There was a little bit of something for everyone in the Wylie Mitchell hall on Saturday, as the Estevan Antique Auto Club hosted their 21st annual spring garage sale and flea market.

Ann Zelter sits behind her table arrayed with a variety of items.

"The building was sold out, we had 75 tables and a good crowd. They've been beating the door down to get in. It's one of our better ones," expressed organizer Gord Stevenson.

Cliff Cull came down from Weyburn to display his pop can creations.

With an average crowd of 500-600, and tables priced at $20 each, simple math puts the proceeds at around $1,500. That doesn't even include the small entry fee per person at the door. It's a total that Stevenson was confident they would meet.

The funds raised will appropriated towards the Club's cruise nights and car shows, as well as a charity of choice. This year it's the Salvation Army Food Bank. Worth noting is the fact that the Club already recently made a $3,000 donation towards the Food Bank with the proceeds from their fall garage sale.

"It's a varied assortment of stuff. If you've never been to one, just come out and have a good snoop. It brings back a lot of memories, things that you had when you were a kid," he concluded.
