Missouri's Annual Largest Garage Sale underway in Neosho

Updated:

It's a time bargain hunters look forward to every year - Missouri's Annual Largest Garage Sale in Neosho is currently underway.

The city-wide sale usually brings in around 8,000 treasure seekers.  Rebecca Spooner and Renee Capocasa of Columbus, Kansas are two of them.

The women transform other people's clutter into cash.  They give new life to the different bargain pieces they find, then re-sell them at up to double the price.

Spooner says it sometimes takes up to 20 hours to finish a piece and she never knows how it's going to turn out.

But she says that's all the fun.

"We'll take it back a lot of times, pieces need fixed, there are parts missing, you have to put them back together then we usually refinish them," says Spooner.  "Sometimes we'll have people want something in a certain color.  We'll go ahead and do it that way or sometimes you just wait to see what the painting gods tell you that that piece needs to be that color."

The city-wide sale is also going on Saturday starting at 7 a.m.
