25-Mile Yard Sale Planned from Blythewood to Winnsboro

A 25-mile yard sale that will connect Blythewood, Ridgeway and Winnsboro is planned for Friday, Sept. 7 (noon – 8 p.m.) and Saturday, Sept. 8 (7 a.m. – 2 p.m.)

The event will coincide with Ridgeway’s semi-annual sidewalk sale as well as it’s First Friday in September. The Chamber of Commerce for Blythewood and Fairfield County want to bring traffic to businesses along the Highway 21 and 34 routes.

The merchant groups in the three communities will work closely together in organizing the road-side sale, which will span from Exit 24 (the downtown Blythewood exit off I-77) north on Highway 21 to Ridgeway and then on Highway 34 through downtown Winnsboro and back down Highway 321 via a short section of Highway 200 to connect back to Highway 34.

“The sale will allow local folks who have attics, garages and storage sheds full of items to clean them out and sell things they want to part with,” said Ridgeway merchant Denise Jones.

“A group sale is better than selling alone. More stuff draws more traffic,” Jones said. “We are encouraging sites along the route to have several families together. So mark your calendars and begin talking to your friends and neighbors about finding a location along the route to sell your treasures.”

Blythewood, Ridgeway and Winnsboro will be issuing “Big Grab” yard sale signs for your locations.

“We will also try to help sellers secure some generic locations along the planned routes should they been needed,” Jones said.
