Filmmaker Steve Stolee captures the 'world's largest rummage sale'

To the delight of hundreds of shoppers the ever famous Rotary Auction went off without a hitch over the July 4 weekend.

For documentary filmmaker Steve Stolee the 51st Bainbridge Rotary Auction was much more than a chance to snag a few deals. Stolee has compiled film footage over the last three years of the one-day event to be turned into a documentary film called, “Another Man’s Treasure” scheduled to be released later this year.

Check out the interview compiled by journalist Jack Olmsted for the Seattle PI.
