Garage Sale Trail

Choose your own planet-saving adventure when the Garage Sale Trail comes to Kingborough this Spring.

The Garage Sale Trail experience happens over two weekends on 11 – 12 and 18 – 19 November 2023.

Garage Sale Trail event is a great way for residents to connect with each other, make some money and stop sending their unwanted things to landfill.

Council is supporting the festival to encourage more people to get involved and learn about the circular economy.

Keeping things in use for as long as we can by buying or selling it at a garage sale makes sense for the planet and makes cents for participants.

All residents need to do is follow the link below to the Garage Sale Trail website and register your garage sale or view the garage sales in your area.

Between 28-29 October, the Kingborough community can also join some Trail Tutorials online.

These are a series of inspiring and educational talks all about sustainable fashion and renovations featuring Barry Du Bois and Veronica Milsom alongside experts in fashion, home renovations and the circular economy.

These sessions are hosted online and free to attend there will be a link to them on the Garage Trail part of Council’s website.

Then, over two weekends 11 – 12 and 18 – 19 November you can be part of simultaneously hosted garage sales around the nation.

Once you’ve signed up to host a garage sale, you get a bunch of free promotional materials, including posters, bunting and letterbox slips, as well as access to tips, tricks and support.

Circular economy & climate action

45% of carbon emissions come from how we make, consume and dispose of stuff.

Extending the life of the stuff we no longer want by selling or shopping at a garage sale is a simple action we can all take to reduce our carbon footprint.

Garage Sale Trail is Australia’s festival of pre-loved stuff.

Featuring the Trail Tutorial online workshop series and two weekends of garage sales, it’s about extending the life of your stuff and unearthing the ultimate pre-loved gem.
