It’s time again for the Annual City-Wide Yard Sale in Kingston Springs! The date is always the first Saturday in May, so this year that date is May 5th. Anyone in the 37082 zip code can participate and there is no charge for participation. The city pays for the advertising and creates a shopper-friendly map that is distributed for free. This is the best time to have a yard or garage sale as it always attracts hundreds of shoppers from miles and miles away. The streets are full of shoppers all day! This is a Rain or Shine event.
Every year there are 80 to 100 sales in the area. Anyone that registers their sale will have their address listed on the back of the map. All you have to do to register is call Kingston Springs City Hall at 952-2110, ext. 10. Registration will continue until Friday, April 27th. There are absolutely no registrations that can be taken after that date as the map has to be sent to the printer. Free maps will be available in Kingston Springs businesses on Friday, May 4th and Saturday, May 5th for shoppers to pick up.
The sales begin at 8:00 a.m. and run until 3 p.m. After the sales are over, sellers may take their “leftover”, unsold items to the GOODWILL truck that will be set up at the Middle School Parking lot from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. This makes cleanup easy and quick while benefitting a worthy charity.
This event started in 2000, so this will be the 12th year! Along with selling off your treasures, you will get to visit with many of your neighbors.
