October, so come on over to follow along my tips on garage sales, and how to get a great bargain, as well as styling with vintage finds.
