River to River Yard Sale planned in Southern Illinois
The second River to River Yard Sale is planned July 6-9 in Southernmost Illinois.
The Southernmost Illinois Tourism Bureau notes that the idea for the River to River yard sale came after Julie Ames and her sister Sabra Smith visited the 100 Mile Yard Sale in a neighboring state.
After visiting that successful event they decided to start a similar event in Southernmost Illinois.
They decided to have the event from Thursday through Sunday after the Fourth of July.
The River to River Yard Sale is scheduled to follow Illinois Route 146 from East Cape Girardeau to Cave-In-Rock July 6-9.
Residents along this route are invited to clean out attics, basements, closets and storage sheds and offer items they would like to sell. Community-wide yard sales are being planned all along the route.
The organizers suggested that for those who want to have a yard sale, “the best thing to do is contact property owners directly who live along Highway 146.”
To learn where yard sales can be set up, contact Julie Ames at 618-697-2435, email firstname.lastname@example.org or find the event on Facebook.
Organizers said there is no cost to attend the yard sales.
They said to bring cash, because many of those having yard sales will not accept personal checks and aren’t set up to take debit or credit cards.
