The US 25 Yard Sale started Thursday and ends Saturday. It’s 425 miles of sales beginning in Covington, Ky., running through Anderson County and ending in Woodfin, N.C.. There are 42 communities participating along the route.
Buyers can make a complete circle through East Tennessee. In Corbin, Highway 25 splits into Highway 25W, which runs through Anderson County, and Highway 25E, which goes through Jefferson County, another participating community. They merge back together in Newport, Tenn.
If you live on US 25W in Anderson County, all you have to do to participate is set up your yard sale on your property.
If you do not live on US 25W and you would like to set up for the yard sale, you can go to the Lake City Recreation Center/Ball Field. There will be a set up fee of $10 per 10’ x 10’ space, and the covered area will be $20 per bay area.
All spaces are first come, first serve. Sellers are allowed to set up a tent but it must stay within the allotted space. The gates will open at 6 a.m. for the people to set up and at 7 a.m. for people to purchase items. All proceeds from the registration fee will go to support the Coal Creek Miners Museum.
If you have residential or commercial property on US 25W, you can set up or allow other people to set up on your property. It is at the discretion of the property owner to establish their own rules and fees.
If you plan on participating in the yard sale, whether you are an individual or a business/organization, you can submit your location to [email protected]. You can include a list of special items you have for sale.
