Tatura res­i­dents are get­ting ready to sort through those un­used items and of­fer them up for sale to bar­gain hunters be­cause it’s Monster Garage Sale time.

Tatura Community House man­ager Leeane But­ton said they were once again or­gan­is­ing the an­nual town garage sale to be held on Satur­day, May 6, this year.

‘‘The event will show­case the town and aims to at­tract peo­ple from the sur­round­ing ar­eas, as well as get­ting the lo­cals in­volved in the day’s Monster Garage Sale,’’ Ms But­ton said.

‘‘Local busi­nesses will wel­come our vis­i­tors as well, so come and see what Tatura has to of­fer.’’

With last year’s sale boast­ing a whop­ping more than 60 sites, Ms But­ton en­cour­aged peo­ple to come along as ei­ther par­tic­i­pants or as wel­come vis­i­tors.

‘‘Tatura res­i­dents can reg­is­ter their garage sale at the Tatura Community House for a $20 fee and re­ceive their in­for­ma­tion packs,’’ she said.

‘‘All ad­ver­tis­ing will be done for them, via news­pa­per ad­ver­tise­ments, ra­dio an­nounce­ments, posters, fly­ers and large ban­ners on dis­play in Tatura and at the Shep­par­ton/Mooroopna en­trances.

‘‘We do all the or­gan­is­ing for you.’’

Ms But­ton said those who did not wish to hold a garage sale could this year book a car boot sale spot on the Community House’s front lawn for the re­duced cost of $10.

‘‘If you don’t want a garage sale, but would like to re­serve a space on the front lawn to sell your items, please reg­is­ter at the Community House,’’ she said.
