It’s a bargain hunters dream —over 400 miles of yard sales on one stretch of road held over two days.
The annual Hwy 82/287 Yard Sale will be held on Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3.
There will be yard sales, garage sales, sidewalk sales, farmers markets and flea markets in participating communities covering 425 miles of the Hwy 82/287.
The Red River Valley Tourism Association said the list of towns participating so far include Nocona, Henrietta, Gainesville, Muenster, Bonham, Paris, Saint Jo, Honey Grove, Clarksville, Forestburg, Detroit, Avery, Annona, DeKalb and Reno.
So, how does it work? Along the way, participating town will have maps available guiding shoppers to the special sales sites throughout their communities. Some towns will have yard sales set up at a central location, or spread throughout the community. Still, others will showcase their downtown merchants or their flea markets/trade days. In most communities, sellers DO NOT set up along the highway.
