Declutter, meet the neighbours at Garage Sale Trail

Garage Sale Trail coming soon.
Garage Sale Trail coming soon.

It’s one of the most anticipated weekends of the year. There is only one month to go until the weekend extravaganza that is the Garage Sale Trail. Registrations are being called for this fantastic weekend, and locals need to get in quickly.

Garage Sale Trail, is a free, fun and social way to declutter, meet the neighbours and make a little pocket money. The event is made possible by Snowy Monaro Regional Council and takes place on Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22. A time where neighbours and communities come together to embrace all things recycled and reused.

It’s Australia’s biggest weekend of reuse and community engagement with more than 10,000 garage sales, 2 million items listed for sale and 350,000 sellers and shoppers taking part across the nation.

Snowy Monaro households, community groups and businesses are being encouraged to register for this great event now. Last year garage sales were held from Cooma to Jindabyne, Berridale to Nimmitabel, and even in Shannons Flat.

The event is about encouraging people to reuse the items they no longer want and get to know to their local community better. We all know recycling is great but reusing items no longer needed is even better.

Getting involved isn't just good for the planet. On average households involved make $312 on the day and meet 44 new people locally.

Anyone can get involved and registration is free and registered sellers get a dedicated sale listing on the national website as well as access tips, tricks and promotional materials to ensure your sale is a success

Garage Sale Trail is happening on Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22. You can choose to host your sale on one of these days or do both!
