Great Strait Sale

The Juan de Fuca Scenic Byway Association is proud to sponsor the Annual Great Strait Sale, a 61-mile yard sale to be held along state highway 112 the second Saturday of September.

People can participate by having private or neighborhood yard sales or by bringing sale items to community sale sites at the Joyce Depot Museum parking lot, the Clallam Bay bus barn, or the Village Market near Washburn’s in Neah Bay.

Sande Balch, event chairman, says, “Shoppers will find bargains and treasures along the Strait of Juan de Fuca Scenic Byway Hwy 112 from Laird Corner to Neah Bay. In addition to the advertised sales, individual sales will be signed on Hwy 112. Parks, scenic views, gas, food and restrooms are available along the route … as well as lodging for those who want to make more than a day-trip of the event. We hope that people enjoy the event and drive safely." 

"In general, we want to invite all of our neighbors to this event for block-party fun while the sellers make a little money and the buyers find some treasures" adds Balch.

A flier with map and sale ads to guide buyers to sales will be published in two formats …  in print and on the web site at   The printed flier will be available the week before the Great Strait Sale.  Fliers will also be available the day of the sale at the community sites in Joyce, Clallam Bay and Neah Bay.  The cost of listing a sale or fundraiser on the flier/web site is $10.  The deadline to submit/pay for an ad for the flier is August 29th, 2013.  Checks payable to the Juan de Fuca Scenic Byway Association and ad information (including your contact information) should be mailed to PO Box 188, Joyce, WA  98343.  Refer to the “Sample Ads” for examples of previous ads.
