Antique Alley Preparations Underway

Plans are being made already for the 13th Annual Antique Alley and Yard Sale.

The event takes place May 16-19, along Highway 11 from Meridian to Bristol, Virginia. People who like to bargain-hunt or just like to shop may find unique treasures along the 502-mile-long venue.

Teresa Westbrook is the local organizer. She encourages interested vendors to contact her for information.

"What we want to encourage is that we want a lot of people to come set up and sell," said Westbrook. "There's all the time people trying to get rid of stuff that may not want to have a yard sale, that wants a big audience. This is the way to do it because we have thousands of people that come from all over the southeast to buy stuff."

Westbrook says the line of vendors in Lauderdale County usually starts near the Cracker Barrel entrance on Highway 11/80 and continues to Livingston, Ala. For more information, you may call 601-917-3727.
