Hundreds flock to men’s shed for a bargain
THERE'S garage sales and there's…well…very big shed sales.
The Murwillumbah Community Men's Shed had a garage sale yesterday, but they don't have a garage.
They do have a very big shed and it was full of equipment and tools.
From wrenches through to lathes, there was much to be had for the man or woman looking for a bargain and a means of extending their tool collection.
As many as 200 keen shoppers came through the shed to check out the collection.
"We are pretty happy with the turn-out," said member of the organisation John McDonald.
"It was full-on in the morning, with a few stragglers in the afternoon.
"But we probably made around $1100.
"That's really going to help the shed."
Shed member Doug Johnston celebrated his 95th birthday during the garage sale.
"That was an added bonus to the day," Mr McDonald said.
"It was a very worthwhile effort."
"And as the saying goes, one man's trash is another man's treasure."
