This is not limited to Tryon and includes anywhere along Hwy. 176 in Polk and Henderson counties and upstate South Carolina. It does not have to be directly on Hwy. 176. Temporary signs are encouraged to direct people to your yard sale.

There will be some parking spots in downtown Tryon where residents may set up a table to sell their yard sale items. Spots are available on a first-come first-served basis. You must provide your own table, and park off Trade Street to allow folks to shop. Nonprofit organizations or churches are encouraged to set up.

Firearms, animals, alcohol, drugs or tobacco, adult or offensive content, counterfeit or other illegal items, prepared foods or baked goods, unless fundraising for a nonprofit organization, are not permitted. Produce is allowed, if you have a commercially prepared food item. Contact 828-859-6484 to discuss.
