Id like to take this opportunity to all wish my members, and to our first time visitors, a very merry christmas and a safe and happy new year.

Wow, this year certainly saw some changes for Not only have we broken all traffic records for the website, but we've also implemented some fantastic new features, such as our garage sale checklist, flyers and garage sale signs to the website. To give our users an idea of just how popular we are becoming, is listed first in all major search engines and now attracts over 45,000 unique visitors a month, with many return visitors as well as repeat advertisers. That equates on some days at over 1,500 visitors! Not bad exposure considering you can advertise for as little as just $10 bucks.

In terms of statistics egaragesales had over 1,560 garage sale ads placed, and 1,878 new members join in 2008, with our biggest week having over 82 garage sale advertisements listed and 2,100 visitors in the one day! Not bad considering that back in 2004 when we first started, we had just over 60 members! We now have 5,881 registered members from all parts of Australia!

I must say I am really pleased to provide this service to the garage sale community of Australia and must thank all of you for your support and encouragement. Without this, it just wouldnt be as much fun! I do my best to ensure a high quality service to all of my members and to my visitors.

Again as already said, Id like to wish everyone a very merry christmas and a happy new year. I do hope that where-ever you all intend on spending your break whether it be staying at home with family, or perhaps going away on leave, that you all enjoy it safely and I look forward to your continued support in 2009.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
