Bargain hunters will be out in force in Rochester tomorrow for the second annual monster garage sale.By Elaine Cooney
Rochester will host its second annual Monster Garage Sale on Saturday.
Organiser Heather Darbyshire said the aim of the event was to attract outsiders to Rochester and showcase the town’s wonders.
Mrs Darbyshire said more than 70 garage sale sites had registered, while local businesses had agreed to run specials to entice new customers.
‘‘I thought we might only get 20 households this year, but to have over 70 is just amazing,’’ she said.
She said only 10 households were repeats from last year, so plenty of new items were guaranteed.
‘‘There are a number of collector items from antiques to bikes to fishing rods to baby cots and a pianola to 10 fridges at one location,’’ she said.
‘‘We have deceased estates, the angling club, renovators items, cars, motorcycles — you name it, we will have it.
‘‘We have great cafes and local businesses for out-of-towners to experience and as a lover of garage sales I cannot wait to get out and about to explore.’’
