The 400 Mile Sale continues through Sunday along U.S. Highway 68 and 641 in Marshall County. Now in its tenth year, the sale has grown each year according to Debby Spencer, president of We Make Things Happen, the organization responsible for the event.

Dozens of sales are in progress across Marshall County. Spencer said communities like Draffenville, Sharpe and Aurora have been strong supporters of the event.

Jennifer York, of Olive, and granddaughter Madison Anderson, of Fairdealing, were out on Thursday for the first day of the sale.

"It's been a big day," said York. "We started in Fairdealing, went to Reidland and are heading back to Fairdealing. We'll probably go a little longer today, then head back out Saturday. Saturday is when all the people that work put their stuff out, so there's much more."

Jonda Istas, who lives along the route between Draffenville and Fairdealing, was busy selling her wares on Thursday. "I've been doing this ever since it started. I started setting up Tuesday night, then my daughter helped me and we set up all day Wednesday," said Istas.

The sale stretches from Paducah, along Hwy. 68 through Maysville and branches off along U.S. 641 through Murray, Hazel and into Tennessee.

Motorists in Marshall County are advised to be cautious along the route. Traffic is heavy along U.S. 68 and 641 along the sale route. Watch for slow moving vehicles and sudden turns.
