The fourth annual 301 Endless Yard Sale will take place June 17-18 along U.S. 301 in North Carolina.
Participating towns are Weldon, Rocky Mount, Wilson, Micro, Kenly, Selma, Smithfield, Four Oaks, Benson and Dunn.
Last year Halifax joined the group, forming a chain of five consecutive counties in the yard sale.
Along the 100-mile stretch of highway between Weldon and Dunn, vendors will offer antiques, collectibles and more. Hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
Never miss a local story.
Reports from towns and vendors taking part last year show that the event continues to grow, with vendors and nearby businesses reporting good sales. In addition, the Great American Country cable network was in multiple counties taping an episode of its show, “Endless Yard Sale.”
“This event was spearheaded by Mayor Cheryl Oliver of Selma and encouraged by retailer Tommy Abdalla, who annually attends the 127 World’s Longest Sale, which stretches more than 600 miles from Michigan to Alabama,” said Donna Bailey-Taylor, executive director of the Johnston County Visitors Bureau.
“Our goal with this event is always to bring visitors to the participating counties for the two-day sale, and each year continues to be a success,” Bailey-Taylor said.
The visitor bureaus in all five counties will provide marketing support and help to coordinate meetings for the event’s organizers with each town.
Preparations are underway for welcoming visitors who are invited to explore the country roads of Halifax, Nash, Wilson, Johnston and Harnett Counties to look for that unique collectible along the 301 Endless Yard Sale, Bailey-Taylor said,
