The BS5 Jumble Sale Trail is a pop-up linear market in Bristol, UK, where local residents buy, sell, and swap their second hand wares.

What makes it Great?

Why it doesn't work?

Since 2015, the BS5 Jumble Sale Trail has provided an opportunity for residents to sell, buy or even swap items they have kept in their houses for too long without using, as well as a chance to walk around the neighborhood and meet their neighbours. How does it work?

Anyone with a BS5 postal code can be part of the Jumble Trail. Residents can use either the front garden or patio, or the front room of their house to set up a pop up shop or art workshop for the day. Every house has a colorful umbrella outside to mark their participation, and an electronic map will help shoppers find participating homes.

The event allows the opportunity to reconnect with the neighbourhood, promote reuse and recycling, walk around the area, discover streets and parks and enjoy a day out.
