This year it’s ‘Garage Sale Trail, the Covid-19 Recovery Edition.’ Dedicated to helping you make or save some money – just in time for Christmas!

This year the country’s biggest weekend of garage sales is happening on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 November 2020 and with new ways to get involved both online and in the real world, you can take part no matter what restrictions are in place. You’ll divert valuable resources from landfill and make some money in the process.

If you, like us, have been busy using all this stay at home time to declutter, what better year could there be to have a garage sale online or in your community? You decide what you do with the proceeds of your garage sale and you get heaps of support to be successful and stay safe on the Trail too.

Registrations to host a sale open in mid September. It’s free and anyone can do it, whether you’re a household, community group, a whole street, school or even a local business.

You get your own sale listing or webpage and promotional materials to help make your garage sale a success.
