An early start for the monster sale
Woodville Lions picked a fine but cold day to run their second monster garage sale on Saturday May 26 at the Woodville Rugby Club Rooms.
Last year having customers queuing up at 8am two hours before the sale opened encouraged the organisers to set an 8am start this year, but this time there were people lined up at 6.30am and it was only 1 degree outside!
After a busy couple of hours a lot of the furniture on offer had gone, including an impressive line of chairs but there was still plenty of variety for customers who came midmorning.
There were heaters donated by St James’ Church, microwaves, juicers, coffee makers, bookcases, cupboards, glassware, crockery, clothing, tools, beds and mattresses — all at giveaway prices.
Lions are happy with the total raised of around $4000 and President Stuart Sinclair says he is most grateful to all the locals Tararua-wide who donated goods for sale.
The Monster Garage sale was introduced to replace earnings from the now defunct Track ‘n’ Tunnel walk event.
WOODVILLE’S Rugby Club Rooms had a wide variety of tableware and appliances at bargain prices in the Lions’ Monster Garage Sale May 26.
