Are you ready for some bargain knick knacks? How about so many that you’ll not in a lifetime get to see them all?
What’s being billed as “The “World’s Longest Yard Sale” kicked off on Thursday, giving shoppers access to 690 miles of deals up and down US Highway 127.
The four-day event was started by an executive in Tennessee, who wanted to get more people off the major highway that spans more than 750 miles, and traveling the back roads of the rural area.
The yard sale, which was originally 350 miles, has nearly doubled in size since its conception 25 years ago and spans six states. Shoppers can check out the thousands of vendors in Tennessee, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Georgia, and Alabama.
“Southern hospitality has led to couples being taken into private homes because nothing else was available,” according to a statement. “Some visitors to the sale try to find lodging when and where needed. Some find cancellations, some go up to fifty miles, to the right or left of the sale route, to spend the night. Some even sleep in their car.
