The 301 Endless Yard Sale is coming back this year after a COVID-19 break in 2020.
On Friday, June 18, and Saturday, June 19, more than 100 miles of U.S. 301 will be filled with vendors and shoppers.
Hours vary by vendor, but 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day is typical.
“Historically, the 301 Endless Yard Sale attracts people from all over the country and as far away as Canada,” said Ashby Brame, director of marketing for the Johnston County Visitors Bureau. “If the sale had happened last year then this year would mark year 10 … a decade of deals, unique finds, treasures and more.”
Whether people are looking for something very specific or they’re just looking for an Americana road trip full of vintage shopping, local restaurants and interesting attractions, the 100-plus miles of the 301 Endless Yard Sale has something for everyone.
Explore Halifax, Nash, Wilson, Johnston and Harnett counties during the event.
This year’s Wilson County locations are Elm City Resale Market at 4723 Elm City Road, Elm City; Rocky Mount/ Wilson Flea Market at 4700 U.S. 301 N., Elm City; Knight’s Auto Sales at 3457 U.S. 301 N., Wilson; Truely Unique, 2006 U.S. 301, Wilson; Wilson County Fairgrounds, 2331 U.S. 301, Wilson; the Newman family, 7398 U.S. 301, Lucama; and Little Rock Original Free Will Baptist Church, 6115 Little Rock Church Road, Lucama.
Shoppers who are new to the sale can like/follow on Facebook.
Shoppers are urged to remain vigilant and cautious while shopping the route.
“Please keep your eyes on the road; if you want to look at an item or booth please park and then proceed to explore,” Brame cautioned participants, “Highway 301 is a two-lane road in most places so be careful of posted speed limits, pedestrians, and please pull fully off the roadway to park.”
“Due to the unique circumstances of this year’s sale we have some regular vendors who aren’t participating and some new vendors coming on board. So, we ask shoppers to stay tuned to the website vendor maps for each county if they’re looking for places to shop.” Brame said. “We appreciate everyone who has made this event a success for nearly 10 years now, and we’re excited to be having the sale again in 2021.”
