Johnston County and its towns along US 301 are part of the annual 301 Endless Yard Sale. This event takes place the third weekend in June and is patterned after the long established 127 Longest Sale and inspired by the HGTV television show. The communities along US 301 join together with deals, antiques, collectibles and more along a 30 mile stretch of highway between Kenly and Benson, NC. Many sellers are located along the stretch in well established visitor sites like the Tobacco Farm Life Museum in Kenly, TWM Antiques in Selma and Benson Korner Flea Market....as well as families, churches and schools on the route with vendors. It has now expanded through five NC counties and has over 100 miles of shopping.
