The sale, which raises money for the Patearoa Bowling Club, is named after district identity Bob McSkimming.
"Bob McSkimming was an old shopkeeper in the area and he used to take his wares around in an old cart," Mr Hore said.
The event was basically a big community garage sale. All the goods for sale had been donated by community members, Mr Hore said.
However, he said the timing of the sale meant they attracted a large number of holidaymakers that had flooded to the region, as well as locals looking for a bargain.
He estimated the event had been going for more than 10 years and this year had attracted a couple of hundred people.
Though he was unsure how much money had been raised, he said the funds would go towards subsidising the club's activities.
