Hwy. 80 Yard Sale coming in October

Special to the Minden Press-Herald

The Historic Hwy 80 Yard sale runs from Texas to Georgia and occurs two times a year: the third weekend in April and the third weekend in October.

The fall edition of the yard sale will be held October 19-21 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday).

“This will be the fifth year that Minden area antiques shops have participated in this historic sale that runs along Hwy 80,” a press release about the event read.

Some shops will not open on Sunday, according to the press release.

“Any of these fine shops may have outside spaces for vendors to set up their wares,” it read. “Stop in and reserve a space soon.”

Brochures and flyers will also be available to help spread the word. There will also be areas in and between Haughton, Dixie Inn, and Bossier City.

Residents along Hwy. 80 are encouraged to set up yard sales on their own property as well.

Organizers of the event shared the following answers to frequently asked questions:

How can I become a vendor?

Anyone can be a vendor by simply having a yard sale in their yard, at their business or setting up in designated vendor places. Many communities have different places where vendors from within and outside of that town can set up a booth. Clusters of vendors may be found along the route.

What can I sell?

Almost anything. Junk, furniture, books, arts & crafts, paintings, toys, old farm equipment, tools, records, dishes and glassware, photo equipment, bicycles, motorcycles, boats, cars, trailers are all desirable items.

Where will the yard sales be?

Yard sales will be found along the route at homes located on the designated route, in businesses’ parking lots, alongside streets adjacent to the route, in wide open fields and pastures and basically anywhere people can find to set up. Some areas will have large numbers of vendors in one group, others may be scattered and, in some instances, you may travel for several miles or more without seeing a yard sale because of the distances between homes in rural areas.
