Spring cleaning, summer buying

Hank and Marcia Leffingwell take a break during Saturday's Community Wide Garage Sale. The event was sponsored by Carter County Chamber of Commerce.

When Hank Leffingwell woke up Saturday morning, he didn't think he would be up against a swarm. "They hit us like a bunch of piranhas," he said.

The Community Wide Garage Sale was a quick success for the Leffingwells, who say they were able to sell their big ticket items right away.

Most sellers were pleased with the turnout and a couple of the more rural sellers were surprised at the amount of people they'd had. A couple sellers were disappointed in the foot traffic, especially compared to past years when the Bump-N-Run was scheduled for the same day and attracted out-of-town buyers.
