Big Grab set for Sept. 11 – 12

BLYTHEWOOD/FAIRFIELD – Whether you’re buying or selling, it’s time to get ready for the annual 50-mile Big Grab community yard sale – COVID-style.

“The Big Grab has always been a successful weekend for the Blythewood/Ridgeway/Winnsboro communities and I think this year will be no exception. We are, of course, hoping everyone, both vendors and shoppers, will observe the CDC restrictions – wear masks, use hand sanitizer and social distance,” Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce Gene Stephens said.

Those who have space for vendors to set up to sell their wares, contact the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce in Winnsboro (803-635-4242) or Liz Humphries at Blythewood Consignment in Blythewood (803-691-6808).

The sale is set for Friday, Sept. 11, from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 12, from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. The  shopping crawl extends from Blythewood to Ridgeway, then along Highway 34 to Winnsboro where vendors will be set up along the Highway 321 Bypass, Highway 200 and through downtown Winnsboro back to the Bypass and back to Blythewood via Highway 321 to Cedar Creek and then to Blythewood Road.

Information cards are available in shops in Blythewood, Ridgeway and Winnsboro.
