People travelled from across the state to pick up a bargain at the Tatura Community House’s Monster Garage Sale on Saturday.

In its sixth year, the event featured more than 70 garage sales at local properties.

About 300 maps were sold and a line formed waiting for the 8am sale.

After a countdown, some breakfast and a coffee, people from as far at St Kilda, Melbourne and upwards into NSW were on their way.

Sales included a number of items, including furniture, books, antiques, tools and clothing.

The town was busy as cars drove around looking for a bargain.

‘‘It’s been a really good crowd and we’ve had great feedback from the stall holders,’’ event organiser Tom Boocock said.

‘‘We’ve also been really lucky with the weather.’’

Tatura Community House would like to thank all volunteers on the day, including Tatura Lions Club, Tatura Rotary Club and Tatura Men’s Shed.

Thanks is also extended to Goulburn Valley Water for their donation of the raffle prizes and to those who worked as baristas on the day.

All funds from the map sales, coffee and barbecue will be used by Tatura Community House to deliver more programs and for general maintenance.

The Monster Garage Sale committee has confirmed the event will continue next year.
