A 100-mile long yard sale is happening in North Carolina this weekend. The event called “The 301 Endless Yardsale” spans 5 NC Counties. The communities along US 301 will join together with deals, antiques, collectibles, and more. The sale takes place along a 100-mile stretch of highway between Kenly and Benson, in Johnston County…. and now sites will be found in Halifax, Wilson, Nash, and Harnett Counties as well. The sale was mimicked after the long-established 127 Longest Sale and inspired by the HGTV television show “Flea Market Flip.”
Hours are Friday and Saturday, June 18th and 19th 7:00 am-5:00 pm. Yard sales can be found at homes located along the designated route on US 301, in business parking lots, along side streets adjacent to the route, and even in wide-open fields and pastures in our rural communities between the towns proper.
The original length of the US 301 Endless Yard Sale travels from Kenly to Benson, a 30 mile stretch through Johnston County. You might decide to start at the southern end and travel north or any combination. You may decide to jump on board anywhere in between. Parking may be limited in some areas to driveways or roadside in other places. VERY IMPORTANT – be cautious of the driver in front of you and pedestrians on the roadway – be patient and a parking space will present itself.
Recently added to the 301 Endless Yard Sale Route are Halifax, Nash, Wilson, and Harnett County. Halifax County is near the North Carolina border, if traveling to the state on I-95, the primary exit is 173. Venturing south from Halifax, shoppers will enter Nash County, then Wilson County, next will be Johnston, and then Harnett. As we mentioned you can start at one end and travel the route, or stay in one community and hub out to find your treasures.
