Wartrace Town Wide Yard Sale set

Posted on Thursday, August 22, 2013 at 10:45 am

     Wartrace, TN – For seventeen years in late August pickers and yard sale fans have been coming to the historic town of Wartrace, Tennessee in hopes of making a buy that leads to the perfect mantle piece, or at least makes for a good yard sale fish story.

Town Wide Yard Sale

This August 23rd and 24th the eighteenth  annual Wartrace Town Wide Yard Sale will once again find dealers and local families lining the thoroughfares into and out of town with antiques, collectibles, flea market merchandise, hand made crafts, and the occasional odd ball what-iz-it?. Previous yard sales have even found new homes for boats, cars, and farm implements.   

     This year the Friday and Saturday event will take on more of  a festival atmosphere as the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce sponsors a Kid’s Zone with attractions including  bouncy inflatables, face painting, games and prizes. Live music will be presented in the town square on both mornings beginning at 8:00 AM and food vendors will offer their wares throughout the day.

     Dealer space is available at a nominal fee for out of town merchandisers and food vendors. Contact the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce at (931)-389-6144 or by email at townofwartrace@att.net. The sale opens at 6:00 AM each morning.

     Wartrace is located approximately one hour from Nashville and Chattanooga on interstate highway 24. From I-24 exit #97 take highway 64 ten miles west to Wartrace.
