Yard sale mania in Cocke County

Last updated: 8:43 PM, 04/07/2008

The first weekend in May promises to be a busy one for Cocke County with the Maid of Ramps Festival and plenty of sales across the community.

That's right. This weekend there will be dozens of yard sales, as people pull out the clothing, kitchenware, shop tools, and junk to sell.

The Newport Plain talk is carrying yard sale advertising for about 50 such events from almost every area of the county.

Classified Manager Brenda Crum said, "People have been coming into the office all week to advertise their yard sales. We can't remember a time that there has been so much interest and activity for yard sale advertising."

The weather is expected to cooperate and citizens will be on the roads early-some at daybreak-to find the best values and most interesting items. Be sure to read the classified section in this edition to select the sales you plan to visit. Or, if you have plenty of time, visit them all.
