An early start for the mon­ster sale

Bush Telegraph - - Trades And Services Directory - By DAVE MUR­DOCH

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.
