2012 Town-wide yard sale
2012 Town-wide yard sale

An annual tradition in late August for middle Tennessee pickers and yard sale fans is the town wide yard sale held in the historic town of Wartrace, Tn.

This Aug. 22 and 23, Wartrace is opening its arms to out of town dealers and encouraging local residents to scour their garages and attics for items to offer the hundreds of visitors who attend the event each year. Buyers will find antiques, collectibles, flea market merchandise, hand made crafts, and the occasional odd ball what-iz-it along the thoroughfares and off the beaten paths in town. Previous yard sales have found new homes for boats, cars, and farm implements.

   

This year’s Friday and Saturday event takes on a festival atmosphere as the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce sponsors a Kid’s Zone with attractions including a bouncy inflatable, pony rides, and food vendors.

Dealer space is available at a nominal fee for out of town merchandisers and food vendors. Contact the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce at 931 389-6144 or by email at townofwartrace@att.net. The sale opens at 6 a.m. each morning.

Wartrace is approximately one hour from Nashville and Chattanooga on Interstate 24. From I-24, exit #97, take Highway 64 10 miles west to Wartrace.
