From Trash to Treasure

From Trash to Treasure

Whether you are a bibliophile or your quest is for vintage vinyl, cool clothes or mid-century furniture. Florida is where you want to be the second Saturday in November each year. Garage or Yard Sales are ubiquitous to communities across the US each weekend and the bargain hunters are becoming more specialized in their search techniques.

Communities hosting garage sales can put their sale on the trail and list key items, while buyers can create a personalized “My Trail to find the best routes for them and the best areas to shop.

Securing the family structure by clearing out the Hoarder’s garage and making a profit at it is worth the time.  Feel happy knowing what you don’t need is moving into someone else’s hands that can and will enjoy it possibly for years to come. Reduce, reuse, recycle to avoid filling up our limited landfill space. All are prevalent purposes for joining in the Florida Sale Trail.

Not a new idea – for a sale trail. Australia and Great Britain each have one for the entire country one weekend a year. For years the “older longest-yard sale stretched out from Tennessee and now peaks into Michigan each August. In Florida several areas have had regional trails established the last few years.  The Great Florida Yard Sale on Hwy-19 in Citrus County; the Flea Across Florida on Hwy- 90 from Pensacola to almost Jacksonville; The Ridge Scenic Highway Corridor along SR-17 in Polk County and the Super Scenic Yard Sale along A1A from Ponte Vedra to Flagler Beach among the largest trails in Florida.

FloridaSaleTrail takes the next important large step to tie all of Florida together with an advanced technology platform and social tools to make it simple and easy for all of Florida hundreds of cities to participate.

The Florida Sale Trail is held annually on the Second Saturday in November each year. This year, the date is November 12, 2016. For more information, visit
