Yard sale fun

These young ladies were selling cookies recently at the Gretna Farmers Market and will most likely do the same for the 100 mile yard sale.

Yard sale lovers in search of great items at thrifty prices are gearing up for the fall version of the 100-mile yard sale held in Virginia twice a year in the spring and fall. This year’s event starts on Thursday, September 29 and runs through Sunday, October 2.

The sales are primarily set up along the US 29 corridor from Lynchburg to Danville although some sales branch off.

In addition to setting up at private homes, many of the businesses and churches sell vendor spots.

Hyland Heights and Gospel Light are two popular spots near Lynchburg/Rustburg. Gospel Light is just one place offering indoor and outdoor spots. One “happening” spot in Altavista is the Trade Lot on 7th Street. It is only $5.00 a spot and they will be available on Friday and Saturday. Call 434-841-5540 to reserve a spot in this fundraiser for the high school band.

The Gretna Farmers Market on Main Street was packed with vendors at the last sale, so stop by. Free spots while they last. First come, first served.

Those are just a few of the places to shop for big bargains. Don’t miss it!
