Bluff Promotions board members are so delighted with the turnout at its Bluff monster garage sale yesterday, they are planning another sale before Christmas.

Bluff Promotions board chairman Roy Horwell said it was a fantastic day and stallholders were ecstatic with sales.

About 60 people lined up outside Bluff Town Hall before it opened for the sale at 10am, Mr Horwell said. "It was such a success I think we will have another before Christmas, perhaps at the end of November," he said.

Bluff publicity-promotions officer Lindsay Beer said about 400 people were in the hall at the height of the sale, about lunchtime."Many people came from Invercargill and surrounding areas to the sale and then enjoyed the remainder of their day in Bluff ..." Mr Beer said.

About 20 stallholders had reserved their place at the sale, he said.

Many had tidied up their homes and were selling crockery, art, jewellery, books and other household items.

Money raised from stallholder fees and a gold-coin donation at the door would be used for Bluff Promotions activities, Mr Beer said.
