The biggest little garage sale in Oz



ORGANISERS are laying claim to the title Australia's biggest garage sale after hordes of bargain hunters descended on the Clarence Valley WIRES Easter Garage Sale at Yamba.

Secretary of the Clarence Valley WIRES, Michael Byrne, was overwhelmed by the response from the Clarence Valley.

"I think we made $25,000.

"It surpassed all our best expectations. The dentist's chairs and the two pianos brought some good money.

"We'd like to thank the generosity of everyone in the Clarence Valley... they can rest assured the money will be put to good use," said Mr Byrne.

"It's not only the WIRES members that helped, a lot of people came off the street, WIRES couldn't have coped by themselves."

The weekend weather which caused many of the Easter weekend event organisers concern, also upset WIRES.

"The rain nearly gave us a setback because one of our mar- quees got destroyed, it got blown over the fence. Everything underneath it got wet, but we rescued it and battled on," said Mr Bryne. "It's business as normal this week. If you see any injured or distressed wildlife, ring our number - 0500 894 737.
