Story: Second-hand trade

Opening the flood gates

The rush of punters when a garage sale begins was captured by the 2008 film Second hand wedding. Second-hand dealers, collectors and bargain hunters often gather well before the garage door opens. As in this clip from the film, once it does they all run in and grab anything that looks remotely interesting or valuable.
