The World's Longest Yard Sale is this Weekend!

The World's Longest Yard Sale began on Thursday. Private sellers and antique dealers are setting up shop over a 450-mile stretch from Gadsden, Alabama, to Covington, Kentucky, along U.S. WWY 127.

The original idea came from former Fentress County Executive, Mr. Mike Walker. His plan was to bring travelers from the busy Interstate System to the less traveled highways of Tennessee and Kentucky. The event has grown every year since its modest beginning in 1987. This is the 19th year of the Sale and it promises to be bigger and better than ever!

Go here for more info! This is the official website for the yard sale.

If you are near the yard sale or go to it and would like to write about it ~ please contact the Editor of the Dew. Unfortunately none of the contributors seem to be in the same area as Highway 127.
