Garage Sale Trail is a grass roots idea that was born in Bondi Beach way back in 2010 as means to encourage reuse, celebrate creativity and bring local people together in a fun & social way. Back then it was part of a local community initiative called Sizzle - Bondi Beach Community Festival - which was led by Co-Founders Andrew Valder and Darryl Nichols alongside a team of amazing creatives and cultural collaborators.
Fast forward to 2017, Garage Sale Trial is now a national movement of reuse-loving, community-minded individuals who come together on one weekend to clear out their pre-loved stuff, find treasure, meet the neighbours and have some fun. It will be happening in communities across Australia on Saturday 21 October and Sunday 22 October 2017.
In 2016, Garage Sale Trail saw 321,000 Aussies get involved at 15,151 garage sales nationally. These sales represented over 2 million items listed for sale/reuse and the average household sale made $379, community groups $650 and schools $1,500.
We believe that big change begins with small actions and that sustainability is best when it's fun and social.
