Registrations are now open for Yorke Peninsula Council’s Garage Sale Trail event, the perfect opportunity to sell unwanted items, pick up a few bargains, and help the environment.
The Garage Sale Trail 2023 will take place over two weekends, 11-12 and 18-19 November.
Yorke Peninsula Council has again brought the Garage Sale Trail to the region, encouraging residents to sell, shop and learn about recycling and the circular economy.
Mayor Darren Braund said selling or shopping at garage sales is a fun and simple action to reduce our carbon footprint.
“Garage Sale Trail helps neighbours connect, make some money and keep their good stuff out of landfill,” Mr Braund said.
“With free registration, how-to guides, promotional resources and even touch-free PayPal QR code payments, its garage sales made easy for sellers over two big weekends.
“We expect to have more than 70 garage sales happen locally and another 10,000 around the nation.
“More sales means more bargains and there really will be something for everyone: designer fashion, mid-century furniture, cookware, vinyl, kids’ stuff, tools and more.”
Before the sale weekends there will be a series of online talks featuring an all star cast of experts and familiar faces sharing their sustainable living tips that are kind on both planet and pocket.
Featuring presenters Barry du Bois and Veronica Milsom — alongside experts in secondhand selling, styling and the circular economy — the Trail Tutorials are hosted online and are free to attend.
“Shopping aside, the Garage Sale Trail program is free for residents thanks to the support of Yorke Peninsula Council,” Mr Braund said.

ABOUT GARAGE SALE TRAIL
Garage Sale Trail is a not-for-profit social enterprise founded by Sydney mates, Darryl Nichols and Andrew Valder.
It seeks to educate Australians on the importance of reuse, and the need to take individual responsibility for the impact of our consumption habits whilst also building stronger, more connected and more resilient communities.
Garage Sale Trail has grown from a grassroots idea in Bondi Beach where it started in 2010 to being powered by over 80 councils nationally and supported by PayPal and the Victorian state government.
