U.S. 50 Yard Sale scheduled for May 21-23
The 22nd annual Great U.S. 50 Yard Sale is scheduled for this weekend, May 21 through May 23 all along the federal highway in Jackson County.
First organized in 2000, the Great U.S. 50 Yard Sale is a coast-to-coast event. The highway runs from Seymour at the Jennings County-Jackson County line to Brownstown and the Jackson County-Lawrence County line. Many sales take place throughout the county off of U.S. 50 this weekend as well, so be sure to explore!
Times vary from sale-to-sale on what the hours will be.
After taking a year off due to the pandemic, the yard sale event is on. This is the perfect time to find some of your favorite garage sale items and turn what someone else doesn’t want anymore to something you can use.
Participation is open to all who are interested.
There is no central registration for the sale. Simply, people set up yard sales along the U.S. 50 route, coordinator Tom Taylor said.
Vendors are reminded they can’t set up on private land without permission and can’t set up on state right-of-way. Vendors also are asked to be aware of safety needed for pulling off and on the road. Anyone with space to rent is encouraged to advertise in advance.
Jackson County Sheriff Rick Meyer reminded residents to approach sales with safety and to keep in mind that traffic may be congested along the roadway.
Meyer suggested giving four second between you and the car in front of you and to be sure to watch for vehicles that are pulling out onto the highway.
“We encourage people to safely enjoy the yard sales this weekend by paying extra attention to congested areas,” he said.
