BLYTHEWOOD/FAIRFIELD COUNTY – It was another Great Big Grab in Blythewood, Ridgeway and Winnsboro and everywhere in between on Friday and Saturday.

“It was the biggest two days of sales we’ve had this year,” Liz Humphries, owner of Blythewood Consignment said. “There’s a lot of traffic associated with the Big Grab, but for many of the town’s small businesses, it’s the single biggest money maker we have.”

Amberlyn Hunter, Madison Jones, Louvenia Hunter, Barbara Coleman, holding Blake Martin, and Jessie Moore shopped the Big Grab at the large lot of vendors in front of Sea Pro Boats on Hwy 34.
