A popular garage sale concept has inspired more than 70 people to register in Rochester.ELAINE COONEY November 27, 2012 4:34am
Rochester Chamber of Commerce is inviting everyone to visit a Monster Garage Sale on December 8.
More than 70 sites will sell something for everyone, from baby clothes and toys, to bikes, windows, antiques, crockery, couches, tools, fishing gear and more.
Monster Garage Sale organiser Alan Darbyshire said he was amazed with the response.
‘‘I thought we might get 20 households interested, but to have over 70 is just amazing,’’ he said.
Mr Darbyshire said the concept was popular in the USA so the chamber decided to try it out in Rochester.
‘‘We are in a great location here in Rochester,’’ he said.
‘‘The town is a fabulous community to live and work in and we want to invite people to come experience our town through the many garage sales offered.’’
The sale will run from 8am to 3pm with a map available at the Rochester newsagent from 7am Saturday.
‘‘We have great cafes and local businesses for out-of-towners to experience, but as a lover of garage sales I cannot wait to get out and about to explore.’’
