Free Lance-Star: Local Yard-Sale Trail Starts Friday

September 10th, 2014

Local yard sale enthusiasts will have plenty to keep them busy from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday.

That’s when the second annual “Route 208 Sale Trail” takes place along Courthouse Road.

Last year, the yard sale trail stretched 24 miles, from Four-Mile Fork to Lake Anna. This year, it will be 28 miles, stopping at Dickinson’s Store in Louisa County.

Debby Hall, who founded the sale trail with Jean Satterwhite and Joanna Sekuterski, said she hopes this year’s event will feature even more yard sales.

“We’ve gotten an awful lot of responses about additional people wanting to come in,” she said.

The women modeled the event after the popular Route 11 Yard Crawl, a 43-mile yard sale trail that runs between New Market and Stephens City in the Shenandoah Valley.

Participants are reminded not to set up yard sales along the public right of way or block traffic. “Route 208 is an extremely busy highway, and safety is a primary concern,” reads a press release on the event.

The event will be held rain or shine.
