LANCASTER - For some, the annual city-wide yard sale is a family affair. Three generations were selling at the home of Doug and Angie Crossfield. Five-year-old Peyton Crossfield had his own tent, table and quart jar to collect quarters. Peyton's grandmother, Brenda Powers, said Peyton is selling his toys and cups of lemonade for 25 cents. "He wants to buy a SeaDoo (jet ski)," she said.
Next to Peyton's "booth" is Teresa Elwood with "dill pickled green beans." A jar is $3, but samples are free.
Peyton's father, Doug Crossfield, said the city-wide yard sale has been a successful event in years past. "If it's as good as last year, we'll make about $950," he said. "By 11:30 (a.m.) we were out of stuff."
But others around town said the yard sale isn't what it used to be, despite dozen of cars lining Ky. 52 through town just after 8 a.m. Saturday.
