WV Largest Yard Sale to Kick Off in Upshur, Lewis Counties

Posted: Updated:

West Virginia's largest yard sale will get underway Friday, August 2.

This year's sale has more than a hundred registered homeowners in Upshur and Lewis Counties.

The executive director of the Upshur County Convention and Visitors Bureau said people plan their vacations around the yard sale. Last year, a couple came to Buckhannon from the Gettysburg area for the sale.

Laura Meadows said the sale helps participants get rid of unwanted stuff and collect some extra cash.

"A lot of the people who are registered do it year after year because they know this is the time when there's a lot of people downtown shopping, and this is the time of year to get rid of it. So exactly it's a good time to do a second spring cleaning," Meadows said.

The yard sale will run from 8 p.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3. Those in attendance are advised to bring comfortable shoes, water, shopping bags, and cash or change.
