Australia’s largest sustainability and community festival, the Garage Sale Trail, is back this November and bigger than ever!
Australia’s largest sustainability and community festival, the Garage Sale Trail, is back this November, remodelled for covid and bigger than ever!
Garage Sale Trail 2021 will take place over three glorious weekends from 6 to 21 November. Powered locally by Town of Claremont, the festival encourages residents to sell, shop and learn about the circular economy.
A circular economy means things are kept in use for as long as possible, delivering the highest value it can, for as long as it can and therefore reducing its overall carbon footprint and keeping it out of landfill.
On 6-7 November, residents can join a Trail Tutorial online masterclass and learn about “fashion, flipping and fixing the planet”. Featuring experts from the world of fashion, styling, finance and sustainability, workshops cover tips on how to reduce what we waste through reuse and repair. View the schedule at www.garagesaletrail.com.au/learn
Then, over two big weekends of garage sales, sell pre-loved goods or shop the trail and snag a guilt-free bargain on 13-14 and 20-21 November.
Sellers will receive plenty of resources and tips to make their sale a covid-safe success including touch-free QR code payments enabled by PayPal.
Register a sale or shop the trail at www.garagesaletrail.com.au or at our very own microsite https://www.garagesaletrail.com.au/Town-of-Claremont
