Friday, August 11, 2017

Wartrace, Tenn. - An annual tradition in late August for middle Tennessee pickers and yard sale fans is the town-wide yard sale held in historic Wartrace, Tenn. This August 25 and 26, Wartrace is opening its arms to out-of-town vendors and dealers and encouraging local residents to scour their garages and attics for items to offer the hundreds of visitors who attend the event each year.

Buyers will find antiques, collectibles, flea market merchandise, handmade crafts, and the occasional odd ball what-is-it along the thoroughfares and off the beaten paths in town. The Friday and Saturday event sponsored by the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce will take on a festival atmosphere, with food vendors and a music DJ on the square.

Dealer space is available downtown at a nominal fee for out-of-town merchandisers and food vendors. Local residents are invited to hold sales in their yards at no charge. Contact the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce at (931)580-2866 or by email at laurapgentry@att.net to reserve vendor space. The sale opens at 6 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. each day.

Wartrace is located approximately one hour from Nashville and Chattanooga on Interstate 24. From I-24 exit No. 97 take Highway 64 and drive 10 miles west to Wartrace.
