Staged in November each year by Friends of A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway, this year's sale will stretch from Ponce Inlet to Fernandina Beach in Nassau County and include scores of residential and commercial vendors, according to the Friends of A1A website.
Sellers and bargain hunters are invited to participate from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and sellers are encouraged to preregister at scenica1a.org/garage-sale-registration-form. This will allow Friends of A1A organizers to limit the number of participants in smaller areas while in larger areas the host property owner decides the setup and location of vendors.
Cost is $20 per vendor and once the registration fee is paid, sellers may identify community locations desired, if not on their own property. Some spots may be limited.
Sellers bring their own tables, chairs and goods. Site hosts will arrange space layouts as needed. Vendors are asked to begin setting up at 7 a.m. and close by 3 p.m.

"The annual super scenic garage sale is a fun way for the Friends of A1A Scenic & Historic Coastal Byway to bring the community together," Friends of A1A president Bill McClure said Thursday in an email. "Thousands of people look forward to the event every year and often plan their weekend around it, whether it's as shoppers or sellers.
“We enjoy seeing familiar faces and meeting new people at each community site or as they travel along the A1A coastal corridor,” he said. “We were proud to receive the 2018 Northeast Florida Regional Council Award for Excellence in Economic Development and Tourism last year, recognizing our commitment to the communities, tourism and economic efforts our organization brings to the region."
This year’s event dovetails with the Ultimate A1A Pop Up! Biz Experience as participating restaurants along the A1A coastal corridor offer specials, promotions and deals Friday through Sunday.
