In Missoula, we love us some garage sales, yard sales and flea markets. So it's no surprise that the world's largest garage sale would be held right here in Zootown.

The "World's Largest Garage Sale" will be held on Saturday, April 1st from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the lower levels of the U of M covered parking garage. The parking garage is just off Campus Drive, next to the Mansfield Library.

The sale will offer an opportunity to recycle furniture, house wares, clothes and anything that might have value to community residents or to students who are trying to furnish new apartments.

The semi-annual garage sale is a fundraiser for the UM Advocates, a campus service organization. The organization's more than 75 members provide volunteer labor for many campus functions, including Homecoming and new-student orientation. Previous sales, which are held every Spring and Fall, have attracted almost 100 sellers and thousands of shoppers. Don't miss this chance to turn unwanted items into cash!

Vendors can register online or call 243-5874 for more info.
