GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) — The Band Perry will host a “yard sale” in their hometown of Greeneville starting on Black Friday.

The band gave News Channel 11 a preview of their setup in a downtown shop space, where clothing, band merchandise, guitars, and more are up for sale.

“I’m told we have 9,000 items in there. We have a lot,” band member Neil Perry said.

Neil said all three members of the award-winning band are back home for the holiday and preparing a one-of-a-kind yard sale.

“We’re in the studio, in our studio here in East Tennessee getting ready to record new music for next year,” he said. “Just a lot of new things coming around the corner. So we were like, ‘You know, it would be nice to sort of clean out the things that we don’t use anymore, don’t need anymore.”

This includes racks of clothing the siblings have worn over the past 20 years of their music career. From the designer sneakers of brothers Neil and Reid, to prom dresses and stilettos worn by sister Kimberly.

Aside from cleaning out their closets, the family is also using the event to give back. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Niswonger Foundation.

“It helps kids from rural areas get a leg up for the future and give them higher education opportunities,” said Neil.

If you do stop by to shop, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to meet the band.

“I will probably be the greeter I imagine, that probably suits me better than anything else. Reid, he’ll probably be doing security or something. He’s the middle child so he’s got sort of that intimidation thing going on for him,” Neil joked. “No, we’ll be here just sort of hanging out. We’ve got a couple friends and a couple kids from the high school who are coming out to help. We have friends just all over here who are just pitching in. So it’s going to be all hands on deck.”

The sale will take place at 130 W. Depot Street and will run from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
