Get Ready for Kentucky’s 400 Mile Sale

0

For the avid garage sale patron, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if the annual 400-mile garage sale looks like Christmas — with a big red heart emoji on the calendar app and all.

And it’s not like there won’t be a connection. I know we’re still over six months away from the holiday season, but I guess if you found the “perfect” item for someone on your shopping list, you’d grab it and hang on to it. .no matter the time of year.

THE 400 MILE SALE – FROM MAYSVILLE TO PADUCAH

I say that because the 400 mile sale is on its weekend; it starts on Thursday June 2 and lasts until Sunday June 5. I know if I had to find something I wanted to give someone for Christmas and they don’t have a birthday by then, I would take it.

Find out how this incredible event came to be:

By the way, although many of the sales you’ll find along the 400 Mile Highway ARE garage sales, they are OFFICIALLY known as the “400 Mile Sale” because there are places where the merchandise is inside. I guess they didn’t want to leave anyone out, and that sounds like a good plan to me. Now, if you’ve never visited, the 400-mile sale covers the entire length of US 68 in Kentucky, stretching from Mason County in the northeast to McCracken County in the southwest. .

HOW THE 400 MILE LAND SALE IS ORGANIZED

The event is divided into five regions, with the Lakes, Pennyrile, and South Central regions being the closest of the three states. But if you have the time, you might want to make it a fun weekend road trip. And if you want your garage sale to be part of it, you still have time to register, and you can do it here. And if your sale is a multi-site setup, you can register here.

HOW TO PLAN A TRIP AROUND THE 400 MILE LAND SALE

If you are a shopper looking for something specific, the 400-Mile Yard Sale website has a section called “Find Sales & Multi-Sites” where you can click on a specific county and then see all cities of the county who will participate. Plus, you’ll see what items you’ll find with each sale.

And if you’re planning a getaway around this huge garage sale, you’ve got restaurant and accommodation suggestions right at your fingertips.

Unless you’re planning on attending the 400 Mile Yard Sale, you might want to skip US 68 in Kentucky this weekend. Otherwise, enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience and good luck finding everything on what I suspect is a long shopping list.
