MISSOULA – Garage sale vendors and shoppers are invited to the University of Montana for the “World’s Largest Garage Sale” from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, in the UM Parking Garage.

The garage sale is hosted by the UM Advocates, a campus service organization. It will be held on the first two levels of the parking garage next to the Mansfield Library on the east side of campus.

Vendors can rent two parking spaces for $25 and additional spaces for $10 each. Each parking space is 9 feet by 18 feet. Vendor setup begins at 7:30 a.m.
