One of the classic activities to do on a weekend is visit a garage sale, and there seems to be one always on in and around the suburbs.
A garage sale is the best place to bargain your way to a great deal, and unlike retail stores or supermarkets, do not have large crowds or the hubbub. Most garage sales can be located by signs around the neighborhood or at the location itself, and are usually posted a few days or even a week before the actual garage sale takes place. Furniture, kitchenware, clothing, footwear, outdoor items, antiques, bric-a-brac and much more can be found at any garage sale.
Egaragesales.com.au is Australia's biggest garage sales website. Basically, if you are looking for a garage sale around your neighborhood or locality and haven't found one, this is the website to visit. The website allows you to view upcoming garage sales in your suburb or garage sales that are being currently held. It is also a place where you can place your advertisement if you wish to have a garage sale of your own.
If you wish to be kept in the loop about garage sales in your area, then whatgaragesale.com.au is one of the ways you can be kept up to date. One of the features of the website is 'Garage Sale Mail', which users can sign up to and receive updates about garage sales (according to users' specific preferences), and is also a free service. As featured on TV, the website is the bug for setting up or visiting a garage sale in Brisbane.
