From a modest start to what is now a heavily anticipated national program, the Garage Sale Trail returns to Australia each October to encourage local communities to engage with and host good ol’ fashioned garage sales, and we aren’t just talking dusty old books and fur coats. On October 22nd, registered garage sales across the country will form one large, synchronised treasure hunt with people selling off their wares – big or small – or offering up some unconventional goods, like adoptable kittens, or multi-million dollar yachts (someone has legit registered the huge yacht that was used in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby for sale this year)....
