If you participated last year at the group site, and would like to get the same spot, your reservation is due by June 18. Reservations will be accepted until the day of the sale, but you will not be guaranteed the same spot. If you have not participated before, you are invited to join in the fun, while making some money and getting rid of a lot of items that may just be laying around your house or garage. This is a great way to meet new people. This sale is advertised all over the USA. An estimated 8,000 shoppers will be visiting our small towns within this three-day period. The sale is held in northeast Oklahoma and southeast Kansas. Twelve small towns are located along the sale route. There are over 40-plus antique and boutique stores all along the route.
