Every year on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Labor Day weekend, the Hwy. 61 Yard Sale offers flea-market finds along a more than 61-mile stretch of road from Festus to Jackson, Mo. But Labor Day is not necessarily the best time to have your own yard or garage sale, according to The Spruce, since so many families will be celebrating the last gasp of summer with a vacation or other plans. The good news? You’ll have more time to declutter and sort your stuff before you post those sale signs the weekend after!
