160 miles of yard sales taking place along Highway 64

The 23rd Bargains Galore on 64 event is 160 miles of yard sales, antiques and collectibles along Arkansas Highway 64.

FORT SMITH, Ark. — The 23rd Bargains Galore on 64 is taking place this week along Arkansas Highway 64.

From Aug. 11 to Aug. 13, 160 miles of yard sales, antiques and collectibles will be along Highway 64. The sales will take place in Fort Smith past Conway and on to Beebe.

It’s the 23rd year for Bargains Galore with almost 20 different cities participating this time around. And some flea markets are getting in on the action too.

“We’ve had a lot more people in today, and we expect a lot more over the next two or three days,” said Debbie Weaver, Manager at Crawford County Flea Market.

The Crawford County Flea Market has everything from clothes and jewelry to antique furniture and toys dating all the way back to the early 1900s. Some vendors set up just for Bargains Galore.

“It’s bargains. That’s the way it’s gonna be throughout the week. We like to sell it, not take it back home,” said seller Tim Davis.

Tim Davis and his wife set up along the highway. They had a store on main street, so most of their items come from that or items they inherited from family.

But for most of the sellers, their favorite part about the event is the people.

“I like dealing with people,” Weaver said.

And this weekend is about much more than just bargains.

“You get, a lot of them tell you about their life, you know, kind of like we are right now, this is our life,” Davis said.

And some buyers just come to see everything.

“I just stopped to admire all the goodies everybody’s put so much energy in, I’m not supposed to be buying anything,” said customer Steven Wood.

This sale has anything you can hope for, but as one customer said, if they don’t have it you don’t need it.
