At 3, Kricket hits market for a six
A WEEKLY tradition starts at an early age for three-year-old Kricket Wooster. He loves hunting down a bargain at the weekly Pig and Calf Sale. Kricket has bought various items at the sale and has even made a few friends.
"Today I bought a turkey," he said.
"I'm going to let it run around at home.
"I would like to keep it as a pet."
Kricket lives on a farm at Liston where he keeps various chooks and ducks he has purchased at the sale.
At the other end of the grounds are Venette Moffitt and Carol Kliendienst who have been coming to the sale for 16 years running.
"The two of us come to the sale often," Mrs Kliendienst said.
"We like to pick up a bargain.
"It's good to see what's available and to have a chat to locals every now and again."
Regulars to the sale, David Westlake and Bill Lynam, travel up from Stanthorpe almost every Wednesday.
"We come up looking for a bargain," Mr Lynam said.
"We also like to have a laugh at some people who seem to pay a lot of money for crap.
"It's a great day out and three of us travel up when it suits us all.
"We don't buy unless it's a good bargain, which makes the trip really worthwhile."
