The Garage Sale Trail is hitting Perth this October and you won't want to miss it.

If you're a tragic for a good garage sale and love picking up a bargain buy on pre-loved goods, then what I'm about to announce will pretty much be your mecca. This October, garages and driveways all around Australia will be filled with a variety of goods for sale. Get involved in all the action of a national event, with a trail of garage sales popping all over the country for one day only - Saturday 26th October.

Why pay full price at the shops for something new when you can get something almost new for half the price, or better yet - something gorgeously retro they just don't make anymore? And while you're there I'm sure you can pick yourself up some great homemade goods, too. It's about sustainability, community and making a bit of dosh out of all those odds and ends you've got lying around. Not to mention some old school social networking in your neighbourhood.
