‘I’ll take a vacuum cleaner, the blue jeans and the baby’


Actually the baby (lower right) wasn’t for sale but just about everything else was Saturday as Rockdale hosted its annual Citywide Garage Sale. An estimated 100 garage sales, including this one on Yokley Road, sprang up all over town. Early-risers were out before dawn in search of bargains and some sales lasted well into the afternoon. In additional to individuals, several churches held garage sales and Saturday was also the quarterly Market Day for a number of local businesses. See Pages 4B, 6B and 1D.
