This weekend (Oct 20th and 21st) garages, front yards, back yards, sheds and balconies all across Australia will play host to the annual Garage Sale Trail. Both Saturday and Sunday, Aussies everywhere will be selling their unwanted goodies in an effort to reduce, reuse, recycle and keep stuff out of landfill. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that finding fashion bargains at garage sales is by far one of my favourite ways to spend a Saturday morning.
Below are my top picks for the weekend, the essential “must visit” list. These are the garage sales I’ll most likely be stopping by! To find Garage Sales near you, click here.
