LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Dozens of Jones County-area families hoping to earn a little extra money gathered under one roof Saturday for a community garage sale. A city-wide rummage sale at the Magnolia Center brought together large groups of both sellers and buyers.

The events take place about three times a year in Laurel.

Organizers say they benefit not only buyers and sellers, but also charities like Laurel's Good Samaritan Center.

"This sale is much bigger than our December sale," said Beth Johnson, sale promoter. "So, it's just becoming more popular as more people find out about it," Johnson said.

The city-wide sales have been held for the last two years.
