US 60 yard sale set for Saturday

Aug. 2, 2013 —     Sellers will turn out Saturday at the annual US 60 Yard Sale in hopes of finding buyers for their wares.

    In the spirit of yard sales, bargain-minded shoppers are sure to be looking for great deals.

    The local event is sponsored by Morehead Tomorrow, Inc., the city's Main Street organization promoting economic growth and sustainability of the downtown area.

    “There will be plenty of space for vendors to set up their tables. Running out of room would be the best problem we could hope for,” said Tony Pence, interim Main Street manager.

    Pence was named to the post in April and is the primary organizer for this year’s US 60 Yard Sale.

    “Anything you can haul in and haul out is fair game to sell, just as long as it isn't illegal,” Pence added.

    Spaces will be open at the MSU commuter parking lot across from Dairy Queen beginning at 6 a.m. Saturday.

    Vendors will be charged for the total amount of parking spaces used once they have completed setting up.

    The price for a parking space is $15 plus $10 for each additional space. Vendors will be responsible for providing their own tables, chairs and other equipment.

    Vendors and patrons also are encouraged to visit nearby restaurants for food and drinks needed throughout the day.

    The US 60 Yard Sale officially is open for business between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.

    Joe Lewis can be reached at or by telephone at 784-4116.
