Let Beaumont Inn bed and breakfast serve as your lodging headquarters for this 400-mile sale across Kentucky in early summer each year (June 6-9, 2013). A total of 60 communities, hundreds of yard sales, food vendors, and antique shops participate in this annual four-day event the first weekend in June. Antique shops are open earlier and stay open longer. If you need to take a break from shopping, enjoy one of the many events during the sale.
Last year, people from 32 different states came from as far away as Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Wisconsin, New York and even a number of people from Canada. One of the vendors even sold lawn furniture to a couple from Alaska! What everyone found upon arriving was 400 miles of friendly people and terrific bargains! Between the historic communities of Cadiz and Elkton, someone purchased a quilt for $3 and sold it a few miles down the road for $120. Another person purchased a signed print for $40 which he knew he could sell for $1,200. The comment most often heard was “This is great! I’ll be back next year!”
With over 200 antique shops along the route, 11 state parks, numerous Civil War sites, museums, original Kentucky crafts and specialty shops located along the route, there is always something to see and do along this historic route.
