Residents can join a planet-saving adventure by joining the Garage Sale Trail, Australia’s festival of pre-loved stuff, which returns to Wyndham this Spring.
The festival encourages residents to sell, shop and learn about the circular economy.
Garage Sale Trail 2022 will take place over two weekends in November as well as providing expert tutorials in the lead-up to equip residents hosting sales, to make their event a success.
Between 29 October and 5 November, the Wyndham community can be part of the Trail Tutorials, a series of inspiring and educational talks all about sustainable fashion and renovations.
Featuring Barry Du Bois, Annabel Crabb and Craig Reucassel — alongside experts in fashion, home renovations and the circular economy — the sessions are hosted online and free to attend.
Then, over two weekends of garage sales hosted simultaneously around the nation, residents can declutter and sell pre-loved goods or shop the trail and snag a guilt-free bargain locally on 12-13 and 19-20 November.
Council’s Climate Futures and Environment portfolio holder, Cr Robert Szatkowski, said the event was a fun way for residents to connect, make some money and keep good stuff out of landfill.
“Keeping stuff 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,” he said.
“It’s the circular economy in action and it’s something all Wyndham residents can get behind.”
“It’s garage sales made easy with supplied tips, resources, advertising and even touch-free PayPal QR code payments, plus you’ll extend the life of stuff you love, meet the neighbours and make some money.”
“We expect to have more than 100 garage sales happening locally in Wyndham and another 10,000 around the nation. That’s massive!”
