It was a treasure-seeker's paradise. At least that's what people who attended a big garage sale at Rochester's Public Market said.
On a rainy Sunday at Rochester Public Market, there was still a big crowd.
One to which the old saying, "one person's trash is another man's treasure," holds true.
If someone's looking for it.
"There's something for everybody," said Egidio Carteri of Irondequoit.
It can probably be found.
"I really look for everything," said Diane Giuffre of Irondequoit. "Furniture for the dolls, treasures for my husband."
"We've got some clothes me and my husband haven't worn in a while," said Mandy McKenna of Perinton.
"Anything. I mean some of the stuff, I wouldn't believe somebody would buy but they do," said Giuffre.
"We're moving at the end of the month and a lot of it we didn't want to take with us," said McKenna.
So the McKenna family of Perinton came to sell some stuff at the Public Market's "Greatest Community Garage Sale."
"This is a beautiful setup, nice environment. The people are really friendly," said vendor Stan Marcello. "In fact, I find some of my merchandise here. Some of the gas cans and old tins are available here at a reasonable price."
Talk about junk. Stan Marcello turns it into art and sells it. Like any garage sale, there's always room for dickering.
"I've had several repeat customers. People that keep coming back. I feel like I'm making friends," said McKenna.
That just might be the best deal of all.
"It's just so much fun. It's really close and it's fun. Even if I don't buy anything it's fun to see all my friends, and see all the cool stuff," said Giuffre.
