To accommodate our land of pre-loved shop-a-holics, for the first time Garage Sale Trail 2021 will take place over three glorious weekends from 6 to 21 November, allowing even more people to sell, shop and learn about the circular economy.
Garage Sale Trail 2020 diverted more than 1.5 million kgs of stuff from landfill across more than 10,000 garage sales around the country. A massive win for the planet, seller’s pockets and ethical shoppers all over Australia.
Introduced for the first time in 2020, Garage Sale Trail’s series of online workshops, Trail Tutorials, were so popular an expanded version of the program returns in 2021.
Weekend One: 6 – 7 November
As we undergo our national awakening of taking responsibility for the planet we live on, this year’s free series of five Trail Tutorials will be dedicated to learning about the circular economy and how we can all get involved.
Garage Sale Trail has gathered together a cast of experts from fashion, styling, finance and sustainability. Join fashion designer Kit Willow, 1 Million Women founder Natalie Issacs, finance expert Molly Benjamin, interior designer Adam Powell, master stitcher and maker Daisy Braid, and Sustainable fashion educator and eco stylist Nina Gbor as they show you how to DIY your wardrobe, dress sustainably, resell fashion as a side hustle and more. They’ll also share practical tips for hosting a garage sale, both online and in person.

Weekends Two & Three: 13 – 14 and 20 – 21 November
Now over two weekends you can sell the stuff you no longer need and snag guilt free bargains!
This year, Australians can again do Garage Sale Trail both online or in the community
(depending on local restrictions). Whether you’re going virtual or IRL, after registering as a seller you’ll receive a bunch of tools and tips to set you up for success!
IRL sellers will receive access to free posters, social media assets to help promote their sale, price tags and an all-important Covid-safe toolkit! While online sellers will get signage and stuff to decorate their homes and their feeds plus tips and tricks from Garage Sale Trail ambassador and online super seller Danielle Goodwin AKA Hawkeye Vintage.
This year Garage Sale Trail is mighty pleased to announce a partnership with PayPal. It’s a partnership made in touch-free payment heaven, using PayPal QR codes, to make transactions super easy in a Covid-19 world. That means touch free payments if you’re selling IRL and secure instant payments on the world wide web for virtual sellers and shoppers.
So aim big! Host a sale on Instagram, Facebook or TikTok. Sell in your live stream, sell in your stories or sell in your feed and spread that circular economy love all over the internet. You never know who might want the Furbie that comes to life in the back of your cupboard at 3am, your purple water wave taffeta formal dress or just the stuff you don’t wear much anymore.
