The event begins at 9 a.m. Saturday along the nationally designated A1A Scenic and Historic Coastal Byway, the 72-mile Atlantic coastal corridor through St. Johns and Flagler counties.

Friends of A1A will have marker signs at each location. Bargain seekers should look for signs on A1A directing garage sale hunters to side streets participating in the sale.

Its unknown how many persons will be hosting garage sales on that day, or what times they will be participating, but buyers should plan to get an early start, Friends of A1A Administrator Sallie O’Hara said. “We are hoping this will be a great day for bargain hunters to take a scenic and historic drive down A1A and find great sales in the two counties,” she said. “This is an opportunity to recycle our household goods and earn some extra money for the holiday season.”

In addition to the Friends of A1A, other community groups supporting the garage sale include the South Ponte Vedra Civic Association, the North Shores Improvement Association; Hammock Beach Baptist Church and the Matanzas Shores Women’s Club.
