A community jumble sale with a difference proved to be a hit in Ellon at the weekend.
With no large scale events being permitted on the horizon, one local resident decided to put out feelers to see if Ellon residents would be interested in a stay at home carboot sale event.
After her idea received lots of positive responses, Clare Stewart started to organise the event.
The idea was that anybody who wished to take part would set up a 'stall' in their garden or Saturday, Sunday, or both, and everybody who signed up to take part would be marked on a map so that people knew where they could grab a bargain.
Around 20 households took part throughout the weekend selling a variety of pre-loved goods including clothes, toys, DVDs, books and furniture.
The event has received positive feedback from both stallholders and shoppers, and neighbouring settlements are now looking at organising similar events.
