After last year’s postponement due to COVID-19 and a narrow miss this year due to summer school, the North Carolina counties along Highway 301 are resuming the 301 Endless Yard Sale.
The event begins on June 18 and ends June 19 along the 100-mile route which traverses Halifax, Nash, Wilson, Johnston and Harnett counties.
Hours of the sale vary by vendor, but 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily is typical.
Historically, the 301 Endless Yard Sale attracts people from all over the country and as far away as Canada. “If the sale had happened last year, then this year would mark year 10 — a decade of deals, unique finds, treasures, and more,” said Lori Medlin, president of the Halifax County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Whether you’re looking for something very specific or you’re just looking for an Americana road trip full of vintage shopping, local restaurants, and interesting attractions, the 100-plus miles of the 301 Endless Yard Sale have something for everyone.”
More information is available on the Endless Yard Sale website and includes resources for vendors and shoppers. Maps are also available on the website.
Participants wanting a banner or vendor sign are encouraged to call the HCVB at 252-535-1687.
“From a safety perspective, we feel confident holding the sale due to vaccinations being offered more widely, and the fact that the sale is outside,” Medlin said. “However, it will be up to individual vendors to promote and enforce safety guidelines in their spaces to the extent they feel comfortable.”
