Anyone driving around Perry Friday could not help but notice the increased traffic in many residential neighborhoods as well as along more heavily-traveled routes.
The reason? The first day of the two-day annual Highway 141 Garage Sale was in full swing.
Cash-and-carry was king as one man’s ‘junk’ became another man’s treasure at dozens of sales in Perry alone. If communities all along the highway also participating, it is a safe bet both buyers and sellers managed to rummage up a good time.
Slow-moving vehicles trying desperately to read addresses off roadside signs, or gawking at the wares as they crept by at a snail’s pace while trying to avoid numerous parked cars, were common scenes. While some venues appeared to focus on clothing, others offered future or other household items while still others provided a consignment-shop variety of wares, all, no doubt, “marked to sell” at “bargain prices.”
With sunny skies and mild temperatures in the low 80s forecast for Saturday, it is a good bet the wheeling and dealing will continue at a brisk pace.
