There were crowds of ladies pouring in to the Memorial Hall on Saturday, all looking for a bargain. The Altrusa Club had collected fabric, wool, notions, craft magazines for quite a while, and must have spent a huge amount of time getting everything priced and packaged for sale.
There were bargains galore, as everything was priced very reasonably indeed. I saw plenty of familiar faces, either helping or getting on with the serious business of shopping. And came home with a few bargains myself.
Bargain hunters everywhere
The proceeds of all this hard work by the Altrusa Club goes towards a number of very good local causes indeed, especially the Arohanui Hospice.
