Reporter/Mike Brown Much of northwest Rockdale turned into a shopper’s paradise as browsers negotiated gridlock to bring home the bargains. Reporter/Mike Brown Eighty-six garage sale proprietors loved hearing all those double clicks as vehicles pulled up curbside at their homes on Saturday.

• Click one. Lock the car doors.

• Click two. Open the trunk to haul off all the goodies you’re about to buy.

With perfect timing, September’s first cool front, lowered temperatures well into the 60s and provided a refreshing north breeze for shoppers.

There were 76 sales listed in Rockdale and another 10 for Thorndale in The Reporter’s garage sale ad last week.

Sales were in all parts of town and there were even a couple at indoor locations.
