According to a recent Newspoll survey commissioned by Garage Sale Trail, two thirds of Aussies aged 18-64 say they have “too much stuff at home and not enough space for it all”. The survey also found that 86% of Australians have at some point either “bought things they end up not using or hardly using at all” (87%) and “bought things on impulse and then regret it”. Ouch!
On Sunday 25 October 2014, it is expected that upwards of 350,000 Australians will take part in the 4th annual Garage Sale Trail. With the support of over 120 councils, this is an opportunity to see millions of pre-loved items sold across the country, generating an average income of $323 per seller, and a chance to connect local sellers and buyers in local neighbourhoods.
