Shoppers get ready – the semi-annual Ultimate Yard Sale will
make another appearance in downtown Swainsboro this weekend.
Starting at 7 a.m. on Saturday, November 5, the Boneyard, Roger
Shaw Street, and Patriots Square will become a shopper’s paradise
as vendors fill the downtown area selling everything from
electronics to sports equipment to clothing and more.
The event, sponsored by the Downtown Development Authority of
Swainsboro and the Swainsboro-Emanuel County Chamber of Commerce,
is held each June and November.
“All spaces at Roger Shaw Street and Patriots Square have been
reserved,” said Director of Downtown Development, Lynn Brinson,
“However, the Boneyard, with the exception of the shelter and
pavilion, will be available on a first-come, first-served basis on
the day of the event.”
There is no charge to participate the event, which is expected
to run until 11:00 a.m. It is important to note that the Boneyard
and Roger Shaw Street will be closed to traffic from 7 a.m. – 12
“Whether you plan on coming to the Ultimate Yard Sale to sell
your wares or to shop for something unique, it always has a great
turnout and it is always a lot of fun,” said Brinson.
