WINNSBORO — All indications are that The Big Grab was a big success as motels and B&B’s had overnight guests, restaurants were busy, and vendors made money.

Some groups that had set a goal for earnings surpassed expectations, said Terry Vickers, president of the Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce.

“Individuals were pleased to trade their unwanted items into folding green cash. There may have been a few traffic issues and some folks sold out early and left,” she said. “As we grow the event there will be growing pains. Everyone is looking forward to 2016 and another Big Grab 43 Mile Yard Sale.”

The 43-mile yard sale was held Sept 4 and Sept. 5. This year was the fourth annual Big Grab and it stretched from Blythewood to Ridgeway and Winnsboro and back to Blythewood featuring vendors selling everything you could imagine.

The yard sale is sponsored by the towns of Blythewood, Winnsboro and Ridgeway, and the Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce.
