Garage Sale Trail Melbourne

Garage Sale Trail Melbourne


Posted 2014-10-07 by Monique Thorpe follow
Imagine a day that everyone across Australia who was planning on hosting a garage sale came together to create one big garage sale trail that circled the country. Well it's happening. The date is October 25 2014 so be sure to start saving your pennies and keep the date free!

Co-founders of the Garage Sale Trail Andrew Valder and Darryl Nichols started three years ago with an idea to connect communities and promote sustainable reuse of household items. This small idea has now grown to be one of the biggest community and sustainability event in Australia today. The day has some big partners, including City of Sydney, City of Melbourne and Sustainability Victoria. The day also has ambassador Josh Pyke singing it's praises. The Australian musician has joined up to spread the word of what is sure to be Australia's biggest garage sale.

It maybe because of this, of just because it's a winning idea, that the day has rained so much traction. A quick search on the site shows that within a 5km radius of the Melbourne CBD, there are 53 garage sales registered. If we increase this to 20km to take in your local area, there are over melbourne&latlon=-37.814107%2C144.96327999999994&suburb=Melbourne&postcode=&state=Victoria&keywords=&category=All&distance=5&type=sale&items_per_page=10 300 garage sales registered !

With so many to choose from, the site allows you to build a Treasure Trail, of your favorite garage sales. This means you don't have to waste any time on the day and can get around quickly to snap up the best bargains.

The garage sales registered are a mixture of private and group, some schools, local clubs or creative orgs, selling a mixture of household items, local designer crafts and samples and seconds. Some are also more 'market-style' group garage sales, like the #item_38361 ">Frankie and Friends sale in Brunswick, which will house local artists stalls, party supplies, pop plants, veggies/flower seeding's, plus donuts and the taco truck will keep you nourished.

There is literally something for everyone at the Garage Sale Trail!
