Get your school on the Trail

Australia's favourite festival of pre-loved stuff, the Garage Sale Trail, returns online and in the community this November.

Schools can use the national event to fundraise and get students involved in a fun and educational waste reduction activity.

Last year almost $1 million was raised for schools, community groups and charities nationally, with the average school making over $1,500 in one day.

WHY GET INVOLVED?

  • Fundraise for your school and make over $1,500 on one day.
  • Engage the school community in a fun reuse initiative.
  • Promote your school locally.

WHAT'S INVOLVED?

Restrictions permitting, host a garage sale at your school on the weekend of 13/14 or 20/21 November 2021. It could be a market, car boot sale or simple white elephant stall in the playground. Invite students and parents to donate unwanted items that you sell or get them to host their own stalls.

If you can't host a sale in person, you might like to take the fun online for a virtual garage sale instead.

We provide you with promotional support, free signage and a comprehensive group sale guide to help you sell big and stay covid-safe on the Trail.
