      So far, so good

      The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter's first rummage sale has been doing well.

      The sale generated a great turnout, and UPAWS believes it is due to the new location. Eight hundred dollars was raised for the animals after the first day of the sale.

      UPAWS say they are hoping to raise double the money after the sale is over on Saturday.

      New donations are still being accepted and are appreciated.

      "We're really pleased with how it's been going. Yesterday was our first day, Thursday, and it was phenomenal. People were waiting at the door before eight and we were excited to get in, and it was just all day, traffic all day, really up until almost six o'clock, and we closed at four," said Lareina Van Strien, Manager at UPAWS.

      The sale is still going on for one more day on Saturday from 8 a.m. To 4 p.m. at the Masonic Building in downtown Marquette.
