Shoppers will be back this year looking for treasures at the 301 Endless Yard Sale set for June 17-18.

This year’s 301 Endless Yard Sale is set for Friday, June 17, and Saturday, June 18, along U.S. 301 in Nash, Wilson, Halifax, Johnston and Harnett counties. 

The annual event takes place along the 100-mile plus stretch of highway, offering deals, antiques, collectibles, DIY furniture, crafts and more.

Celebrating a milestone 10th anniversary this year, the regional yard sale attracts more than 15,000 shoppers and more than 2,500 vendors every year to sell or buy. People often stay overnight in the area to take advantage of the two full days of the sale, organizers say, with hopes of covering the entire 100-plus miles. 

Locations for vendors are posted on the 301endlessyard.com website, which prior to and during the sale will see more than 100,000 unique visitors. Another source of information for shoppers is the Facebook page.

“The five visitors bureaus work together to promote the event, encourage vendor locations and keep an open line of communication between local stores, restaurants, residents and county officials,” said Ashby Brame, director of marketing and public relations for the Johnston County Visitors Bureau. “But we’re just the middleman for the sale. Really, we could probably step out of the way and everyone would still show up. People are very enthusiastic about this sale.”

Shoppers interested in participating can visit www.301endlessyardsale.com or follow the Facebook page.
