As with 59 other communities in Kentucky, Cadiz’s Main Street was peppered with balloons signaling another stop along the sale.
In just a year, the sale “has at least doubled in size,” said Cindy Sholar, director of Renaissance on Main. “It is a big thing.”
Near West Cadiz Park, merchants June Barlow and Jean Clark were pleased with business.
“We were shocked at how well we did,” said Barlow, speaking of Thursday’s rain-dampened business.
For Barlow and Clark, the 400 Mile Sale isn’t merely an opportunity to do a little spring-cleaning and make a few bucks.
“This is our business,” Clark said. The two run Post Distributors, Inc., taking items like designer-comparable sunglasses across the country to large events, like home and garden shows.
They did set out plenty of yard sale items for the 400 Mile Sale, however, in addition to their regular items.
“The fuller the lot gets, the more people come in,” Barlow said.
Clark said they’d seen customers from Tennessee, Florida and beyond.
“We also had someone from England — and she bought something,” Barlow said.
