Peach Tree 23 Yard Sale is
Friday and Saturday, June 1-2


  Believe it or not the Peach Tree 23 Yard Sale is only days away.
  Eleven years ago all the small towns along Highway 23: Batesburg, Leesville, Monetta, Ridge Spring, Ward, Johnston, Edgefield, and Modoc got together to create a 44 mile yard sale that takes place in each of the towns and some areas along the  way on the first Friday and Saturday in June.
  The yard sale has grown each year and brings lots of folks from everywhere.
  Make your plans for Friday and Saturday, June 1 and 2, and join us in any of the towns along the Highway 23, or maybe, like some, start at the beginning and travel the 44 miles to its end. Join us in our annual fun event and “Rummage the Ridge”. For information, call 803-685-7810.
