The City of Vincent is supporting Garage Sale Trail, an exciting event happening in our local area on Saturday 26th October 2013. There are around 7.4 million garages in Australia. What if every single one of them had a garage sale on the same day? That’s the idea behind Garage Sale Trail!

Darryl Nichols and Andrew Valder, co-founders of Garage Sale Trail, a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to create positive social and environmental change said the event to date has redistributed approximately one million items from landfill, generated more than $1million in local economic activity, facilitated $3million in fundraising and created hundreds of thousands of neighbourly connections across Australia.

If the 2012 Garage Sale Trail is anything to go by there will be pop up record stores, art shows, bike sales as well as your classic bric-a-brac sales. To see what happened last year of to find out more head to
