Hannah Kenyon was kept busy all morning at Lockington's town garage sale selling vintage and contemporary chairs.

Hundreds of shoppers converged in Lockington on Saturday for the town’s first Monster Garage Sale.

Organiser John Lead said more than 100 town maps were sold, with proceeds going towards a scout jamboree trip for local girl Khaija Pedler.

Foodworks owners Leanne and Brendan Pentreath filled a corner of the town centre with chairs and shelving, which attracted many bargain hunters.

Mrs Pentreath said the couple brought three truckloads of furniture from liquidation sales in Melbourne.

She said trade at the supermarket was the same as a normal Saturday but staff members were busy all day with extra customers.

Mr Lead said most of the 34 stallholders sold a third of their items and many suggested it should become an annual event.
