'Waste Not' with Alexx Stuart

Garage Sale Trail

Australia’s favourite festival of reuse, the Garage Sale Trail, returns to Lane Cove this November. Happening online and in your community, it’s a month of money making, waste reducing, treasure hunting fun!  

The  6-7 November sees the return of the Trail Tutorials series of online masterclasses. Hosted by some of the biggest names in fashion and sustainability, these free sessions will equip you with new skills to reuse and repair your stuff.  

Host a garage sale or shop the Trail the 13-14 and 20-21 November. This year will see two weekends of garage sales held simultaneously around the nation, with more sales, more bargains, and more planet-saving fun than ever before!

From unearthing the ultimate pre-loved gem at one of 10,000 garage sales to learning how to repair and repurpose your stuff, this November is all about caring for the planet and falling in love with your stuff again.

Garage Sale Trail is proudly partnered locally by Lane Cove Council.
