Garage Sale Trail returning online for 2020!

Published on 17 November 2020


Garage Sale Trail is returning to the City of Maribyrnong for its sixth consecutive year, with new ways to participate safely online from your home.


Garage Sale Trail, the recovery edition, will be happening online this Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 November 2020, and registrations are now open. This year, in line with current COVID-19 restrictions and physical distancing measures, there are a range of ways you can participate safely online through virtual masterclasses and hosting online sales.


Garage Sale Trail is all about putting second-hand first and finding a new life for our old things – if you have old or unwanted items to sell in your home, it’s the perfect event for you! It’s also a great way for our community to reuse unwanted household items, pick up a second hand bargain and reduce waste going to landfill.


Do you have second-hand items in your home that you’d like to sell? You can host a virtual garage sale and live stream your sale on Facebook or Instagram.


Already decluttered your home or have enough stuff? You can still get involved. There are a series of online masterclasses with some of Australia’s most stylish sustainability experts, giving you the chance to learn how to style and mend second hand items to give them a brand new life.


The event is free and open to everyone – you can fundraise for a cause, make yourself a few extra dollars, or simply declutter your space and free your mind.


Maribyrnong residents hosting a sale or shopping the trail are set to join over 400,000 Australians who will choose to reuse at over 10,000 garage sale trails across the country.


To register, please visit Garage Sale Trail.

Message from the Mayor, Cr Michael Clarke


Garage Sale Trail is a great initiative to help encourage our community to recycle and reuse products, and is a great reminder about why we all need to take responsibility for the waste we generate. I hope residents across the City take part by decluttering and finding some second hand treasures, and the various online programs will ensure the community can take part in a COVIDSafe way.
