Books, clothes, games and toys were among the items up for grabs today when the village of Buxton put its worldly wares on the market through a huge open air sale.
Residents came together to open up their gardens and garages for the one day sale and offer their unwanted goods to neighbours and visiting customers.
And the warm weather brought bargain hunters out in their droves, who followed a map through the streets perusing the various stalls and enjoyed tea and cake in the village hall.
The sale was started last year as a fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support and local groups, and organisers were so encouraged by the support it attracted they decided to repeat it.
Mel Williams, who is among the resident organisers, said today's sale had outdone expectations.
