2012 Garage Sale Trail Goes High Tech! Ambassador Marnie Skillings Talks Recycled Fashion and Sustainability

The Garage Sale Trail Is On Today!

To celebrate today's Garage Sale Trail event, we thought we'd give you the low-down on this eco-minded recycled fashion fest, as suggested to us by Tluxe designer Rebecca Powell. Did you partake in the Garage Sale Trail last year? No? Well, 2012 looks to be even bigger and better — and it's on right now! The sustainable shopping initiative started as a Bondi-based event, but this recycled fashion festival is now Australia's biggest community-based market place. Marnie Skillings is one of the GST's ambassadors this year, and the designer is urging fashionable types to get involved. "This programme is great for the wider fashion community. For those who want to clear out their wardrobe, for brands who want to hold sample sales and to aspiring fashion designers and makers and creators who can use this as a way of showcasing their talents...It’s also the such a great way to nab a great find.” 2012 sees the Garage Sale Trail getting an e-update thanks to some high-tech partnerships. You'll be able to navigate your way around your locally listed sales in a flash via True Local, then pay cash-free with the help of PayPal. Happy bargain hunting...
