The national program aims to have thousands of simultaneous garage sales around the country on Saturday October 25, including here in Wollongong, to promote sustainability, commerce, community and fun.
“Having a garage sale is a great way to reuse, reduce waste to landfill, engage with your neighbours and community and even raise some extra money for yourself or your group,” Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said.
The Garage Sale Trail is not just open to residents but also community groups, schools, charities and not-for-profit organisations, libraries, businesses and religious or cultural organisations – anyone who has things they want to sell.
Sellers can register and advertise free of charge on the Garage Sale Trail website.
“For buyers, the website lets you search for sales by postcode or if you’re looking something in particular you can search by item, and you can even create your own personalised Treasure Trail map to follow on the day,” Mayor Bradbery said.
