World's Longest Yardsale

Has everyone here heard about the World's Longest Yard Sale? I love that sort of thing, but I first heard about it two years ago.

What: It's a huge group of yard sales with everything from single families selling stuff to huge parking lots full of serious antique dealers and EVERYTHING in between.

When: It starts the first Thursday of every August and lasts for four days, through Sunday.

Where: All along route 127. It goes from Alabama to Ohio.

Seriously, if you can make it, GO! Here is the official website

I was able to go with a good friend, and her family about two years ago. We started in Alabama and made it part way through Tennessee. My best score was a 1950s hat, with a matching hat box. The little old lady that sold it to me was so happy that a "young gal" like me was interested in a hat like that. I sadly had to pass over tons of vintage furniture. The price was right, but I had no cheap/easy way of getting it home. There was an amazing 1960s (?) station wagon for sale that my heart still longs for. It was one of the best vacations I've ever been on. Go if you can. It's amazing!


  1. I havent heard of this but Id LOVE it! If its close to us we'll be going for an afternoon <3

  2. Aw, I wish they had this sort of thing in England - sounds amazing!
