Virginia’s 100 Mile Yard Sale

A highway yard sale so successful and beloved, Virginia's 100 Mile Yard Sale welcomes thousands of visitors to shop hundreds of antique and vintage booths across 15 towns

On one day, once a year, fifteen towns welcome thousands of antique shoppers to Virginia’s 100 Mile Yard Sale along U.S. Route 360/460. The highway sale runs one Saturday a year from 7 am until the last buyer is standing. While some tables are up and running on Friday, most vendors wait for the official start.

Enthusiasm and participation continues to grow year after year since its 2009 debut. And Virginia’s 100 Mile Yard Sale shows no signs of stopping. The founder has even scheduled the event on the calendar for many years to come. Not only are future dates set, they are also advertised on current flyers.

Additional neighboring towns are joining in. In fact, many now call it Virginia’s “More than 100 Miles of Yard Sales.” As a result, the route zigzags a bit. Not to worry. Maps provide clear descriptions to assist visitors from Moseley and Chula Junction to the end in South Boston.

The sky’s the limit on antiques and vintage items for sale. Like many highway yard sales, Southside Virginia’s includes individual sellers and antique dealers. Among higher value merchandise are Federal period desks and furniture, Mid-century modern cabinets and buffets, and possibly even a 1960s Ford Mustang. Also look for spindle bed frames, Depression glass, kerosene lamps, patio furniture, and vintage prints and framed artwork. Painted and distressed furniture such as trunks can also be in the mix.

Food can sell out by mid-afternoon. So arrive early for smoked ribs, pork butts, and chicken. History buffs might want to extend their stay. The bulk of the route runs through Amelia County, home to significant early American and Civil War moments.

Most importantly, Virginia’s 100 Mile Yard Sale only comes once a year. Take advantage of great deals that draw thousands of antique buyers to this one-day flea.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
