The 1st Saturday of June each year offers a great way to help move or get rid of household items you’ve accumulated over the years. “A great way to start anew,” says Donna Livingston, Administrator for the Edgefield County Chamber of Commerce.
Peachtree 23 Yard Sale – spanning 44 miles – offers various ways to hold a yard sale. Get a group together, have an independent yard sale, or call the individual municipalities to secure a space in their areas. 8 towns participate in this event, which is in its Eighth (8th) year. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger – “Everything you want to find, you can find on the “Peachtree,” says Pat Asbill, former Mayor of Ridge Spring.
