Australia’s biggest garage sale is setting up in Sydney

Olivia Gee

The Garage Sale Trail is one massive weekend where fashionable shopaholics and gifted hoarders present their coolest pre-loved wares to a surge of sustainable shoppers.

On October 20-21, more than 15,000 homes across the country will fling open their roller doors for the mother of all garage sales, with an estimated 2 million items up for grabs.

To find the closest Sydney sale to rummage through, you simply choose a location on the trail map, and start your second-hand spree. You can save favourites as you go and select your route based on location or what each sale is offering. So whether it’s antiques that get you going, homewares that make your heart race, or if you’re in dire need of designer fashion, there’s an amateur front-yard retailer that can hook you up.

Everyone’s invited to this city-wide makeshift mall, with individuals, community groups, families and schools all contributing to the eighth annual addition of the sale. Sellers can keep the weekend’s profits for future sustainable spending, or donate it to a charity of their choosing.
