Registrations are now open for the Bayside Garage Sale Trail to be held on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October, 2019. Register now to be one of the first 1250 sellers and receive a FREE printed seller pack of posters, letterbox slips, price tags and bunting to use at your garage sale. All sellers can also download digital versions of all the promotion materials from the Garage Sale Trail website to help make your sale a success.
De-clutter your home, help your friends and neighbours choose to reuse, and stop your unwanted items going to landfill. Get together with your neighbours and plan a street sale. Or talk to your children’s school or community group and hold a stall to fundraise.
