Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Bargain hunters lined the streets in Duluth for the 33rd annual Park Point Rummage Sale.

Hundreds of people lined Minnesota Ave to get their hands on some of the best bargains in town.

From Christmas candles to kids clothes, sellers say there's something for everyone.

"We're getting rid of all kinds of things, we've got baby clothes, candles, Christmas, brand new items, lamps, tables all kinds of stuff," said rummage seller, Jeri Sobczak.

For more than five years Jeri Sobczak and her friend Carrie Daniels have been selling their old items to new faces and they say it's a great time every year.

"Just coming down here, I think that it gives us the energy and the boost to kind of get out here and get all of our stuff out here for people," said rummage seller Carrie Daniels.

And it's that same spirit that has sellers a mile down the point saying it's a fun annual community collaboration.

"Everybody gets involved in this down here and to me it's something that's really special, neighbors over there and neighbors down there everybody's getting involved in that," said rummage seller, Pete Culre.

For some, this two day, 4-mile sale is an opportunity to part ways with things that hold no sentimental value.

"Not really, that's kind of why it's here, it's just kind of fun to just put it out there and see what people want to buy and you get all kinds you get the tire kickers, people that are serious," said Culre.

And if you're serious about a grabbing a good bargain you'll have another day to hit the sales.

"We'll be out here starting at 8 and I think it goes until like four and we'll definitely down here with our tables."

The big sale continues Saturday, rain or shine kicking off at 8:00 a.m. and wrapping up at 5:00 p.m.
