Garage Sale Trail
When: 8:00 AM, Saturday 22 October to 5:00 PM, Saturday 22 October
CITY of VINCENT JOINS THE TRAIL!
Australia’s largest community event promoting sustainability, creativity and fun.
Vincent will be participating in this national day of simultaneous garage sales, Saturday 22 October 2016, which aims to divert stuff from landfill, connect communities, stimulate local economies and make sustainability fun and creative! It is free for sellers to register and promote their sale on and through the Garage Sale Trail website.
Perhaps you’d like to de-clutter your life, buy someone else’s treasures, help keep stuff out of landfill, raise funds for a cause, connect with your community, make some pocket money, teach your kids about commerce and sustainability.
To see what happened last year or to find out more, head to the Garage Sale Trail website.
City of Vincent supports Garage Sale Trail, as a fantastic way of promoting recycling and sustainability, bringing together local residents and community groups and having a bit of fun.
Registration is available to individuals, households, local businesses, schools, community groups, makers and creators, cultural institutions and charities.
You can get involved by:
1) Holding your own sale... Start by registering your garage sale on the Garage Sale Trail website so people can find you and your treasures!
2) Visiting other garage sales in your area.... Just log onto the Garage Sale Trail website, enter your postcode and see what sales are in your area. There are some really great features on the website to help you find garage sales. Create a Treasure Trail, an awesome way to save the sales you want to visit and on the day you can print out a map to take with you, or access your Treasure Trail using your mobile device on the day.
