Garage Sale Trail - November
It's a big weekend encouraging us to put secondhand first and minimise our impact on the planet. Every garage sale has a unique style and gets a sale page that provides clues to who's involved, what's on offer and anything else that's going down. It's like a treasure map to second hand greatness. Likewise, shoppers can search for sales, items of interest and make your own Trail of favourite sales to checkout. Check www.garagesaletrail.com.au for all the details.
