Early bird bargain hunters were ready to rummage an hour before doors opened at Flegg High School's first jumble sale.
Organisers say the fundraising sale went better than they could ever have imagined raising £650 for school extras.
Event team organiser Diane Spooner said: 'People started arriving an hour before we even opened and there was a queue stretching from our front reception entrance right to the main gate.
'The hall was literally bursting at the seams and our students did amazingly well with crowds of up to three deep trying to grab a bargain.
'We had taken advice from a jumble pro and had priced everything in advance, which made it much easier for our students to be involved in the selling process.'
