The Arkansas River Valley’s largest annual coordinated yardsale is set to take place on Thursday through Saturday, August 7th through the 9th. Sales will again saturate Highway 64 for 160 miles in West and West-Central Arkansas.
Cities along the 160 mile stretch include Fort Smith, Van Buren, Alma, Dyer, Mulberry, Ozark, Altus, Coal Hill, Hartman, Clarksville, Lamar, Knoxville, London, Russellville, Pottsville, Atkins, Blackwell, Morrilton, Plummerville, Menifee, Conway, Vilonia, Beebe…(have we left anyone out?)
This is the 15th year for the popular event featuring antiques, collectibles, and who knows what else. Bargains Galore offers a great opportunity for commercial vendors, non-profit groups, clubs, schools, churches, and civic organizations to promote their products or service…and the best chance of the year for individuals to clean out their garages, closets, and yards, while making a little extra much needed cash. There are no limitations on what sellers may sell, although antiques and collectibles are especially encouraged.
Those traveling along Highway 64 during the time of the sales are encouraged to drive slowly and watch out for others. Anyone needing to make any quick trips are advised to take any route OTHER than Highway 64 during this quite crowded event!
