Published on 24 September 2020
- Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail is on again on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 November 2020.
Community groups and individuals can make money and save money by selling and shopping with a stack of COVID-19 safety measures in place, including for the first time ever virtual garage sales
Snowy Valleys Council is proud to be part of Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail to be held on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 November 2020.
Mayor James Hayes says “We are pleased to be involved with the initiative again this year and encourage everyone in the community to register – with many of us staying local this is an excellent opportunity to declutter and rehome those things we don’t need anymore”.
Registrations are free for households, schools, community groups and anyone else who wants to join communities in their neighbourhood and/or online for one gigantic weekend of money making, planet saving fun.
A multi-award-winning community and sustainability event, Garage Sale Trail is part of Snowy Valleys Council’s commitment to reducing landfill and supporting residents to reuse and reduce waste at home.
The program is powered by over 115 councils across Australia, dedicated to helping their communities on the road to economic recovery by making and saving money through the sale of secondhand goods. And for the first time ever, sellers can also set up virtual garage sales as an alternative to garage sales in local neighbourhoods.
For the first time ever, Australians can participate in Garage Sale Trail online as well as face to face. This online element will not only work to keep people safe during the pandemic but also assist sellers in finding the perfect match for their pre-loved items – no matter their location.
For those hosting or shopping at physical sales, Garage Sale Trail will provide guidelines to ensure COVID-19 restrictions and safety precautions are in place. You’ll also receive tips and tricks, as well as marketing material to help achieve the best result from your sale.
To host a sale or shop the Trail you can register for free at garagesaletrail.com.au/SVC.
