This sale is a joke. I had plans of setting up for it but affter driving a long distance to check it out I discovered that there were very few sales in Henderson, none in Indiana and so many of the people I talked to about the sale commented "oh was that this weekend" If this is going to be a big event it needs to be addvertised before the day of sale and not seen on the local news affter sale is over.

We are sorry that you did not enjoy the event. There seems to be a bit of confusion on the location. To clarify, the event does not take place in Indiana. It takes place in Kentucky. A listing of where the sales are can be found are within the blog post. There is no one group who puts on this event; it is a collective of community members. We hope to continue to see its growth next year.
