Fifth Annual “Fifty Mile Trail of Treasures” to be Held Saturday, October 12

Do you have too much “stuff” in your house and you would like a chance to get rid of it while making a little extra cash? Organizers are making plans to help you out with the announcement of the date for the fifth annual non-ceasing yard sale to wind through DeSoto Parish and end in Joaquin, Texas. The “Fifty Mile Trail of Treasures” will be a continuous yard sale, with vendors setting up on Hwy 171 in Stonewall, where they will continue through Mansfield. Shoppers and treasure seekers will then find their way down Hwy 84 through Stanley and Logansport, cross over the bridge into Texas with Haslam and Joaquin lying at the end of the trail.

We all have things that others might be willing to seek out as their “treasure”. Keeping that in mind, we all have many unwanted or unused things that our homes overflow with. What better way to share them while making a little money on the side than to set up a booth on “the trail”! Items from baked goods to pets to collectibles to crafts are welcome. The old adage “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” seems to ring true with collectors as well as bargain hunters. The possibilities are endless on what you might find in this fifty-mile trek.

What if you don’t live or own property on Hwy 171 or on Hwy 84? While in the planning stages, organizers have obtained permission for usage on properties in Stonewall, Grand Cane, Mansfield, Logansport and Joaquin for this very purpose. For safety measures, no one will be allowed to set up on the actual highway or in the highway median strips.
