Dixie Highway Yard Sale Shopping Tips:

  • Keep an eye out for food and drink vendors along the route. When you're treasure hunting, you don't have time to sit in a restaurant. 
  • Watch for yard sale signs pointing the way to off-highway sales, especially as you travel through cities and towns along the route.
  • If you're traveling to the Dixie Highway Yard Sale from another area, here are some options for lodging along the yard sale route.
  • View the official listings for huge group sales and flea markets scheduled to take place along the Dixie Highway in conjunction with the yard sale event.
  • Wear comfortable lightweight clothing and take lots of sunscreen to protect your skin. Georgia in June means super-hot temperatures.
  • Feel free to haggle for lower prices on things you like with hefty price tags. You'll likely have the most luck haggling on the last day of the yard sale. The sellers will be tired and ready to have that merchandise gone.
  • Read Highway Yard Sale Shopping Tips before you head to the sale and make sure you take your treasure hunting tool kit. You'll be prepared to shop like a professional picker.
  • Have your car serviced before you hit the road, and make sure your air conditioner is working. You do not want to stranded on a southern highway in the summer heat.
  • If you intend to buy things like records remember to crack your car windows or risk your records warping in the summer heat.  
  • Sign up for the Dixie Highway 90-Mile Sale newsletter for updates as the event plans progress each year.
