Australia’s largest sustainability and community festival, the Garage Sale Trail, is back this November, remodelled for covid and bigger than ever!

To accommodate our land of pre-loved shop-a-holics, Garage Sale Trail 2021 will take place online or in the community (restrictions allowing) over three glorious weekends from 6 to 21 November. Powered locally by Esperance and surrounding towns, the festival encourages residents to sell, shop and learn about the circular economy.

On 6-7 November, residents can join a Trail Tutorial online masterclass and learn about “fashion, flipping and fixing the planet”. Featuring experts from the world of fashion, styling, finance and sustainability, workshops cover tips on how to reduce what we waste through reuse and repair. View the schedule at www.garagesaletrail.com.au/learn

Then, over two big weekends of garage sales, sell pre-loved goods or shop the trail and snag a guilt-free bargain either online or covid-safely in the community (restrictions permitting) on 13-14 and 20-21 November.

Whether hosting a sale virtually or in-person, sellers receive a bunch of resources and tips to make their sale a covid-safe success including touch-free QR code payments enabled by PayPal.

Register today your sale or shop the trail at https://www.garagesaletrail.com.au/Shire-of-Esperance

Garage Sale Trail is made possible locally by the Shire of Esperance.


TRAIL TUTORIALS

Garage Sale Trail’s series of online workshops, the Trail Tutorials, were so popular last year an expanded version of the program returns on 6-7 November 2021.

As we undergo our national awakening of taking responsibility for the planet we live on, this year’s free series of six Trail Tutorials will be dedicated to learning about the circular economy and how we can all get involved.

Garage Sale Trail has gathered together a team of expert presenters from the worlds of fashion, styling, finance and sustainability. Join fashion designer Kit Willow, 1 Million Women founder Natalie Issacs, finance expert Molly Benjamin, interior designer Adam Powell, master stitcher and maker Daisy Braid, and sustainable fashion educator and eco stylist Nina Gbor as they show you how to DIY your wardrobe, dress sustainably, resell fashion as a side hustle and more. They’ll also share practical tips for hosting a garage sale, both online and in person.

HOST A SALE OR SHOP THE TRAIL – ONLINE OR IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Now over two weekends (13-14 and 20-21 November) you can sell the stuff you no longer need and snag guilt-free bargains!

This year, locals can again do Garage Sale Trail either online or here in Esperance. Whether you’re going virtual or in-person, after registering as a seller you’ll receive a bunch of tools and tips to set you up for success!

In-person sellers will receive access to free posters, social media assets to help promote their sale, price tags and an all-important covid-safe toolkit. Online sellers will get signage and stuff to decorate their homes and their feeds plus tips and tricks from Garage Sale Trail ambassador and online superseller Danielle Goodwin of Hawkeye Vintage.

This year Garage Sale Trail is mighty pleased to announce a partnership with PayPal. It’s a partnership made in touch-free payment heaven, using PayPal QR codes to make transactions super easy in a covid-19 world. That means touch-free payments if you’re selling IRL and secure, instant payments on the world-wide web for virtual sellers and shoppers.

So aim big! Host a sale on Instagram, Facebook or Tik Tok. Sell in your live stream, sell in your stories or sell in your feed and spread that circular economy love all over the internet. You never know who might want the Furbie that comes to life in the back of your cupboard at 3am, your purple water wave taffeta formal dress or just the stuff you don’t wear much anymore.
