This year’s Moreton Bay Garage Sale Trail is the perfect time to snag a preloved bargain in the ultimate guilt-free shopping spree that’s kind to the planet and your pocket.   

Mayor Peter Flannery encouraged people to get behind the garage sales and sustainable shopping to go green as we grow.  

“As the cost of living increases, the Garage Sale Trail is a great way to find affordable goods or make some extra cash.” 

“Selling stuff you no longer need reduces the amount of waste headed to landfill, so this is a good opportunity to do your bit for the environment.”   

“Set your reminders for 11-12 and 18-19 of November for two big weekends of sustainable shopping, or you can follow our Facebook page to stay updated.”

“We are encouraging households, streets, schools and community groups across Moreton Bay to get involved and host a garage sale. It’s a good chance to get out there and meet your neighbours whilst you hunt for a bargain.”

“In the lead up to the trail weekends, there will be free online masterclasses where you can learn from some of the most stylish Australians about how to style, mend and shop preloved items. This can minimise your waste as you farewell fast fashion and save money.”

“Currently, we have 36 sales registered, which is projected to save many preloved second-hand household items from becoming waste. Fast fashion is one of the biggest contributors to landfill, so it’s great that past garage sales indicated that 17% of the trail items are clothes and fashion accessories.”
