Millions of jigsaw puzzle pieces were on sale at The Regent
Theatre's Anything But Books Sale in Dunedin yesterday.
Sale volunteer Kath Wallace, of Dunedin, said among the vinyl
records, CDs, DVDs, cassette tapes and other bric-a-brac were
about 2000 donated jigsaw puzzles.
Before the sale, a volunteer team made most of the puzzles to
ensure all the pieces were there.
She made about 200 jigsaws herself.
''I find it therapeutic.''
Noeline McFarlane, of Dunedin, said she came to the annual
sale just for jigsaws and bought five 1000-piece jigsaws
She waits until winter to start piecing the puzzles together,
Sale convener Alison Cunningham said more goods were needed
for the Regent 24 Hour Book Sale on May 2 and a truck would
be collecting books and other items across Dunedin on Sunday,
