CULLMAN, Ala. – In search of good deals on just about every item one can imagine, hundreds of people from Cullman and surrounding areas visited Sportsman Lake’s Summer Yard Sale on Saturday.

Vendors stretched all over the former campsites and beyond filling the pavilions and nearly every inch of the park. Many sellers were pleased with the turnout and touted a successful, profitable day.

While looking for new hats for himself and his young son, Scotty Hornsby said, “They got a lot to pick from and the prices ain’t bad neither. I like that Trump one and that one with the rebel flag. I might end up getting two for me and one for my boy so I can get both of ‘em.”

Nostalgic toys from the 1970s and 1980s along with vintage Tupperware and craftsman woodwork were offered at the yard sale. Blue jeans, furniture, clothing, bicycles and home decorations were sold for pennies on the dollar.

Vanessa Hagood proudly showed off her new garden tools which she said she found at a better price than she saw at big box retailers.

She shared, “I would have ended up spending my whole paycheck at the stores for what I need. The handles on my old stuff is either broke or the wood has splintered and I need to weed my garden like yesterday.”

Sportsman Lake Park, located at 1544 Sportsman Lake Road NW in Cullman, is operated by Cullman County Parks and Rec. Open seven days a week, the cherished park offers many activities for people of all ages.
