5th May 2012: Garage Sale Trail

Ever held a garage sale before? Imagine holding one with your whole street or your entire neighbourhood! The Sutherland Shire Council is joining a new community project on Saturday May 5th at Cronulla, a Garage Sale Trail! Businesses are also invited to get involved by booking a table in the Mall and selling second hand items – visit Cronulla Beach CBD Management for more details.

Why a Garage Sale Trail? It’s all about reducing waste going to landfill and bringing the community together.

About Garage Sale Trail? The Garage Sale Trail is about sustainability, community & creativity, allowing exchange of assets, resources and money super locally, almost within your own backyard (literally!) but with national scale. Basically it is a platform for anyone who wants to make money or raise money by connecting with their community. It’s about “using the Internet to get people off the Internet”

Last year’s results:

  • 72,586 items were redistributed across Australia (average of 45 items per garage sale)
  • Average amount made per sale day was $331
  • Average number of new neighbourhood connections made per garage sale was 6
  • Watch this video to see what went down at the 1st Garage Sale Trail in April
