The Annual Kingston Springs City-Wide Yard Sale is Saturday, May 5th from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. If you would like to sign up to be listed as a seller on the official map that shoppers can pick up at area businesses and use to get around town to the sales, call 952-2110, ext. 10. There is no charge to be listed on the map. This is available to anyone in the 37082 zip code. The deadline to get your name on the list is Friday, April 27th at NOON, so we can get the map to the printers. There is no charge to participate in the event as a seller. When your sale is over that day, you can drop off your leftovers at the Goodwill truck that will be parked at the Middle School side parking lot (near Fire Hall #2). This is always a huge success with 75-100 sales occuring around town. It draws shoppers from miles around. The Town of Kingston Springs pays for advertising to 5 local and surrounding county newspapers. There will be multiple on-line listings also. Don’t miss this easy opportunity to clean out, repurpose and recycle!
